Innocent until proven guilty. Despite what the prosecutors and county attorneys may indicate, this is still the law of the land. For criminal law (and DUI cases), I help my clients review the facts, what can be proven and what can’t be proven, risks of going forward and the benefits of entering a plea.
Some of the most important work is done in assisting a clearly guilty client in obtaining a plea to a lesser offense, or assisting the client in placing himself or herself in a position to receive the least “life interfering” sentence of punishment. I listen and we make these decisions together.
