Building a Strong Case
A charge of criminal activity is not the same as a conviction, and our job is to keep those two separate. Our justice system affords each person the chance to prove that their situation is not just what the prosecutors say it is. We can help you plan for the challenges ahead and build a case that protects your interests.
Some possible defenses can include:
- The alleged offense never took place: If you can show that the accusations against you cannot be true based on evidence, you may be able to avoid a conviction.
- You are not the perpetrator: Wrongful accusations happen more often than people think, but they are not publicized nearly as much as convictions. By showing that you were elsewhere when the offense took place, you may be able to avoid the consequences of your charges.
- You were coerced into a crime: Entrapment, coercion, and abuse are all potential causes for an otherwise law-abiding citizen to commit a crime. As your legal team, we will go over the evidence against you to show why your character prohibits such criminal activity.
- The harm was less severe than alleged: Some people have been given heavy sentences for crimes that weren’t so severe. Where possible, we will work to help the courts see that you need a second chance—not a life sentence.
- There was consent from the plaintiff: People have been known to change their minds with time, eventually deciding to accuse others of crimes they originally agreed to. Telling your history will be important here.
