Don't let your life be measured by your worst day
- Let it be measured by your best! -
If you’ve been charged with a crime, this has the potential to follow you around for the rest of your life, be the elephant in the room during a job interview, and a recurrent reminder of the injustice of being wrongfully accused or how you may have fell short one day in your life.
The State has its advocate - the prosecutor employed by the district attorney - and their job, unsurprisingly, is to prosecute you. It’s not to tell your story, much less bother trying to understand it. Nor is it the prosecutor’s job to ensure your constitutional rights are protected, to punish the government for violating them by dismissing your case, or to agree that you were fine to drive after having only a few drinks—the prosecutor is the state’s attorney and you need an effective advocate to be your voice and plead your case.
The prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the crime for which they are seeking to punish you. This is the highest burden faced in any case, and even higher than that required when the government is trying to take away someone’s children and place them in the foster system, but without an effective lawyer advocating for your interests and holding the State to its burden of proof, the odds remain stacked against you.
You need an advocate to hold the State to its burden of proof, either to make your case at trial or to negotiate a favorable plea deal that minimizes or eliminates the long-term effects of a criminal charge.
Whether you’ve been wrongfully accused and seek to be vindicated, know you were in the wrong place at the wrong time and merely want to minimize the punishment, or find yourself somewhere in between, we are here to fight for you and will work hard to secure the best outcome we can for you.
