No matter what charges you are facing, it is CRUCIAL you have an experienced criminal defense attorney at the Lake of the Ozarks to represent you, but how do you go about choosing the right criminal defense lawyer. Deputy and Mizell is here to give you a few attributes to look for in the right criminal defense lawyer for you. For a free consultation with our Lake of the Ozarks criminal defense attorneys, call 573-346-9990. Each state deems its own definitions of what a crime is and what the punishments for them are, making criminal law extremely complex. The average person will not have an understanding of criminal law or the criminal justice process. That is why it is critical for those charged with committing a crime to obtain professional representation during criminal proceedings. Contact Deputy & Mizell for a free consultation. 1.GOOD DECISION-MAKING SKILLS When you are facing serious criminal charges, you will need someone who knows how to make good decision based on many years of experience and facts to represent you. Our criminal defense attorneys will analyze your case and decide which avenue to take. In some cases, we have convinced the court to completely drop charges against our clients based on insufficient evidence or improper procedure. For example, we may be able to show that a police officer did not have a compelling reason to believe you may have committed a crime (probable cause). If we can prove the officer had no probable cause to investigate the alleged crime scene and make an arrest, the charges against you may be dropped before the trial even begins.
2.EXPERT NEGOTIATOR Negotiation can be key in a criminal defense case. Having an expert negotiator on your side may just change your life. Whether it’s persuading the court to reduce your bail or waive it all together, or entering into a plea bargain with the prosecution, our team will negotiate on your behalf. If we decide a plea bargain is the best avenue to pursue, our compassionate criminal defense lawyers will work towards arranging a reduced punishment or sentencing. In a criminal trial, we assist with jury selection, provide opening statements, and question witnesses with the goal of debunking the prosecutor’s case.
3.EXPERIENCE Experience matters when it comes to choosing a criminal defense lawyer. These are serious waters you are chartering into, so having an attorney who has been there before and defended many people before you can really help. Our experienced criminal defense lawyers are dedicated to fighting for our clients — no matter what the situation is. Our comprehensive understanding of criminal cases from both sides allows us to effectively build your defense strategy based on the case’s strengths and weaknesses.
