#1 - You Don't (Nor Can You Be Expected) To Know The Ins And Outs Of The Criminal Court
Criminal law is incredibly complex. There are rules and procedures that govern almost every aspect of criminal cases, from how evidence of an alleged crime is collected to how you should address the court. It is unrealistic to expect a person charged with a crime to be able to successfully navigate his or her criminal case without the representation of an experienced criminal defense attorney.
#2 - We Can Help You Carefully Examine The Prosecutor's Evidence
As mentioned above, there are very specific rules and procedures that govern how evidence should (and should not) be collected at the law enforcement level. Just because the prosecutor brings evidence to the table does not mean it is admissible in court to be used against you. Our skilled legal team will work hard to do our own investigation of how the evidence was collected, test the strength of that evidence, and prevent the evidence from being used against you whenever possible.
#3 - We May Be Able To Get You An Alternate Sentence
Even if evidence that you committed a crime is admissible in court, you may not have to suffer the full range of penalties or punishments the prosecutor asks for. Depending on your unique situation, your criminal defense attorney may be able to help you get a lesser charge and a lesser sentence, such as community service or a rehabilitation program in lieu of extended jail time.
#4 - We Can Help Secure Your Witness Testimony
Witnesses can be an absolutely crucial component of the trial process, and securing their participation so the Judge can hear their testimony can have a major impact on the outcome of your case. At O'Donnell Law Center, we have the knowledge and experience needed to to know what witnesses are crucial to your defense and how to get them on the witness stand to testify on your behalf.
#5 - Evidence Cannot Always Be Trusted
While everyone who testifies in court swears to speak "the truth and nothing but the truth," unfortunately, not every witness (nor piece of evidence presented) can be trusted. Our Missouri criminal defense attorney may be able to help identify when false or inaccurate evidence is being used against you.
