How We Win

Experience facing the prosecutors who file criminal cases is the critical difference between a ‘great’ attorney and ‘good’ attorney. Understanding the motivations and strategy that the Government has for every type of criminal offense is critical to a successful defense. Each type of offense from sex crimes to fraud has special groups within the prosecutions office assigned to these case types. Our team handles all of these cases with a full appreciation for the work and complexity involved. A good defense attorney relies on outside experts and consultants to gain insight to the criminal charges.

The 40 years of experience our attorneys have gives the client access to a vast network of psychological, forensic and litigation experts that can provide insight necessary to win a case.

Experience with the Judges and Court staff who handle all criminal cases is also critical to your case being handled properly. We have seen how Judges process information or reports from experts. How a Judge can rule on a particular motion can prevent and minimize the most serious consequences of a criminal prosecution.
