Helping You With a Plea Agreement

In cases where the evidence is overwhelming, you may feel a plea agreement is in your best interests. However, even a plea agreement requires the skill and knowledge of a dedicated criminal defense lawyer.

Our attorneys know how much work needs to be done to negotiate an appropriate plea. We always enter plea negotiations fully prepared to go to trial. We will know what charges apply in your case. We will work to minimize the effect of the various sentencing guidelines on your charges to reduce your penalties and your jail time.

Sentencing Mitigation

Two people who have committed the same offense, with the same background, could end up with drastically different sentences. You could end up doing more time or facing stiffer penalties if the court is not presented with all of the possible mitigating factors.

With each criminal case that reaches the sentencing phase, our attorneys spend an enormous amount of time working on a persuasive and powerful sentencing memorandum. This memorandum details for the court all of the mitigating factors, including:

  • Good deeds
  • Lack of a prior criminal history
  • Community service or charitable acts
  • Age and background of the defendant
