Let's Clear Up a Common Misconception

There are many misconceptions about how legal defenses work. One common misconception is that judges respect when a defendant forks out large sums of cash for a defense attorney. This reasoning is apparently based on the notion that all judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys are all on the same team and work together. Honestly, the judge couldn't care less about you hiring an attorney. The judges are there to interpret the law and provide justice, and the prosecutors are there to put people in jail. Judges care about the truth as do some prosecutors.

We Regularly Get our Clients Favorable Courtroom Results

Interestingly, even when the truth is not favorable for a defendant, a great defense attorney can often find technical points and holes in the prosecution to get their clients off of the hook or an otherwise desirable result. Whether it involves getting a case thrown out, getting a defendant a suspended sentence, getting the defendant a minimum sentence, or getting the best possible plea bargain for the defendant that the defendant would never got on his or her own, the Law Offices of David S. Chesley, INC are second-to-none.

Don't DIY!

When it comes to many things in life, you can comfortably and safely do it yourself. For example, you can mow your own grass, perform your own oil changes, and even build your own website. However, when it comes to defending yourself in a court of law, the Law Offices of David S. Chesley, INC strongly advise that you do not DIY!

You Need a Quality Defense Attorney

If you have been charged with a crime, you need a criminal defense lawyer near you who knows the courts well and can represent you and advocate for your best interests. Particularly, you need a defense attorney, not an attorney who handles criminal cases. What's the difference? For example, if you have a heart problem, you wouldn't go to a general practitioner for treatment. You would go to a heart specialist. The same principle applies in law. At the Law Offices of David S. Chesley, INC, we only handle criminal cases.
