Help from a Board-Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer
According to the fifth amendment, no person may be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. What that means for you, if you have been charged with a crime, is that you have the right to go through various legal procedures before a final judgment is made in your case. Many cases can be settled out of court through a plea bargain. Others may require taking the matter to court. When going before a judge and jury, it is important to have a skilled legal advocate who can present a compelling case on your behalf.

The Prosecution’s Burden of Proof
In any given criminal case, an offender has been accused of violating one or more state or federal laws. In some cases, the allegations may fall under both state and federal jurisdiction. Regardless of whether a crime is being charged at the state or federal level, one thing remains constant – the prosecution team must prove that you committed the alleged offense beyond a reasonable doubt. The case they bring against the defendant must have sufficient evidence to convince a judge or jury that he or she committed the crime.
The defendant does not have to sit back and do nothing as the evidence is being presented against them but rather can choose to challenge the accusations. The defense strategy involves both identifying and attacking weaknesses in the prosecution’s arguments, as well as presenting any evidence that proves the defendant could not have committed the offense.
Prosecutors typically have many years of experience and build strong cases against the defendant. This often leads to innocent people being sentenced for a crime they did not commit. Fortunately, you do not have to fight against the prosecution alone. You have the right to legal representation. The law firm you choose to work with can make a difference in your case. You will want to hire someone who understands the legal processes and knows how to build a winning case.
Begin Developing Your Defense Today
The process of defending against your charges begins with the discovery phase. During this step, the prosecution will disclose all the evidence they have against you. When you hire our legal team, we begin by thoroughly reviewing the evidence as well as the methods used to obtain that evidence. By identifying and exposing any missing pieces in their arguments and any actions that violated your rights, we weaken their case to the point that it will not stand up during your trial. Contact our Toledo Trial litigation lawyers today.
If your case must be resolved at court, call our Toledo trial litigation attorneys at (419) 597-5849 for the aggressive representation you require.
