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
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.
