Most St. Louis residents would agree it is important to have a level playing field in order for everyone to be given a fair chance. Unfortunately, individuals can find themselves in situations where this is not the case, such as where they may be outmatched by another person's experience and skill.
A good example of this is when a person is the target of a law enforcement investigation. Law enforcement may dedicate significant resources and effort to investigate a person for alleged wrongdoing. Accordingly, when charges are brought and an arrest is made, it can be intimidating and confusing for the individual who now is faced with defending himself or herself.
This is especially true when the charges are serious, such as in cases involving sex crimes. These charges can carry significant penalties if a person is convicted, making it all the more important to have a strong defense to the charges.
Our firm has years of experience in going toe to toe against the federal government in these serious cases. We have the experience, understanding of the law and advocacy skills to put on a vigorous defense for our clients. While the cases can be complex and time-consuming, we can level the playing field for our clients by holding the prosecution to its strict burden of proof.
For instance, as discussed recently in this blog, law enforcement often uses deceptive tactics in their investigation. Our firm can step in and advocate for our clients, including enforcing our clients' rights when it comes to being investigated for a crime. We can advise our clients on how to handle certain situations, and we can argue for the exclusion of evidence that was obtained in violation of our clients' rights.
