A Proactive Approach
Our philosophy when it comes to representing our clients is to take an aggressive and proactive approach. We don’t wait until the court date or for the other side to make the first move. We start working for you the moment we take on your case. We believe that the most critical window to build your defense may be the first few days after your arrest. We begin our work even if you are only under investigation and no formal charges have been filed.
By doing so, we get a jumpstart and an edge when it comes to fighting the charges or having the ability to prevent charges from being filed. We have our own team of capable investigators who will gather evidence to help bolster your position. Remember, the police and prosecution work to build a case against you. They are not your side and you cannot rely on the government to help your case.
