We Will Work Hard To Challenge The Prosecutor's Case

There is one person you can count on for being on your side when you have been accused of a violent crime — your lawyer. The prosecutor is looking for reasons to lock you up for a long time, not find reasons to set you free.

We investigate and challenge the evidence. Why did the police arrest you? Did they respect your rights when they looked for evidence? Are you the victim of mistaken identity? We talk to witnesses or informants and investigate whether they have agendas of their own, such as pending plea agreements or other deals for their testimony.

What does the scientific evidence actually show? The prosecutor can look at evidence and see your guilt, but our law firm will look at the evidence to establish what that evidence actually proves.

We are trial lawyers who fight to win. We are constantly studying and practicing in order to enhance our trial techniques. Our goal always is to hear "not guilty" from the jury. As a last resort, when it is in our client's best interests, we will negotiate a plea. In a recent case, our client faced a minimum sentence of 10 years in the penitentiary; we pled the case down to a charge with no mandatory prison time — a significant difference.

When you are serious about fighting the charges against you, if you want your day in court, talk to the criminal defense attorneys at Ralph E. Meczyk & Associates.
