Why Choose a Former Prosecutor
One of the most compelling reasons to hire a former prosecutor to represent
your case is that
I know where to look for weaknesses in the charges against you. The simple fact is that law enforcement officers do make mistakes. For
DUI arrests are made after the officer pulled the driver over without
probable cause or reasonable suspicion. This fact often goes unnoticed, allowing cases
to proceed to conviction, but I can examine your situation for such errors.
If I can expose major
faults in the evidence or in the procedures used by the investigators, I may be able to move
to have the charges against you dismissed outright. Similarly, I can conduct
an exhaustive review of the evidence to find out what the prosecutor knows - and
You are legally innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and I place the burden of proof in the case
firmly on the shoulders of the prosecutor.
San Antonio Criminal Defense Attorney on Your Side
My background includes trying hundreds of cases before juries and judges
in both state and federal courts, including cases with stakes as high
as the death penalty. With my experience working on both sides of the
courtroom, I can often anticipate the strategies that the prosecutor will
use against my client and can then prepare an effective defense to undermine
that plan of action. I know that the criminal justice system often rides
roughshod over good people, convicting innocent individuals and subjecting
citizens to harsh penalties that can follow them for the rest of their lives.
