When you are charged with a crime, regardless of the outcome of the case, society tends to view you in a negative light. Broadway Law attorneys, however, take a very different approach; our mission is based on the ideal that each accused person is innocent until proven guilty. Our attorneys work tirelessly to defend clients charged with criminal matters ranging from minor misdemeanors related to drug possession to felony charges for a variety of crimes.
If you are facing a criminal charge, no matter how minor, you could benefit from talking to a Broadway Law Defense Attorney. Even if you decide not to hire us to represent you in court, a consultation with us could help you to understand the charges against you, the defenses available to you, what plea bargains might be offered to you and what to do if you are convicted.
- If you are facing a serious charge, it is highly recommended that you have a defense attorney represent you in court, rather than just consult with him/her before your trial.
- Broadway Law Defense attorneys will also identify key pretrial issues, issue motions that can improve your situation or even get your case dismissed.
Understand the difference between a defense attorney and a public defender. Public defenders are generally reserved for people who cannot afford private attorneys. However, public defenders have very little time and resources to work on your case and result in less justice, according to research done by the Justice Policy Institute.
- Many public defenders try to juggle over two hundred cases or more. That is way over the maximum number of cases recommended by the American Bar Association, which recommends that any attorney should not handle over one hundred cases. Public defenders may be very passionate about their jobs and have the best intentions. However, they may be overwhelmed by the sheer number of cases and jeopardize their client’s constitutional right to effective representation in criminal court.
Regardless of the charges against you, Broadway Law will work aggressively to defend you in a court of law.
