Defending against Criminal Charges

There are certain steps a skilled criminal defense attorney may take when representing a client who has been arrested and charged with a crime. The sooner a criminal defense attorney can begin building his or her case, the better chance the client may have to win. This is why it is so important to contact an attorney immediately after you have been arrested.

A seasoned criminal defense attorney will examine all the evidence that the police have collected. The attorney will investigate to confirm that all evidence was legally obtained. If the evidence was improperly obtained, or if there is insufficient evidence, the attorney may be able to have the charges dismissed.

Depending on the circumstances of the case against you, your attorney may be able to have your case continued without a finding, or may negotiate a plea for a lesser charge. Rest assured, however, that your criminal defense attorney from  May Law, LLP is ready to take your case to trial if necessary, and aggressively defend against the charges  brought against you.

Our team of defense attorneys has prosecution experience.   The trial skills gained as a prosecutor enables our attorneys to anticipate many of the strategies that the prosecutor may try to use against you in your case.
