The sooner that you call us, the sooner we can get to work on your case. Depending on what happened and the charge that you face, we might decide that a plea bargain is your best choice. For example, if the court charges you with a count of felony rape, we might plead that down to one count of misdemeanor sexual imposition.
Pleading down to a lesser charge is a good option when you find that the prosecutor has overwhelming evidence against you. While a misdemeanor will remain on your record, it won’t affect you in the same way that a felony charge would.
We often look at similar cases at the local, state and national level. This helps us find evidence that we can use to request that the court drop or reduce the charges. We will also look at the sentences given to those facing similar charges to help reduce the sentence that you face.
