What can a skilled criminal defense team do to help their clients solve the problem of being charged with a crime? What does a criminal defense attorney do?
Client Intake and Strategy Outline
Our clients sit down with Attorney Speredelozzi for an intake interview. He will get to know you and your side of the case. He will discuss the facts of the case, any mitigating factors that show you deserve leniency, and case strategy. Attorney Speredelozzi will also answer all your questions regarding court procedure, the law, the charges, and the potential outcomes of the case.
Good people get charged with crimes. Our responsibility is to gather all information that shows you are a good and responsible person and present it to the court and prosecution. This evidence is called mitigating evidence. Our team will assist you in making a mitigation packet for use in negotiating the case. The mitigation packet includes any and all information that tends to show you deserve leniency for the charges. A few examples are character letters, grades, employment records, military records, proof of remedial measures taken (e.g., addiction treatment or payment of restitution to a victim).
Case Analysis and Negotiation Memorandum
The biggest benefit of hiring a skilled defense team is to get the case analyzed for all legal and factual issues. Our team obtains all of the government’s evidence in the case and analyzes it. This evidence typically consists of police reports, witness statements, business records, pictures, video, physical evidence, forensic analysis and expert opinions. Our team then drafts a written Case Analysis and Negotiation Memorandum containing a summary of the pertinent facts, evidence, witnesses and a discussion of the legal defenses and case strategy for your review.
Legal Counsel and Advice
Your attorney’s most important job is to make sure you understand the case and can make informed rational decisions as your case moves through the system. In every case, our attorney will advise and educate you on the intricacies of the case including what the facts are, what the law says, and what legal tactics can be employed. Our attorney will also counsel you on whether additional services may benefit your case (e.g., private investigation, forensic analysis, retest of physical evidence, motions, jury trial).
Representation at all Court Appearances and Negotiation
We are your voice in the courtroom. We advocate your position during negotiations with the judge and prosecutor from arraignment through sentencing. During the case, our attorney is armed with a detailed analysis (Case Analysis and Negotiation Memorandum), a packet of documents that show the court and prosecutor that you are a good person (Mitigation Packet), and a defense plan that will emphasize pro-defense legal theories. These tools give your attorney the leverage needed to achieve your goals, whether it’s a dismissal or a substantial reduction in charges and penalties.
