Here to Fight for You!
Prosecutors do not offer a favorable plea agreement out of a sense of charity. Prosecutors are reasonable when they understand that a charge is not supported by evidence or where they feel uncertain about their ability to obtain a conviction at trial. However, if you are represented by a criminal defense lawyer who never takes cases to trial, the prosecution has no reason to be concerned. In short — you have no leverage.
At O’Donnell Law Group, we fully investigate the facts of each case through a thorough discovery process. We will dig into the allegations against you to try and uncover any false assumptions, contradictory information, or even evidence that can be used in your favor. Remember, just because the prosecution claims to have a strong case to incriminate you does not mean they actually do.
If we feel it is in your best interest to fight the criminal charges at trial, we are always prepared to do so. We are a trial law firm. We always begin each case from the position that we may ultimately need to argue it in front of a judge and jury. We strongly believe that clients benefit from our reputation for skilled and successful trial advocacy.
