There is an inequality of power and material resources in the criminal justice system. The government has a large staff of lawyers, police and agents, sophisticated crime labs and experts, and a huge budget provided by the taxpayers. This gives them a tremendous advantage because the legal system is based on the premise that “the whole truth” is that presented at the trial.

If a defendant cannot challenge the government’s case, or submit his or her own witnesses, then the jury by default will probably accept as true whatever evidence the prosecutor produces. In order to meet this challenge, our attorneys seek to meet the prosecutor fact for fact. Our strength lies in preparation, investigation, motion practice, and trial presentation.
