Our criminal lawyers have built a reputation of aggressively defending our clients and, when necessary, taking cases to trial. The criminal justice system is founded on the plea deal; by pressuring defendants to plea, prosecutors pad their stats and courts can clear their dockets. Defense firms take advantage of this by taking on as many clients as possible, taking a fee while their clients swallow an unfair plea deal. A plea deal is only advantageous in a few cases, but 95-98% of casesnever go to trial.
By contrast, our firm has takenmore than 200 cases to trial, fighting for our clients’ rights and winning results they never thought possible. Even if your case never sees a jury, our Rocky River criminal defense attorneysalways prepare for trial to pressure the prosecutor and police officers to reduce your charges or drop the case.
Talk with a Rocky River Criminal Lawyer About the Penalties You Face
Many criminal attorneys do their clients a disservice by simply having them enter quick “no contest” pleas rather than challenging the evidence. Our Rocky River criminal defense attorneys always review the nature of your charges to advise you toward the most advantageous option in your position. Prior to entering any plea, we put appropriate pressure on the prosecutor and the police to ensure you are treated fairly. Evidence is improperly handled in many cases, rendering the rest of the prosecutor’s case totally unusable. If the police and prosecutor are unable to prove your guilt, taking the first plea deal on the table would be disastrous.
Your Rocky River criminal defense lawyer will make sure you know all the options on the table before you make a potentially life-changing choice.
Our Rocky River Criminal Defense Lawyers Understand What You’re Going Through
This may be the first time you have been charged with a crime, but even if it’s not, there’s no reason to go through it alone. Defense lawyers understand the consequences you’re facing; beyond the possible jail time to the potential for job loss, you’ll face a damaged reputation, social embarrassment, and everything else that goes along with being charged with a crime. Our experience with high-profile criminal cases allows us to advocate for you beyond the walls of the courtroom.
