A More Progressive Approach to Legal Representation

Putting the government's allegations to the test

When accusations are made against Montgomery residents by others, it can be troubling and serious. This is particularly true when the accusations come in the form of criminal charges by the government. While criminal charges are not proof of anything and are merely accusations made by the government, they must be taken very seriously because the charges may carry the threat of imprisonment, fines or other potential penalties.

As discussed recently this blog, however, there can be a wide variety among different kinds of criminal charges. Different criminal charges may carry different potential penalties that could be imposed in the event of a conviction.

Felony charges typically carry more severe penalties than misdemeanor charges. Even within felony charges, however, there may be widely-ranging penalties depending on whether the charges are class A, class B, class C, class D or class E felonies.

Our firm works with clients facing many different kinds of criminal charges. We work closely with our clients to understand the facts of each case, the nature of the charges involved and the potential penalties at stake. In doing so, we can formulate a strategy to vigorously challenge the charges.

In some cases, this might be taking the matter to a criminal trial, where they government must prove each element of the charges against our clients in order to secure a conviction. In other cases, we can try to work with prosecutors to reduce the charges or come to some other beneficial arrangement for our clients. Ultimately, the right strategy will depend upon the circumstances of each case. For more information on our firm's services, please visit our criminal defense webpage.
