Charged with a crime? Your choice of an attorney is likely the most important decision you will make --- to earn the best result for your case.
What Do You Need to Know?
Likely by the time that you are charged, the reports will have been written ... statements from witnesses will have been recorded ... and examinations of the evidence - by investigators will have been completed. The government's work is done. Alas, yours is just beginning. The next best decision - for you - would be to consult with an experienced Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney to into the state's case and to work to seek the best possible outcome.
What Can a Lawyer Do For You?
As a former prosecutor, my approach to criminal defense is a step by step process that has been demonstrated effective in achieving results such as though below.
First, we identify the inaccuracies and holes in the police reports. This is essential for simply a basic understanding of conflicting facts, and where we have to go to demonstrate your version of events.
Second, we identify where the reports themselves fall short in describing the precise crime charged, and how evidence and statements were obtained. This analysis forms the basis of motions to dismiss the case. A case may be dismissed if the police reports themselves, even if believed, simply don’t add up to the crime charged. In other cases, statements and evidence may be suppressed, meaning it can’t be used at trial, because it was unlawfully obtained or because it is not sufficiently reliable or consistent with other evidence.
Third, we conduct our own investigation if necessary to generate evidence which supports your story, what you know actually happened. One of the greatest powers a lawyer has is he ability to compel the appearance of witnesses at trial, or have them arrested if they do not show.
Fourth, we consult with the top experts in many fields of forensic study with whom Mr. Rolloff has cultivated close professional relationships.
Finally, we prepare for trial throughout the process. Not every case goes to trial, but every case must be prepared for trial, or plea negotiations and motions have no teeth whatsoever. Trial is the leverage which results in good resolution that keeps you free, keeps your record clean, or which results in dismissal altogether.
Preparing a matter for trial involves more than just challenging the evidence in front of a jury. The jury ultimately wants to hear a story, not a series of statutes and procedures.
