The Strategy In El Monte Criminal Courthouse
Your first strategy should be to find a savvy criminal defense attorney that knows the ins and outs of the El Monte Courthouse. Having interaction with the judges and prosecutors in this court is crucial to the best result in your criminal defense.
So once you have your attorney, the next step is to decide your strategy related to the case. If you are going to try and negotiate the case, then I will typically request that you obtain character letters and I collect information about you and your life.
This way, when I sit down to meet with the prosecutor and judge, I have your life story and I can paint a picture for them that shows them that the crime you are charged with is an aberration and will not happen again.
Negotiating With Prosecutor
Usually, the key concerns for the prosecutor and judge are to make sure that your behavior will not happen again and to protect the community from harm. If we can convince them that you will not re-offend and show them that you are not a danger to the public at large, then we are on the path to a successful resolution.
This can be done in a number of ways and of course, it depends on the facts and circumstances of your particular case. I consider it one of the most important parts of my job to meet with the client and map out exactly what facts and evidence we will bring to bear in order the achieve the result they must have.
I also believe that in this part of the process it is all important for me to be open and honest with the client about what they should really expect in their criminal case. If we are able to shoot for a reasonable target, then I believe we will have the best chance of being successful and obtaining the desired goal.
When Should You Fight Your Case In El Monte Superior Court?
It is common for clients to ask me if I think it is a good idea to fight their case. In answering this question, one of the key things I ask them to do is to fast forward ahead and imagine what a jury would do if they were presented with the evidence the police and prosecutors will bring against them.
Further, I suggest they determine whether their defense to the crime makes common sense and if they believe they would win. I give them the case law that will be applied to their circumstances and we discuss the options. We handle all types of cases, including domestic violence, theft crimes, and violent crimes.
Last, I will give them my opinion on what I think of their case and what would be necessary for the prosecutors to prove them guilty of the charged crime and what we would have to do in order to obtain a not guilty verdict.
One of the things I consider my strongest attributes as a criminal defense attorney is to help the client make the best decisions related to the facts of their case. Once the right decisions are made, then the pieces of the puzzle fit together and the client can move on with their life! Call Hedding Law Firm today!
