Aggressive Defense Strategies for Serious Drug Crime Cases

As with all of our criminal defense cases our strategy is comprehensive: we will examine the arrest reports, witness statements and police video (if one exists) to scrutinize the evidence against you. We will evaluate any search or seizure that was conducted to assure that your constitutional rights were not violated. If a search warrant was used we will investigate the genesis of the warrant and whether or not the officers stayed within the scope of the warrant. These evaluations may lead to the discovery that evidence obtained illegally during a search can be suppressed and not used against you in a trial. We always remember that the state has the burden of proof- the prosecution must prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt. We will hold the state to this strict standard and aggressively protect your liberty.

Conviction for a Drug Related Offense Can Affect the Rest of Your Life

Our approach to your defense reflects a basic fact of criminal law:  the government's responsibility to prove the charges against you beyond a reasonable doubt.  Our experience allows us to make accurate evaluations about the strength of the prosecution's case.  When it's weak from the start, we can work toward dismissal of the charges or victory at trial.  If the evidence against you is strong, then we help you reach the most favorable plea deal possible under the circumstances.

Work With Attorneys Who Can Make an Accurate Evaluation of Your Risks

We give our clients a good sense of what their risks are and what a reasonable outcome should look like.  Then it's up to you decide to accept a plea offer or take your defense to trial.  If you have no practical option but to put the government to its proof, our skill as trial lawyers is especially strong with the identification of weaknesses in the prosecution's case, and in exposing them through the cross-examination of government witnesses.
