Handling Communications Between You and the AuthoritiesDuring your accusations, police and other law enforcement are using inconsistent information to investigate. While they are doing their jobs, it often impedes upon your rights or positions you to answer questions that can later be used against you. We handle information exchange and questioning on your behalf, giving you the best possible chance of a favorable outcome. While authorities have the right and duty to investigate crimes, it mustn’t come at your personal expense. Accusations without evidence shouldn’t interfere with or impede upon your daily life until your appearance in a court of law is requested. We’re here every step of the way to protect your rights, and maintain a clear line of communication with authorities regarding this matter.
Managing Your Pre-Trial MotionsThese appear long before an arraignment or trial. Pre-trial motions are where your St. Augustine criminal defense attorney can make the argument to eliminate or minimize bail, and dismiss evidence that doesn’t pertain to the specific accusations. Prosecutors are there to find every possible shred of evidence that may implicate your involvement in a crime. These pieces of evidence are commonly inconsistent with the charges.
Understanding Plea BargainingBefore your charges ever reach a jury of your peers, you may have the option to accept a plea bargain in exchange for a mitigated sentence. Plea bargains can also help to keep serious charges off of your criminal record, thereby making your life easier after this situation has been dealt with. We will strategically approach the proposition of creating a plea bargain depending on the specifics of your case. It takes an experienced team to properly pose an argument that a plea bargain should be discussed before reaching trial. A plea bargain could be the difference between serving time, and community service: it is critical that these are handled by an experience St. Augustine criminal defense attorney. Self-representation has an extremely low chance of achieving a plea bargain.
Managing Your ArraignmentDuring your arraignment, a decision must be made. Charges are read aloud for the court by the prosecution, and you must plead your case. Under these circumstances, it is important to have professional legal counsel in your corner. Our St. Augustine criminal defense lawyers will fight for your rights and your freedom, challenging everything to ensure you are given a completely fair legal process.
