Too often those who are caught up in the criminal justice system become victims of what I call Ramrod Justice. Public Defenders are overworked and Judges who are often jaded as file after file blends together. Clients are often urged to “take the plea” having know idea what they are pleading to or why they should take a plea bargain. I find this current state of affairs personally offensive. While I am not against plea bargains as they are often a beneficial way to end a case, I take pride in the fact that I never tell clients what they should or should not do. My role is that of Counselor, that means I am an advisor, no more, no less. I use my expertise to put you in the best position possible to have the case dismissed outright, negotiate a plea, or take the case to trial. The decision whether or not to take a plea or take a case to trial is yours alone. I give you my opinion as to the chance for success for each them respect the decision you make.
