Law enforcement agencies at the state and federal levels have seemingly unlimited resources to investigate and prosecute criminal allegations. These prosecution-bent organizations have enormous power and are not afraid to wield it. If you are the subject of a criminal investigation, or if you have already been charged with a crime, it is important to enlist the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Your lawyer must be able to review the evidence against you and compile additional evidence favorable to your case. Above all, your lawyer must be able to make a powerful defense on your behalf in trial.
