If you’re arrested for a crime, chances are you have some questions about what the next steps should be. You might be confused by the potential consequences you could face. You might feel pressure from authorities to take actions that you may not fully understand. In this atmosphere of uncertainty and doubt, it is important that you have someone on your side who can help you make the right choices.
Whether you are facing a felony charge or traffic offense, our attorneys will vigorously defend you. The prosecutors of the case are not going to be happy with our results.
At Haskell & Zimmerman, we fight aggressively to protect your rights and interests. We examine every element of the government’s case against you, challenging evidence and seeking out inconsistencies in opposing testimony. Before you can be convicted, the government needs to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt – if it cannot meet this standard, we will take the steps necessary to have the case dismissed.
Sometimes the job of a criminal defense lawyer is not to prove their client’s innocence but rather minimize the negative effects that a conviction will have on the client’s life. If we negotiate a plea bargain, our attorneys will do everything in their power to protect your rights and advance your interests. Often times, we can advocate for an alternative or lesser sentence which avoids the more severe consequences.
