If you are charged with a crime, you are up against the unlimited resources of the US government, and those resources will be brought to bear against you.
The idea that the US justice system is stacked in favor of the defendant is false. You will often hear it said that our system is set up to let 10 guilty men go free rather than convict a single innocent man, but nothing could be further from the truth.
The entire system is geared to successfully prosecute defendants. 97% of all criminal defendants end up convicted. If you are facing criminal charges, guilty or innocent, you are facing a serious challenge.
Maximize your chances of successfully defending a criminal charge by:
- Selecting the right attorney
- Understanding the criminal process
- Monitoring your attorney’s performance
- Tracking the progress of your case
