Responsive Criminal Defense You Can Trust

Defendants are in a difficult position. The police department and prosecuting agency have superior resources and have been building a case against the defendant for months. Without a knowledgeable lawyer, defendants are almost guaranteed to be taken advantage of. The prosecutor will be aggressive and make it difficult to receive a good deal. If negotiations are unproductive, Eric and his colleagues are equipped to take any matter to trial in order to seek the best possible outcome.

Individuals being prosecuted face penalties ranging from small fines or community service to lengthy prison terms, or worse. The severity of the allegations and the defendant’s criminal history are two of the most important factors the prosecutor and judge use to evaluate possible resolutions to the case. If the allegations and the defendant’s criminal history are minor, the chances are high that we can quickly negotiate a fair deal for our client. However, defendants with a criminal record or who face serious allegations need to carefully examine all angles of the case and consider the best possible defenses.
