Our clients want to be actively involved in their criminal case. Our clients spend a considerable amount of time educating their attorney about who they are and what they know about the case. Our clients realize that their input is the most valuable asset we have that the District Attorney does not. They expect to be informed about the strengths and weaknesses of their case and they participate in all decisions in the case. Our clients understand that the first goal in their defense is to obtain a dismissal of the criminal charges.
Because our clients are informed about their case and participate in all important decisions regarding how the criminal matter is handled, they realize that all cases will not be dismissed. Our clients are realistically informed of all potential outcomes in their case and understand that if the District Attorney does not dismiss the matter outright that we will be prepared to enter damage mitigation mode. Damage mitigation mode can include discussing a plea agreement or preparing to take the case to a jury trial. Our clients, after being informed of the nature of the charges against them, and of any available defenses, are in a position to make an informed decision regarding the direction of their criminal defense.
