Sessions Court Is an Opportunity That Should Not Be Overlooked
If you have been charged with a misdemeanor, from DUI to a drug crime, your case is likely to begin with a preliminary hearing in sessions court. Make certain you have an attorney by your side at this crucial point in your case.
Our attorneys have experience working with sessions courts to reach positive outcomes at this early stage in the criminal justice process. Even if a positive outcome cannot be reached in the preliminary hearing, this still provides us with a valuable opportunity to position your case for success at a later stage.
Of course, there are some charges that cannot be handled in sessions court. Many felonies, including drug crimes and sex crimes, will go straight to criminal court.
Strong Defense in Criminal Court
Criminal court is what most people think of when they think of criminal trials. This is where jury trials happen. Our lawyers are well-versed in the rules of criminal court. If we are unsuccessful at the sessions court level, or the crime you are charged with is not handled in sessions court, you can be confident that we will be thoroughly prepared to succeed at the criminal court level.
We are trial attorneys. Arguing cases in front of a judge and jury is not new to us. We have won in the setting many times, and if your case requires trial, you can be certain we will do everything within our power to make your case a success as well.
