No criminal defense attorney can promise you an acquittal or a favorable plea bargain. If he or she does, it is unethical. It is very important to know that defendants (accused) are always at a disadvantage when fighting charges. The Government has a lot more money to pay prosecutors, experts, and Police to gain a conviction, than any private citizen can pay a lawyer. An accused without an attorney usually says something incriminating when talking to the police or the prosecutor. Public Defenders are often overworked, underpaid. For these reasons, Prosecutors possess significant leverage over defendants. This imbalance causes defendants to feel helpless, entering pleas that will haunt them for years. Wolfe Legal Services will help even the odds. Our 20 years of experience tells us how to find the weak points in a criminal case.
Negotiated Pleas, often called “plea bargains” can reduce your potential sentence or eliminate some of the charges against you. If plea negotiations are possible, then having the best attorney will be important. As your criminal defense attorney, I will make sure your rights are protected. If you desire a trial, or motion to suppress, I can do it for you.
In some counties, such as Licking, there is no plea negotiating. Your only options are to plead guilty or go to trial. That is where you need a top criminal defense attorney who won’t be intimidated by the prosecutor. He’ll advocate and point out the flaws in the prosecutor’s evidence. We look for technical defenses. We will gather information from witnesses that will confirm your version of the events. If you wish, we will find and hire “expert witnesses” that may present evidence that rebuts the prosecution’s argument.
