Why Having a Former Prosecutor Is Key
Criminal Defense Lawyer in Paulding County
When choosing a criminal defense attorney to represent you following an arrest, perhaps the most important question you should ask is, "What experience do you have with this type of case?"
An attorney with an extensive track record may make a world of difference getting you the best possible results. Consider how much you may gain by hiring a defense attorney who also has experience as a prosecutor. That is why you should contact the team at Henrickson & Sereebutra right away!
Get an Advocate Who Will Fiercely Fight in Your Favor
By hiring a former prosecutor, you can retain an advocate who has experience on both sides of the courtroom. A former prosecutor understands how cases progress from the moment of the arrest to the end of the trial and potential appeal process.
There are some of the matters former prosecutors can recognize:
- How evidence is gathered
- How all decisions affect filing charges
- How prosecutors build cases and pursue convictions
More importantly, a former prosecutor knows where to look for faults in the evidence and weaknesses in the case which may be exploited to your advantage. By working with the team at Henrickson & Sereebutra you may not only be able to avoid a conviction but could even avoid having the case go to trial altogether.
The Team Has Handled Thousands of Cases
Another important factor to consider is the volume of cases your attorney has worked on. Former prosecutors, like our firm's Paulding County criminal defense attorneys, often have extensive experience quickly evaluating cases for their strengths and weaknesses. Our team understands how to think fast on their feet in and out of the courtroom. They know that a current prosecutor's volume of work often makes it difficult or impossible to invest the same amount of time and effort in a case that a private defense attorney can, which means we are in a better position to provide strategic, one-on-one legal guidance.
Former Prosecutors Can Negotiate a Better Plea Bargain
When an exoneration or dismissal of charges is out of the question, it may become necessary to negotiate a plea bargain, such as for a reduced sentence or a lesser charge. Our former prosecutors can be an invaluable asset in this situation, and our Paulding County criminal defense attorneys know just how far the District Attorney can go in making a deal. The first offer is almost never the best arrangement available, and your attorney may be able to push further to secure better terms for you.
If you choose to work with Henrickson & Sereebutra you will have a team of former prosecutors with more than 75 years of combined experience and a track record of success on your side.
