Experience and Knowledge Really Do Matter
As a Certified Criminal Trial Attorney, Howard Bailey has seen the criminal justice process from every angle that matters to protecting the rights of a client. When you are being charged with a crime or being investigated, the most important thing for a client to do is say I WANT A LAWYER, every time a cop asks a question. If the cop asks you to give a statement, say I WANT A LAWYER. If the cop asks to sign a Miranda warning, write I WANT A LAWYER on the form. Anything you say can be used against you. Anything your lawyer says cannot be used against you. From experience, we know that the first thing a cop and a prosecutor want is to get you to say something that helps them convict you. Stop helping them convict you!
Protecting You with a Strong Defense
Protecting a client’s rights and building a strong defense are all part of what needs to be done to successfully defend a client from the possibility of conviction. Plea negotiations with the prosecutor’s office should be conducted from a position of strength, and that means we have to investigate and argue any issue that can impact the State’s case against you. Using the knowledge and experience from Mr. Bailey’s long career in criminal law, we use investigators who are retired police officers to help build a strong defense for our clients. When the type of crime charged or the issues developed by the defense call for it, we use expert witnesses to support the defense arguments.
