Litigation TacticsOur criminal defense attorneys employ a set of carefully developed strategies that enable them to win cases – or achieve the most favorable resolution. For example:
We Prepare – We prepare every case as if it’s going to be tried – even if a negotiated resolution is a strong possibility. This tactic puts you in the most favorable position whether the case is resolved or tried.
We’re Pragmatic – If we determine that fighting is the best route – we’re tenacious. If we determine that the most effective strategy is to negotiate a settlement – we’re accommodating. Our flexibility is our strength.
We Leverage Our Reputation – We have a stellar reputation in the courtroom, which we use as a tool to achieve the best possible results for our clients.
We Project Confidence – We’re seasoned veterans and have represented clients in the most complex and high-profile cases.
