  • Why is criminal defense important?

    Criminal defense is perhaps the most important factor in determining whether an individual charged with a crime will go free, or face conviction and the resulting financial penalties, jail or prison sentences and other repercussions, depending on specific charges and severity. An individual's right to a competent defense is of paramount importance in the United States legal system, and every criminal trial requires, at the very least, the right to a proper defense.

  • What are the consequences of a poor criminal defense?

An insufficient or poor criminal defense that provides little evidence to establish doubt as to the defendant's guilt will most definitely result in a conviction with penalty. Some strategies for defense may fall short in trial, but it is the responsibility of your Clarksville criminal defense attorney to see to produce a defense that is raises reasonable doubt sufficiently to the jury. In some cases, a criminal defense may be so inept that it actually allows a greater risk of serious penalties as opposed to a more sound strategy that could have ended with minimal consequences.

  • How can a good defense lawyer help me?

A professional criminal defense lawyer can build a comprehensive defense based on available evidence, circumstantial facts, expert witness testimony, challenging prosecution witnesses and other actions that can effectively convince a jury to take a closer look at the prosecution's evidence and allow for the consideration that there may be doubt as to the defendant's guilt. A seasoned defense attorney can stand for the accused and provide confident representation that commands attention, and achieves results.
