Being charged with a crime is a serious matter that can leave one afraid, confused, and in need of help. If you are facing criminal charges, it is to your benefit to immediately seek the assistance of a Riverside criminal defense attorney. They can provide skilled legal advice and guidance in your time of need and can seek a favorable resolution in your case, such as getting charges significantly reduced or dropped altogether. Criminal cases are complex – full of nuance and detail that must be attended to if one is to reach a favorable outcome in their case.
An effective criminal defense attorney will pay close attention to, and account for, the following factors:
- The validity/legality of the procedures employed, or lack thereof, by law enforcement and the court in the case
- The legal strategy of the opposition
- The strength or weakness of the evidence/witnesses supplied by the opposition
- The specifics of the case, including the crime committed and any criminal history
- Disorderly Conduct
- Domestic Violence
- Drug Crimes
- Federal Crimes
- Felony Crimes
- Internet Crimes
- Juvenile Crimes
- Resisting Arrest
- Sex Crimes
- Unlawful Arrest
- Weapon Crimes
- Theft Crimes
- Violent Crimes
- White Collar Crimes
There is no substitute for actual trial experience. Lawyers hone their trial skills over a period of time. There is more to defending a criminal accusation than legal knowledge. A successful defense case is not only well-crafted with regard to evidence and witnesses presented in court, the ability to present a case in a persuasive manner is an element that may be the most significant factor in the final decision by a jury.
When seeking a criminal defense lawyer to defend against charges, it is well established that the most talented trial lawyers have a better record of success. The same is true of prosecutors. As with all professions, there are varying levels of ability. Those who are accused of committing a crime, whether a violent crime, sex crime, weapons crime or theft crime, are advised to search for a criminal defense attorney that has a long track record of success at trial.
Another advantage can be experience serving on the other side of the aisle – former prosecutors. Those who have a real insight into the criminal justice process often have a history serving as a criminal prosecutor. Not only does this allow the criminal lawyer to understand the various strategies that will be employed in an effort to convict, they understand fully that this is the duty of the prosecuting attorney, and how to work within the system to try to achieve a better outcome through negotiations. If the criminal case has serious flaws, such as violations of rights or a failure in some aspect of the system, whether law enforcement procedures, labs, witness issues or other opportunity, these are matters that should be exploited fully. Not all lawyers are created equal. Ensure that you have experience on your side if you are facing criminal charges.
