Preparing Your Case

Our Approach to These Cases
The person arrested should not talk to anyone before speaking with the attorney. Often times, people try to proclaim their innocence, but law enforcement officers and police know how to use such declarations against the accused, engaging them in unexpected conversations and obtaining statements which out of context will be used against them.
We can immediately make attempts to have the person released from custody with either a bail reduction, being released on their own recognizance or contacting a reputable bail bondsman to assist in immediate release. We can also address any emergency protective order which the police may have executed at the arrest site.
We understand that an arrest for domestic violence can seriously disrupt your personal and professional life. We can assist in handling the matter swiftly, aggressively, and quietly to get you back into your usual routine.
In preparing your case for court, we will put the prosecutors to their burden of proving their case beyond a reasonable doubt. If they don’t have the evidence against you, the witnesses are unavailable thereby violating your constitutional right to confront and cross examine the witnesses against you, or it was a case of self-defense, we will be fully prepared to fight for your rights!
