How Our Criminal Defense Lawyers can Help
No criminal defense lawyer can promise you an acquittal or a favorable plea bargain; making such guarantees is unethical. However, the nature of the legal system is such that prosecuting attorneys often have enormous advantages over defendants. Many of those accused of crimes lack the resources to hire competent legal representation – and because district attorneys possess significant leverage over defendants, many defendants end up negotiating away their rights and signing onto plea bargains that will haunt them for years.
The Cochran Firm’s criminal defense attorneys even the scales. We won’t be intimidated by the prosecution. We will investigate your case and find the flaws in the state’s theories, find witnesses and arrange expert testimony on your behalf, and do everything possible to achieve preferred outcomes.
Of course, the reality is that many criminal cases are handled outside the courtroom. Plea negotiations are where the skill of your defense attorney will truly come into play. The Cochran Firm’s criminal defense lawyers will be your champion in these negotiations and make sure your rights are defended and interests represented.
