What a Criminal Defense Lawyer in Chester, PA Can Do?
We Do an Independent Investigation
In addition to talking to you, we question police about the procedures they used during arrest and questioning. Our investigation also may include talking to witnesses and gathering information, like photographs, surveillance video, and past police reports. We use all of this information to build a strong defense. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we also may seek experts to testify.
We Stay in Constant Contact
Our criminal defense lawyers communicate with you often to explain any new case challenges or developments. All of our conversations are kept confidential. We work to ensure you have a clear, solid understanding of all of the possible consequences you face.
Also, we are a firm that believes defendants should have access to their discovery. We share this because we think the best defenses are built with the help of the defendants.
We Communicate for You
We talk to authorities, judges, and any other party involved in your case. Leaving the talking to us not only ensure your rights are protected, but it prevents you from slipping and saying something incriminating. Finally, once you retain a lawyer, police and prosecutors cannot speak to you without talking to us first.
Allowing us to take over the reins gives us the power we need to build a strong defense strategy that minimizes any harm to you and your family.
We Negotiate Plea Bargains
As criminal defense lawyers, we are responsible for talking with prosecutors about the case and negotiating with them plea bargains are offered. We work to secure favorable agreements that often include reductions in charges or penalties.
We Represent You at Sentencing
If you accept a plea agreement or get convicted, we will be there to request leniency based on mitigating circumstances. Mitigating circumstances do not justify certain actions or behaviors but, at sentencing, they are considered out of fairness to the defendant. Crimes committed in the heat of passion or having a history of abuse are examples of mitigating circumstances.
Count on us to discuss any factors that can help convince a judge or jury to reduce your sentence. Also, we will consider possible alternatives, if appropriate.
