It is our job to win for you; get the case dismissed if we can, or try the case and obtain a Not Guilty verdict if we must. Probation and Deferred Adjudication are not winning.

First, we meet with you and thoroughly discuss the facts of your case, the charges pending against you and the basic range of typical outcomes. If an outright Motion to Dismiss is available according to Law, we will push that forward. Second, we go and read the State’s file, paying particular attention to their production of evidence pursuant to the Michael Morton Act, and make a Motion to preserve exculpatory evidence. Third, we evaluate the state’s case against you, and make any Motions to Suppress any evidence which may have been illegally obtained. Fourth, if they persist with their suit, we prepare for trial. Settling isn’t Fighting.
We go into the process looking to take, not give; to WIN, not settle. We are ethically prohibited from making a guarantee of success. It is human nature to want to hear that “all will definitely be well”, but no one can truly make such a guarantee. There are simply too many variables, and hearing it should set off alarm bells.
a) staunch determination to win for you,
b) vast knowledge of the law, and
c) extensive experience in court, to best advantage.
Non-Disclosure (or “Sealing of the Record” in street parlance)
Our criminal defense attorney offers petitions for non-disclosure. They limit the disclosure of arrests and other outcomes to the public and information gathering services working for private employers. This is only available to certain defendants, and we discuss with you the particulars of your case to find out if you will benefit from this.
