Our experienced attorneys are committed to ensuring that your rights are protected during every phase of the legal process. We use our negotiation skills to successfully resolve many of our clients’ cases without ever needing to go to trial. To this end, we have developed a series of advanced defense strategies that we use to challenge the evidence in your case. Our attorneys always begin by reviewing the evidence to determine whether its admissibility can be challenged. If at all possible, we will seek to get the evidence thrown out in court and the charges against you dismissed.
Even if there are no suppression issues in your case, our attorneys will attempt to resolve your case so that you avoid the most serious penalties. If possible, we will negotiate with the prosecutor to reduce or potentially dismiss the charges against you. We may be able to negotiate probation or another alternative sentencing solution. In certain circumstances, we will get you admitted into a diversionary program such as the Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) program. This will depend on your prior record and the degree of the charges you face. If you qualify for a diversionary program, the charges against you could be dismissed upon successful completion of the program.
