Building a Strong Case

"When defending a client, I try to turn the state's witnesses into defense witnesses." — Harvey C. Welch

I will closely examine all aspects of your case, including the context of the events leading to your arrest, your motivations, and the actions and motivations of the complainant. Whenever possible, I will seek to obtain a dismissal of the charge. If this is not possible, or you choose to take the case to trial, I will vigorously represent you in trial.

In the past, I have been successful through careful cross-examination of the state's witnesses — questioning their involvement, their motivation and their recollection of the event in question. If this tactic holds promise in your case, I will seek to fatally weaken the prosecution's case in this way.
