At our firm, we protect our client’s life and liberty. We fight to demonstrate that your actions are justified and that your rights are protected.
In a criminal prosecution, a defendant may raise what are known as affirmative defenses- like that they were defending themselves, or someone else, when they undertook their actions. Additionally, even if a defendant’s actions aren’t legally justifiable, a skilled attorney can develop an “imperfect” self defense case, highlighting the good faith fear of a client and minimizing the consequences of their actions at the same time.
Because the legal system’s standard of ‘reasonableness’ is extremely vague and fact dependent, it is critical to have advocates on your side who are aware of what is legally admissible and persuasive to successfully establish an affirmative defense.
