How Will A Criminal Defense Lawyer Represent Me WIth My Case?

The criminal defense attorneys at The Burnett Firm will do everything possible to best represent you in your criminal case. We often start by obtaining a bond or moving to have your bond reduced in addition to getting the incident report and video of your arrest. Next, our lawyers will interview you and your witnesses to get your side of the story and review the facts to determine the appropriate motions to file in attempt to have your case dismissed. We may also try to limit the evidence that can be admitted for use against you at trial and negotiate on your behalf to persuade the prosecutor to offer a favorable resolution of the charges against you without a trial

When preparing for and conducting your trial, our criminal defense lawyers will meet with you and your witnesses to go over the testimony necessary to put on a vigorous defense. We will also create a theme for your case and prepare to select a jury based upon that theme. Next, The Burnett Firm prepares an opening statement to reinforce and drive home the theme. Our lawyers will also prepare jury instructions so that the Court will give the jury an understanding of the law that applies to your defense.

At the end of the trial, The Burnett Firm will draw upon the witness testimony to argue to the jury that the State has not met its burden of proof and persuade them to vote “Not Guilty
