Why You Need an Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney
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.
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.
Whether it’s persuading the court to reduce your bail or waive it altogether, 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.
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.
We are prepared to defend you against any type of criminal law matter, including the following:
- Driving While Intoxicated (DWI/DUI)
- Boating While Intoxicated (BWI/BUI)
