Analyzing Your Case

Completely understanding your case is a necessary first step in preparing your defense. During our initial consultation, I will take the time with you to truly understand your unique situation.

Your background

You are unique. Understanding your personal situation, past history, physical condition, and a host of other factors will help us prepare your defense.  

The events leading to the allegation
What took place in the days, weeks, or even years leading up to your arrest ? Who were you with? Where? Why?  Even small, seemingly insignificant details may provide crucial evidence in your case.

The police

Does the police report accurately describe the incident leading to your arrest? Did the police conduct a thorough, unbiased investigation?  Did the police obey the Constitution and their own policy and procedure in your case?  We will scrutinize your case looking for illegal police actions, inadequate investigation, and inaccurate reporting.

The Arrest

Did the officer tell you that you were under arrest? At what point? Were you handcuffed? When? Did police search you? When? Did you sit in a patrol car? When? Were you taken to a police station or jail? The police are limited by law in what they can do and when, and the case may be dismissed when the police violate your rights.
