Can you get my charges dismissed? If not, what outcome can I expect?
No attorney can predict the future. If you are interviewing a lawyer who promises you any outcome, we suggest you run out of his/her office as that is unethical and should not be tolerated. It most likely means that they simply want your money and will promise you a sunny day in order to get your money. It is not uncommon for our firm to have criminal charges, ranging from misdemeanors to felonies dismissed, and perhaps your case can be dismissed as well. However, statistically speaking it is unlikely that your case will be dismissed. Every case is different and every outcome may be different. In our firm we are willing to give you an idea of a range of likely outcomes based upon the facts of your case, as well as the charge itself, the particular court you may be in and the prosecutor you may be dealing with. We think that part of what we get paid to do is to use our vast experience to provide you guidance on what you are really facing. We won’t lie to you and offer you a sunny day if there are clouds in the sky, nor will we frighten you into taking a plea agreement just to get the case over with, if we believe that you should continue to fight for a dismissal, a better plea or a win at trial. Ultimately, while the case is pending we will tell you what we think is the likely outcome at various stages. Our opinion on those outcomes may change as the evidence rolls in or as the case progresses. We cannot promise what will happen, but may provide at least a pretty good idea of what is likely to happen based upon our vast experience. Our predictions of the outcome of a client’s case rarely fall outside the range that we predict and provide for the client. This is because our lawyers have done this for so long that we have a very good idea about what the outcome may be. Some cases are so strange or have so many variables that we just don’t know or have a good feel for the outcome. If this is the case, we will tell you. No matter the case, if you've been charged with a criminal act, you need to seek legal help immediately and we will give you our thoughts. We are here to help you, so call (888) 988-5659 as soon as you can.
