Innovative Defenses Win Cases
Extraordinary results require extraordinary efforts at each stage of the case. We work with seasoned private investigators and the top experts while still maintaining affordable fees and costs.
We can help you decide on the best way to resolve your case. If you were falsely accused, the best result is getting the charges dropped by the prosecutor or dismissed by the trial court.
Depending on how the case resolves, you might be eligible to quickly seal or expunge the criminal record history and mug shot so that it disappears from the public view.
Our attorneys take a scholarly approach to litigating pre-trial motions. When it comes to a motion hearing or trial, we come prepared. We know that good things happen when criminal defense attorneys file pre-file motions including:
- motions to suppress evidence illegally obtained;
- motions to exclude irrelevant or prejudicial evidence; or
- motions to dismiss because of insufficient evidence.
Even if the court doesn’t grant the pre-trial motion, the defense attorney gains valuable information about the prosecutor’s case during the hearing. Information from the motion hearing can be used to win the case at trial or negotiate a better pre-trial settlement.
Representing Professionals Accused of a Crime
Many of our clients have no prior criminal record and never imagined being on the wrong side of the law. The stakes are even higher for certain types of professionals, including:
- health-care professionals;
- teachers and certified educators;
- attorneys and students in law school;
- members of the military; and
- law enforcement officers.
We take a full-service approach to criminal defense while addressing the collateral consequences that might occur because of the accusation.
When the stakes are high, find an experienced criminal justice attorney at Sammis Law Firm to help you fight the charges.
We understand that your livelihood, liberty, and good name are on the line after an accusation of criminal wrongdoing. Contact Sammis Law Firm, P.A., for a free immediate consultation over the phone or in the office.
