Experienced Help With Criminal Defense
Being convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony is a serious matter. A criminal conviction can result in prison time, hefty fees, loss of current and future employment, and a permanent criminal record. If you are charged with a crime, it is always wise to hire an experienced criminal defense law firm.
A Strong Criminal Defense Strategy
Even if you are only suspected of a crime, it is essential to retain legal counsel. Law enforcement will want to question you. As the Miranda warning states, anything you say can (and will) be used against you in a court of law. If you speak with the police, you should only do it while represented by an attorney.
At The Law Offices of Watson and Watson, our attorneys can help you with a range of criminal charges, including:
- Drug possession
- Violent crimes
We are known for our attention to detail when it comes to developing a strong criminal defense strategy on behalf of our clients.
When necessary, we perform a crime scene investigation, acquire witness statements, uncover hidden witnesses, speak with law enforcement, review ballistics reports, evaluate DNA evidence, and hire their own expert witnesses to dispute the prosecution’s expert witnesses.
At the same time, we let clients know their options. If you face compelling evidence, we explain your options for a plea bargain and helps you choose the best one.
We have a proven track record of success in defending against and otherwise managing criminal charges. Our successes include dismissal of charges, reduction in charges, parole instead of prison, and reduced sentencing.
The Appeal Process
Even with a strong criminal defense strategy, jury verdicts can be unpredictable. If the verdict is unfavorable, when possible, we will file an appeal. The appellate process is different from the proceeding in a trial court. Our attorneys at The Law Offices of Watson and Watson are experienced with this process and know how to build a compelling case for an appellate court.
From arraignment and pretrial to trial and post-trial, we work hard on behalf of our clients. Let us put our experience to work for you.
