Enlist Our Help as Early as Possible in Your North Port Criminal Case
When it comes to developing a defense strategy for a criminal case in North Port, Florida, one of the most important factors is getting started right away. If you hire us early on, we can go to work on your case immediately. It is our goal to intervene and stop the prosecution before they formalize the charges against you.
If we can convince the state attorney not to press charges, your criminal record remains clean, and you face no legal consequences, at which time we may be able to have your record expunged. This is the best possible outcome next to avoiding allegations in the first place.
Other defense strategies that might give you a more favorable outcome in your case include:
- Presenting evidence that gets the case against you dropped
- Taking your case to trial and arguing your innocence
- Working out a plea deal, so you face reduced charges and lighter consequences
- Negotiating a reduced or probated sentence
- Taking other steps to mitigate the effects a conviction could have on your future
