Plan your defense based on the type of charges you are facing
Being charged with any crime is a difficult situation that you might find yourself in at some point in life. When this happens, you need to learn as much as you can about the allegations that you are facing. The type of criminal act you are charged with can have a big impact on how you handle your defense strategy.
You wouldn’t make the same defense claims for a violent crime as you would for a petty theft. This is because the criteria for each crime is considerably different.
We know that you might need to know what options you have for the defense strategy that you might use for your case. When we are going over options with you, we need to think about the specific circumstances of your case so that we can determine how to proceed with the defense plan.
There are some specific points that we have to consider, including how the situation might be rectified. We wouldn’t handle the defense for a plea deal in the same way as we would handle preparing your case for trial. We have to think about the parties who are going to hear the points that we have to raise when we are deciding what we are going to do.
You also have to think about where you can introduce doubt into the mind of each person who is hearing your case. If your case goes to a jury trial, the more doubt you raise, the more likely that jurors wouldn’t be able to think beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the crimes.
