Defense in Criminal Cases

If you have been accused of committing a criminal offense, it is strongly advised that you seek legal assistance from an experienced criminal defense lawyer in Eastlake. You will need an attorney to assess the strength of the prosecution’s case so that the appropriate defense can be prepared. Effective
criminal defense requires an understanding of both criminal law and courtroom procedures. Successful defenders will also have experience representing clients in a wide variety of misdemeanor, felony and federal offenses. While many first-time misdemeanors can result in probation or deferred sentencing, a person with a criminal past can end up facing extremely harsh sentencing if they are found guilty of any new charges. This can include life imprisonment if offense qualifies as a third strike under the state’s Three Strikes law.

Choose Powerful Legal Advocacy

There are serious consequences for committing any type of offense that involves violence. Most violent crime cases will be charged as a felony, and will result in incarceration in a state prison if there is a guilty verdict. This includes incidents involving a deadly weapon even if the weapon wasn’t used. Building a tough defense is essential in any type of criminal case due to the penalties that can result from a conviction, such as jail time and steep fines. Attorney Marc S. Kohnen is a highly qualified litigator that will fight to protect your rights and freedom. He will look for flaws in the prosecution’s case that can be used to pursue reduced charges or a case dismissal, and can be depended on for vigorous representation.
