CRIMINAL LAW | DEFENSE REPRESENTATION
If you need aggressive representation for a crime you are accused of, contact us for a free consultation to see what we can do to protect your rights. The important question is what can be done to best defend your case and get the best possible resolution, not if you did or did not commit a crime.
The essence of criminal defense is to have in place measures that protect every individual’s rights in our society and make sure that government entities do not violate a person’s constitutional or legal rights under the operation of law.
At Daley Law, we work strenuously and aggressively to protect our clients’ rights, explore every opportunity, discover all the facts, and understand the needs and outlook of the prosecutor, the judge, and jury as we pursue fair treatment and the right outcomes in a Court of Law.
Criminal law is not always only about whether or not a crime was committed. Sometimes there are valid defenses in a criminal proceeding, various approaches to protect a defendant’s rights, and information designed to attack the state’s case. If you are facing petty criminal charges, you may not believe it is necessary to hire an attorney. However, legal representation can help protect your rights if, for example, a possible processing and/or court procedure misstep were to affect your case. When facing criminal prosecution, it is extremely important to know your rights and your options because there are many ramifications. Charges and convictions can follow you and affect other areas of your life, including your access to credit, housing, education, and employment. An experienced attorney can help protect your rights, your freedom, and your reputation.
