Dismissing Cases, Reducing Charges & Softening Sentences

One way that we help our clients is by negotiating with prosecutors to reduce the charges or penalties. This could mean getting a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor, which can result in less jail time and fewer long-term consequences for our clients. We also work to have evidence suppressed if it was obtained illegally or in violation of our clients’ rights. Additionally, we can help our clients get into treatment programs, such as drug or alcohol rehabilitation, to help them avoid jail time altogether.
