When people are accused of a crime, they face the terrible possibility of going to jail. Our attorneys can represent you if you are charged with a crime. They will negotiate with prosecutors and can often arrange for reduced charges or lesser sentencing. Our criminal defense lawyers do much more than simply question witnesses in court. Our attorneys at Banyon Fette Law will:
- Formulate sentencing programs tailored to your specific needs, often helping your avoid future brushes with the justice system.
- Provide you with a reality check, a knowledgeable, objective perspective on their situation and what is likely to happen should your case go to trial. This perspective is vital for you, the defendant on trying to decide whether to accept a prosecutor's offered "plea bargain".
- Our attorneys are competent with the important legal rules because many criminal law rules are hidden away in court interpretations of federal and state constitutions.
- The attorney at our office are familiar with local court customs and procedures that aren't written down anywhere (for example, our lawyer's know which prosecutor has the "real" authority to settle a case, and what kinds of arguments are likely to appeal to that prosecutor).
- They understand the possible "hidden costs" of pleading guilty which a self-represented person might never think about.
- They will be dedicated and spend crucial time on your case. They will also gather information from prosecution witnesses if needed. If applicable, they will hire and manage investigators, who may be able to believably impeach (contradict) prosecution witnesses who embellish or change their stories at trial.
