Strong, Aggressive Criminal Defense in San Jose
Authorities are required to abide by very specific procedural rules when stopping you or your car, searching you, asking questions, and otherwise attempting to collect evidence. If any of these requirements are violated, your criminal defense attorney can ensure subsequent evidence is thrown out.
You are Innocent until Proven Guilty
Never forget that the burden is on prosecutors to show beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the alleged offenses. An arrest does not mean that you are guilty of anything. The criminal justice system was created to protect the rights of defendants. An aggressive criminal defense attorney will work to ensure that prosecutors actually meet that burden.
Negotiating with Prosecutors
At times, when total vindication is not practical, it may be prudent to work with prosecutors to negotiate a settlement and lessen the penalties. You may avoid jail time, fines, lengthy license suspensions deportation, and other adverse consequences. Charles Mesirow works directly with the court and prosecutors on your behalf, working to craft the best possible agreements to resolve the matter and let you move on with your life.
Make no mistake; from the moment you are stopped by authorities, evidence is being collected in an effort to convict you of a crime. That is why it is critical to have an aggressive legal professional looking out for your rights as soon as possible. Your attorney can help prevent authorities from collecting physical evidence and statements that may be used against you later.
