The police make mistakes and sometimes conduct sloppy investigations or even violate your constitutional rights. Witnesses can be mistaken about who or what they saw or may have problems remembering facts. As former prosecutors we will identify, test, and exploit the weaknesses of the State’s case to get you the best possible outcome.
