Investigations

PRESERVE EVIDENCE OF INNOCENCE

A prompt defense investigation can save an innocent person from a criminal charge.

A criminal charge can be based on as little as a person saying you have committed a crime. The police and prosecutor do not need other evidence to bring a charge. If a jury believes the person who accuses you, you are guilty.

The police often don't search for evidence that contradicts an accusation, only for evidence that supports it.

You have a right to remain silent. Anything you say will be used against you. If you try to tell the police a different version of events, the police often hear and record only what supports their version.

A prosecutor who only knows one side of the story will probably file a charge. Once a charge is filed and becomes public, damage is done -- to your reputation, to your good name, perhaps to your job, career, or relationships with friends or family.

During an investigation, my investigators locate and interview crucial witnesses immediately while memories are fresh. We preserve physical evidence that might disappear over time. I give helpful evidence to the investigating detective or to the prosecutor before they file a charge. Our defense investigation can change their perception of the accusation so no charge or a less serious charge is filed.
