Our El Paso County defense attorneys will advocate for you throughout each stage of the criminal justice process, fighting for the best outcomes for you at every point. Everyone deserves a fair trial, and just as the prosecution will do everything in their power to establish your guilt, you deserve a defense attorney who will do all they can within the bounds of the law to prove your innocence and/or put the burden of proof on the prosecution.
There are many different stages of the criminal justice process where having our attorneys on your side can hugely benefit your situation, including:
Arrest Procedure and Evidence:
Our attorneys will ensure that the proper legal procedure was followed in your arrest, and that sufficient evidence exists to justify your arrest and charge. If the arrest was unlawful or insufficient evidence exists, we will argue for your case to be dismissed.
Before trial, the prosecution and defense attorneys can negotiate a potential plea deal, usually resulting in a lesser punishment for the defendant in exchange for them pleading guilty before the trial. If you do wish to plead guilty, we will aggressively negotiate any plea deal and identify how this deal compares to your chances if the case progresses to trial.
If the case proceeds to trial, a skilled lawyer can be the difference between a guilty or not-guilty verdict. False allegations are unfortunately common in this area of law, and without proper representation, even an innocent person can end up being found guilty on the available evidence.
We will present your defense, counter any arguments from the prosecution, and challenge the validity of their evidence. We diligently investigate all the available evidence and identify flaws in the prosecution’s arguments and areas of strength in your case, to highlight these to the jury.
If you choose to plead guilty or are found guilty, we can argue based on mitigating factors in your circumstances for your sentence to be reduced. We have an impressive track record of gaining reduced sentences for our clients across a range of different matters.
Being accused of a sex crime is an extremely stressful, emotional time in a person’s life. Our compassionate, non-judgmental team is here to help you navigate through the criminal justice process, and most importantly, to fight for you.
