Why Having a Former Prosecutor is Key

Criminal Defense Lawyer in Marietta

When choosing a criminal defense attorney to represent you following an arrest, perhaps the most important question you should ask is, "What experience do you have with this type of case?"

An attorney with an extensive track record may make a world of difference getting you the best possible results. Consider how much you may gain by hiring a defense attorney who also has experience as a prosecutor. That is why you should contact the team at Henrickson & Sereebutra right away!

Get an Advocate who will Fiercely Fight in Your Favor

By hiring a former prosecutor, you can retain an advocate who has experience on both sides of the courtroom. A former prosecutor understands how cases progress from the moment of the arrest to the end of the trial and potential appeal process.

There are some of the matters former prosecutors can recognize:

  • How evidence is gathered
  • How all decisions affect filing charges
  • How prosecutors build cases and pursue convictions

More importantly, a former prosecutor knows where to look for faults in the evidence and weaknesses in the case which may be exploited to your advantage. By working with the team at Henrickson & Sereebutra you may not only be able to avoid a conviction but could even avoid having the case go to trial altogether.

The Team Has Handled Thousands of Cases

Another important factor to consider is the volume of cases your attorney has worked on. Former prosecutors, like the firm's Marietta criminal defense attorneys, generally have far greater caseloads and have to learn to quickly evaluate the case for its strengths and weaknesses. They must learn to think fast and on their feet in the courtroom. They know that a current prosecutor's volume of work often makes it difficult or impossible to invest the same amount of time and effort in a case that a private defense attorney can, which means the team of former prosecutors will know how to exploit this.

Former Prosecutors Can Negotiate a Better Plea Bargain

When an exoneration or dismissal of charges is out of the question, it becomes necessary to negotiate a plea bargain, such as for a reduced sentence or a lesser charge. A former prosecutor can be an invaluable asset in this situation, as your Marietta criminal defense attorney knows just how far the District Attorney can go in making a deal. The first offer is almost never the best arrangement available, and your attorney may be able to push further to secure better terms for you.

If you choose to work with Henrickson & Sereebutra you will have a team of former prosecutors on your side that have more than 40 years of combined experience and a track record of success.
