Initial Consultation: The defense lawyer meets with the client and talks about the case during an initial office consultation.
Every case is different. Each client is unique.
An experienced criminal defense attorney learns everything he can about the case from the client, and his client’s background, in order to successfully represent the client in court.
HOW THE DEFENSE LAWYER HELPS HIS CLIENT IN COURT
Most criminal cases in court are resolved by way of a plea bargain.
Plea Bargain: A plea bargain is an agreement between the client, the defense attorney, the prosecutor and the judge. The goal is to eliminate or reduce the charges, avoid time in jail, reduce the fines, and provide other favorable terms.
Strategies: To get an excellent plea bargain, the criminal defense attorney looks for the strengths of his client’s case, and the weaknesses of the prosecution’s case.
Mr. Pflaum accomplishes this by analyzing the case, reviewing the arrest reports, viewing diagrams of the area of detention and arrest, experts reports, crime lab analysis results, witness statements, video and surveillance tapes, phone records, financial records, bank statements, and any other evidence the police rely on.
He then makes a presentation to the judge and the prosecutor to accomplish a plea bargain that benefits the client.
If the plea bargain offer is accepted by the client and his defense attorney, the case goes to the next court date for sentencing.
If the plea bargain is not accepted, the client and the defense attorney continue to aggressively defend the case.
Jury Trial: For cases that cannot be, or should not be, settled by way of a plea bargain, attorney Pflaum is ready to prepare for and go to jury trial and get the best results possible for his client.
Defenses: The best defense at trial will depend on the facts and evidence of the case.
The most common defenses are:
- no criminal intent
- insufficiency of the evidence
- no identification of the defendant
- lack of motive
- no proof of actual loss
- no proof that defendant committed a fraudulent act
