Due Process

Under the United States system of justice, a person charged in a criminal case is considered not guilty until proven guilty and defendants are afforded due process of law in all proceedings against them. By “due process,” the law refers to such things as the right to an attorney, a reasonable notice of proceedings, and fair hearings and fair trials when a defendant is facing significant potential consequences, such as prison.

Criminal cases, of course, begin with the commission of a crime, and the police investigation that follows it. Once the police believe they have gathered enough evidence and have a suspect, that person is arrested, and is either charged or turned loose. Those who are charged typically face a series of court appearances before a trial, such as an arraignment and preliminary hearing, at which the facts of the case are reviewed, and the prosecutors must show their evidence against the accused. We are here to protect you and make sure that the prosecution must provide adequate proof for your charges.

Plea Bargains

In some cases, it might be sensible to agree to a plea bargain. This is a negotiation between us and the prosecution, with the agreement of the Defendant and the Judge. The defendant usually enters a plea of guilty, sometimes to a lesser charge, in exchange for a reduced sentence with a recommendation for leniency. One of the reasons that plea bargains are used is to reduce the caseload on an overburdened judicial system. We will help you determine if a plea bargain is the best choice for you and if so, negotiate it on your behalf.
