Questions about Criminal Defense

At the Schwartz Law Group, we believe in the concept of “Attorney & Counselor” – we’re not just here to defend you or your loved one, we’re here to give you our expertise, prepare you for court, work on your testimony, and support you through the process.

Every client is interviewed carefully and cases are reviewed thoroughly for anything that could drive a better outcome. We believe in an individualized approach, so your case is more personal in front of the prosecutor and judge.

Your attorney should address any feelings and fears you may have about your arrest, the charges, and the experience you’re going through. The Schwartz Law Group is known for treating individuals with respect and dignity because we know every case – and circumstance – is unique.

Many criminal defense attorneys will investigate your charges. A thorough investigation is necessary to identify opportunities to achieve the best possible resolution. In some situations, the best outcome will be having your charges reduced to impaired driving. However, there may be an opportunity to have your charges reduced much more dramatically or even completely dismissed, depending on what our investigation reveals.

This investigative process includes reviewing dashcam tapes to determine if field sobriety tests were conducted properly. The Schwartz Law Group will examine police reports to find out if the traffic stop was performed correctly and to see if the police had probable cause to stop you. We will also look at breathalyzer evidence to make sure it was used according to guidelines.

Call the Schwartz Law Group for a thorough investigation of your case.

Whether you’re charged with theft, a DUI, or assault, you’ll need an experienced criminal defense attorney at your side but finding the right criminal defense attorney can be difficult.

There are many things to question and think about when looking for a criminal defense attorney:

  • Are they passionate about the law?
  • How much experience do they have?
  • Will they understand how unique my case is?
  • What’s their track record on best possible solution vs. easiest solution?
  • What do their other clients say about them?
  • Do they know how to work in multiple courts or just one?
  • What kind of relationships have they built with prosecuting attorneys and judges?

Not every criminal defense attorney will have experience in multiple areas of criminal defense and many aren’t passionate about helping everyday people win back their lives.
