In our previous post, we explained 6 key strategies that an experienced criminal defense attorney may use to help represent you in court and defend your rights. Here are 6 more strategies that can also be very effective.
- Arguing lack of probable cause: If the police did not have probable cause to arrest you, we may be able to argue that the charges should be dismissed.
- Claiming self-defense or defense of others: If you acted in self-defense or to defend others, we may be able to argue that your actions were justified and that you should not be found guilty.
- Raising issues with witness testimony: If the prosecution’s case relies heavily on witness testimony, we may try to challenge the credibility of the witnesses or raise doubts about their recollection of events.
- Seeking to exclude evidence: If the prosecution’s case relies on evidence that was obtained illegally or in violation of your constitutional rights, we may seek to have that evidence excluded from the trial.
- Seeking a mistrial: If something occurs during the trial that makes it impossible for you to receive a fair trial, we may seek a mistrial.
- Appealing the verdict: If you come to our firm after having previously been found guilty, we may be able to appeal the verdict to a higher court. This could be done if there were errors made during the trial or if we believe that the verdict was not supported by the evidence.
