Getting a good result, getting a case dropped and getting a not guilty verdict is no accident. It takes hard work, thorough investigation, knowing who to call, knowing what to say, knowing how to negotiate and most of all, knowing how to actually try a criminal case. Prosecutors have to know and respect your word, your trial skills and your character. Judges have to know of your reputation for credibility and honesty. You have to be respected as a worthy adversary to get a good offers. Only if the prosecutor knows he is in for a fight ,against a skilled trial lawyer, who is not afraid to try the case, will he make a reasonable offer. Some lawyers are good at advertising, and making promises, and telling you what you want to hear. At our firm we back up what we have to say with knowledge, and actual courtroom experience. Do not fall for the lawyer that tells you what you want to hear. Honesty matters.
In life, there are three types people. There are those that don't know what happened. There are those that watch it happen and those that make it happen. At our criminal defense firm, our goal is to make things happen. Dragging cases out for years is not in your best interest. A pending criminal charge is like a bad tooth. You have to deal with it. You cannot get on with your life until it is over. We want to bring your case to a successful conclusion so you can get on with your life.
You have to have walked in the other man's shoes. Both Sean O'Halloran and Peter Aiken were former prosecutors and know the ins and outs of being a prosecutor. What makes them different is that they both have defended cases for decades. They have seen it from both sides. Lots of lawyers brag about being a former prosecutor and winning cases, but how many have actually defended criminal cases for decades. There is no substitute for Courtroom experience as a defense lawyer. We have been in front of hostile judges, dealt with unreasonable prosecutors, lying witnesses, and bad cops and we walk the walk. Talk and empty promises is not our thing. Do your homework and check out our backgrounds and history.
