Choosing the Right Criminal Lawyer

When making the decision to hire a criminal defense lawyer, several things must always be kept in mind. It is better to involve legal representation sooner, rather than later. Should you choose to work with an inexperienced firm or a public defender, you may get exactly what you pay for. With their time spread thin and their experience at a minimum, you risk facing serious consequences when using their services.

Do you need a criminal defense lawyer in Gainesville?

In any criminal accusation, once the charge is filed against you it indicates that the prosecutor believes they have enough evidence to convict you in court. The first action that must take place is a full review and analysis of all evidence, police reports, witness statements and lab reports. There are an astonishing number of criminal cases in which the evidence against the client is flawed, procedural errors took place or law enforcement violated the rights of the individual with regard to search and seizure or probable cause. After a review of the situation you face in your criminal case, we will determine what strategy should be employed in our defense of your case. Identifying the errors in the case can lead to a full dismissal of charges if serious procedural errors have taken place.

We energetically defend our clients, and give their cases the full focus and attention needed when criminal accusations are on the table. The criminal justice system is a dangerous place to be caught and if fast action is not taken to defend your case, some felony offenses can lead to years spent in state prison. Our state has the "three strikes law" and for those who have a prior criminal record, you are in serious danger of a long term prison sentence. We understand how important the outcome of the case is to you and your family and take an aggressive approach to defending our clients in court.
