Possible Legal Defense Strategies for Your Case
Every criminal defense case will be unique and The Law Offices of O'Toole
& Gunteski, LLC approaches them as such. However, there may be some
groundwork defense strategies that could apply to your situation. It may
also help to understand those potential options ahead of time.
Three ways that we may be able to protect you from the heavy penalties
of the law:
- Dismissing the key pieces of evidence the prosecution intends to use against
you, often by proving that your arrest or traffic stop was unlawful.
- Showing that you are a victim of mistaken identity, as many arrests are
made on hunches and loose descriptions of a suspect.
- Negotiating with the prosecution to secure a fair plea deal when a not
guilty verdict or case dismissal seems highly unlikely – we always
discuss with our clients whether or not a plea deal should be considered
before making that decision.
The strategies that are pertinent to your case could be entirely different
than the three aforementioned. It is crucial that you take the time to
sit down with Monmouth County Criminal Defense Attorney Carrie Smith to
discuss the nuances of your case, ensuring the approach she uses is personally
tailored and can be as effective as possible.
