ADDRESSING UNDERLYING PROBLEMS
I help guide you in your decisions while an investigation is pending.
Together we decide what you can do to improve your situation. We may
obtain professional assessments to help persuade a prosecutor to make
the right decision.
Some clients have committed crimes as a direct result of an underlying
mental illness or addiction or other condition that can be treated. I
work with my clients to identify possible factors that contributed to
their action. If we can begin treatment immediately and the client can
show progress, we can sometimes influence the prosecutor's decision
whether and what to charge, and/or the court's decision at sentencing.
