North Dakota Criminal Defense Lawyer
Protecting Your Freedom, Finances and Future
Being charged with a crime can put your entire life on hold. It can threaten your employment, your right to live where you choose, even your freedom. My goal as your criminal defense lawyer is to protect your rights, fight the charges against you and minimize the effect the charges has on your day to day life.
The unfortunate reality is that when you are charged with a crime, the system is set up to find you guilty. The prosecutors are not searching for truth; they are searching for a high conviction rate. Without an attorney, it can be very difficult to get the judge, jury or prosecutor to truly hear your side of the story.
How a Criminal Defense Attorney Helps You
An attorney’s job is to navigate someone through the criminal defense process. There are times that involves fighting the charges because there is insufficient or questionable evidence that you did what you are being accused of. There are other times where the evidence against the accused is very strong, and the attorney’s job is to work with the prosecutor or judge to negotiate a guilty plea, either to a lesser charge or in exchange for a lightened sentence or punishment.
