Your lawyer will stand up for your rights and not allow you to be bullied, badgered, or intimidated. Keep in mind that until you have been proven guilty, you must be presumed to be an innocent person. At Alvarez, the presumption of innocence guides our every action in preparing your case for trial.
Identifying the best defense
In preparing your case, we will question whether the evidence is sufficient for a conviction. We will examine the initial contact with police to determine if it was legal, if they had the right to stop you, and if they had probable cause for an arrest. We will question where the drugs were found, if they were within your reach, and whom they belonged to. We will look for evidence of illegal entrapment, and we will determine whether you were properly informed of your rights before you were questioned. If law enforcement failed to follow proper procedures to safeguard your constitutional rights, we will work to get the charges dismissed.
If you are a first time offender, we will explore the possibility of a diversionary program or drug treatment instead of jail time. If your case gets to trial, we will see that you are thoroughly prepared if you are going to testify.
