What Can A Sex Crimes Defense Attorney Do For Me?
We can advise you on how to respond and begin your defense effort. In a number of cases, our firm has been able to prevent charges from being filed by presenting evidence to the police or prosecutor. This is the best solution because you are spared the stigma of a criminal sex charge. It is, however, only an option if you contact a lawyer early in your case.
If a charge cannot be avoided, we will aggressively represent you. We will work to build a strong case designed to protect your rights, preserve your freedom, and get the best outcome available in your case. When necessary, we take sex crime cases to trial.
We will analyze every aspect of the alleged event. We will examine the motivations of the complainant and the forensic evidence. When it helps your case, we can call in experts in DNA, physical evidence, and other disciplines.
