The Responsibilities of Our Montgomery County Criminal Defense Lawyer
Providing a thorough criminal defense involves handling many complex legal tasks. We offer:
Anything you share with our legal team is held in the highest confidence. That means what you share with us stays with us. We want to know everything about the circumstances of the alleged crime, including how police handled the arrest, your mental faculties at the time of your arrest, and other relevant matters.
To build the strongest possible defense, we must evaluate and understand the facts of your situation. We look for any evidence that the police screwed things up or otherwise didn’t gather evidence properly. If so, we can use this information to suppress evidence later.
We don’t take the prosecutor’s word for what happened. We conduct our own independent investigation into what happened before, during, and after the alleged incident. Supporting evidence in your case could include:
- Witness accounts
- Security camera, dash cam, or traffic camera footage
- The details of the arrest report
- Forensic evidence, such as the results of a blood alcohol test
Our criminal defense team aims to show the State cannot prove the case against you beyond a reasonable doubt. That way, you can walk away from this tiring ordeal with your rights and peace of mind intact.
Assistance in All Bureaucratic Matters
You’d be surprised at the amount of paperwork involved in a criminal defense case. On your own, it’s easy for these items to get lost in the shuffle. With our team, however, you don’t have to worry about anything. We take care of pre-trial motions, the submission of evidence, and other matters on your behalf.
There are some instances where, even for our skilled defense team, an acquittal isn’t possible. In those instances, we may negotiate with the prosecution for a plea deal. For instance, if you’re facing a DWI charge, we may negotiate to have the charges reduced to reckless driving. This could limit the penalties you face and promote your freedom.
If your case goes to trial, to secure your freedom, Attorney Jay Blass Cohen will present evidence, interview and cross-examine witnesses, and fight to get your case dismissed. We don’t settle for anything less than the best possible outcome, and neither should you.
These are just some of the tasks our Montgomery County criminal defense team takes on. We go beyond and above to prove your innocence and secure a not guilty verdict.
