Any prosecution is only as good as the evidence that is supporting it. Law enforcement must comply with strict procedures when gathering evidence and information, and they often fail to do so. The seizure of evidence beyond the scope of a warrant, inconsistencies in the evidentiary chain of custody, and the continuation of questioning after the suspect requests an attorney are but a few of the errors made by law enforcement. Prosecutors in turn must comply with legal rules when charging and presenting such evidence in court. Prosecutors can run into trouble proving a case beyond a reasonable doubt when they lack the proper foundation to present evidence or have uncooperative witnesses. To avoid a conviction, it is essential that a defendant have the representation of an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands the errors commonly made by law enforcement and prosecutors. The attorneys at the Zolman Law Firm use the intricate rules governing the collection and presentation evidence to achieve a better outcome in your case.
Many criminal cases are resolved without a trial. Trials are a very expensive, time-consuming process, and prosecutors are no more eager to expend those resources than are defendants. In some cases, a complete dismissal of the charges may be possible. If the charges cannot be dismissed, then an experienced criminal defense attorney may negotiate with the prosecutor and see that the defendant pleads to a lesser crime or incurs a reduced sentence. No matter how your case is resolved, the criminal defense attorneys at the Zolman Law Firm will provide you with the attentive and relentless representation that is necessary to avoid a wrongful conviction and a detrimental sentence.
