Insightful & Detailed Advice from Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney
My work as a prosecutor has given me invaluable insight into the challenges faced by prosecutors during criminal proceedings. To convict you, the prosecution must accomplish many tasks, including upholding their burden of proof against you. In an effort to make the prosecution’s job as difficult as possible, I will carefully review your case to search for information that can be used against the state. Conflicting evidence or evidence of a mistake by police officers can be used as leverage to apply pressure on the prosecution to reduce or dismiss your charges during plea negotiations, or to prove your innocence during a court trial.
