Raising doubt is crucial in criminal justice cases

On Behalf of | Nov 4, 2016 | Criminal Defense

Every criminal case has certain elements that must be present. Last week, we discussed how a drunk driving case has to be based on a legal stop. This is only one example of how the circumstances of a case can impact the charges that you face.

When we work on your defense, we have to look into what led up to your facing charges. If there was evidence collected, we have to find out if it was collected in a legal manner. We also have to determine if proper procedures were followed during collection. As the evidence moves through the chain of custody, we have to make sure that it is handled properly. If there was testing done, we have to look into the method used so that we can find out if it was properly tested.

We know that you might not know what to look for when evaluating evidence. We are familiar with reviewing evidence and put this extensive familiarity to good use. We will work hard to make sure that if there is a chance that the validity of evidence could be questioned, we will do so.

In criminal justice cases, the prosecution brings up points that they claim proves you did the act of which you are accused. Our job is to make the jury think twice about these points. The goal is to introduce doubt so that the condition of “beyond a reasonable doubt” isn’t met in your case.

It is important for you to allow ample time for us to go over things with a fine-tooth comb. We want to help you build the strongest defense possible.
