What to Expect from the Legal Process
You may be worried about what to expect from the legal process in a criminal matter. We cover the broad strokes below; however, the process can end at or skip specific steps depending on your circumstances.
The Pre-Trial Process Consists of:
- Booking process
- Initial appearance before a judge
- Preliminary hearings on motions to suppress, motions to quash and other motions
Where possible, your lawyer will fight to have charges dropped or dismissed at the initial appearance or the preliminary hearing.
If your case does go to trial, the process will be affected by the nature of the offense (if you face a misdemeanor or felony charge, for example). The process can involve:
- Pre-trial conferences
- The choice to accept a plea bargain if offered
- Option to change plea
- The case goes to trial if a plea bargain is not accepted or offered
After sentencing, you will be found guilty or not guilty. If you are found guilty, the judge or jury can assess punishment.

Examples of Defenses
While the types of defenses we use will depend on the specifics of your case, they can include:
Violations of Constitutional Rights
There must be a reasonable ground for supposing that a charge is well-founded. Probable cause is usually required by law enforcement to justify any stop, search, or arrest. Other examples of violations of your constitutional rights can include:
- Coerced confession
- No Miranda rights read
In most cases, any evidence found without securing a proper warrant is inadmissible in court and may lead to charges being dropped. However, many exceptions can apply like the automobile exception and an inventory search.
Without sufficient evidence against you, your attorney will argue that there is no way for a jury to convict you and the prosecution should dismiss the case. However, if charges are still filed, and the state won’t dismiss, we take it to the people and have a jury trial.
Your attorney can present evidence that undermines a prosecutor’s claim, which, found credible, can negate criminal liability. Examples can include:
- Involuntary intoxication
Being falsely accused of a crime may be due to mistaken identity or something more serious. We can help you gather the evidence required to prove your innocence.
While you may have concerns about the cost of legal representation, in every case, it is well worth it.
