How do we defend my case?
Every criminal case is a little different. While your case might have a motion issue, another case might simply proceed to trial.
For example, an aggravated battery case might rely on medical records. If the government does not produce those medical records, we will certainly file a motion to compel the production of the records. Or, in other words, a motion to compel discovery.
Burglary cases frequently don’t involve eye witnesses. Quite often, burglaries occur when the owner of the property isn’t home. Because of that, the government might have a proof problem at trial. If you’re charged based simply on circumstantial evidence, obtaining a great result for you at trial may be possible.
Other cases may involve motions challenging the search of your home, vehicle, office, or possessions. Sometimes, depending upon the result of that motion, we’re able to suppress certain evidence and compel the dismissal of your charges.
