Our attorneys know what type of evidence is going to exculpate you or mitigate your situation. That means we know what type of evidence will likely support your innocence or make your position better. If the victim wants to eliminate a criminal protective order (restraining order), we can work with the victim’s attorney (if they have one) in getting a letter sent to the DA about whether or not that person still wants to testify or is cooperative in the proceedings and we can make arrangements for the victim to come to court to express whether they want the order in place or not.
We can also analyze what a good resolution of your case would be and strategize about the benefits of pushing the case all the way to trial. If there is insufficient evidence, you have a viable defense, or you maintain your innocence, then we may suggest taking it to trial. Alternatively, if it’s a case that’s best resolved by way of a plea and negotiating a disposition, we will work on reaching a resolution that’s beneficial to you in both the short run and long run.
