How Long It Takes to Resolve a Criminal Case in Lancaster

How Long Will It Take to Resolve Your Criminal Case in the Lancaster Courthouse?

This is a good question because most people are very scared when they have a criminal case in Lancaster.  I can tell you this from experience — and I've been doing this a long time — Lancaster actually tries to move their cases very quickly.

I think part of the reason for that is that they have a huge jurisdiction to cover, so they have a lot of cases.  If they don't move them quickly, they put themselves in a position where they will not be able to handle all their cases in an effective manner.

So, when you hire your criminal defense attorney to handle your Lancaster criminal case, realize the case is likely going to move very quickly, so obviously you want your attorney prepared.  You want to give your attorney all the information you can related to your case so that you're in the best position to be able to defend yourself as the case rapidly moves through the criminal justice system.

Lawyer Who Knows the Prosecutors and Judges

Over the course of the last 26 years, I've handled thousands of criminal cases in the Lancaster courthouse, so I think I have a pretty good feel for how the courthouse is going to handle criminal matters. I know the step by step process in a Lancaster criminal case and the history of the court.

You're probably best served to find somebody who knows the courthouse, knows how the prosecutors and judges handle the cases.  What I usually do when we're talking about how quickly your case is going to go through the court system, is we will meet before the case is even filed if that's possible.

We will get our game plan together — that way when the case is filed, we know exactly what to do, we know what moves the prosecutors are going to make so we can be there to counter those moves and make sure that your rights are protected.

Because if we don't pull out all the stops from the beginning, we put ourselves in the position where we're going to be reacting to what the prosecutor do and sometimes you make mistakes when you have to react like that.

Whereas, I think it's a much better strategy that we already know exactly how we want to handle your criminal case in the Lancaster courthouse and we already know what the game plan is going to be as the prosecutors begin to make moves.  We're going to be prepared for those moves and we will make counter moves that are obviously in your best interest.

So, if you have a case in the Lancaster courthouse, I encourage you to pick up the phone.  Make the call.  Ask to speak to Ron Hedding.  I've been doing this a long time.  I feel very confident that I can help you make the right decisions as it relates to your criminal case.

I can put you in the best position to get the best result, protect your rights, your freedom, your reputation and your liberty.  If your case needs to move quickly we will be prepared to do that and sometimes we may want to slow the case down if that appears to be in your best interest.
