The battle between the accuser and the accused can be unfair. The accuser will have the great powers of the state behind him or her. The accused will have to battle the police, the prosecutor and all the tools of the government. In this darkest hour, the accused needs someone who will not only stand with him, but stand in front of him, protecting him and telling his story. The accused deserves to have a team that will fight against the tyrannies of the state and that will be fearless.

Hiring an attorney with trial experience is vital for all criminal cases. No one likes to lose, especially prosecutors. The jury trial is the hammer that the U.S. Constitution gives to every accused.
