Building A Strategy For Your Case

It is a difficult and daunting task to attempt to navigate the legal system on your own. And it is ill-advised to go it alone. Building a defense involves a concrete understanding of the facts of your case and an even stronger understanding of the law, the possible defenses, the standards of proof, and several other considerations that define a strong criminal defense. 

For example, in the event of a DUI charge, depending on the facts of your case, we may build a strategy that focuses on the unreliability and inaccuracy of the blood alcohol test results from your DUI arrest because of the way it was collected, stored, handled or processed. However, this type criminal defense requires a strong understanding of the rules, regulations, laws, and legal principles that govern the way that type of evidence is supposed to be collected. 

There are several different factors that we’ll be taking into consideration as your criminal defense lawyer when working out a strategy for your case. You have the right to defend yourself, and at Legal Powers we help you do exactly that.
