All Criminal Defendants are Innocent until Proven Guilty
The foundation of our criminal justice system rests on the premise that all persons are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Due to the advent of social media, people are often accused of crimes, these accusations go viral, and people are presumed to be guilty even before they walk into court. We will ensure that the jury understands that you are innocent until proven guilty.
Guilt Must be Proven Beyond a Reasonable Doubt
The prosecutor must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt requires a high threshold of proof. This means more than just having a “hunch” that you committed a crime. The jury must find truth in the charges, and you have many constitutional rights and protections to help you defend against those charges. With your life and liberty at stake, you need the experience and confidence of The Baez Law Firm on your side. We will help to gather evidence that can be used to demonstrate your innocence, as well as refute evidence and claims of guilt presented by the prosecution.
Protecting Your Future
If you are not sure whether or not you need an attorney, trust us – you do. Without an attorney, you are putting yourself at greater risk of being convicted of the crime for which you have been accused, and receiving the harshest penalties permitted by the law. While we cannot guarantee that you will be released and the charges against you will be dropped – or that a trial will result in a verdict of innocent – we can guarantee that we will work hard on your behalf, and that your constitutional rights during the criminal procedure will be upheld. If any courtroom or juror misconduct occurs, or if your rights to a fair trial are infringed upon, we will jump into action immediately.
A criminal conviction is not the same thing as being charged with a crime. While the latter still provides hope for the future, a criminal conviction can result in huge fines that leave you financially destitute, years’ worth of prison time, strict probationary periods, and more. A conviction will also appear on your criminal record, potentially impairing your ability to find employment or housing in the future.
A Law Firm That Cares About You
Who you call after you have been charged with a crime is one of the most important decisions that you will ever make. You do not want just anyone handling your case; you want an attorney who actually cares about your life and your outcome. At The Baez Law Firm, our criminal defense attorneys will always prioritize your needs and make sure that you understand the criminal process. We will also do everything that we can to reduce the chances of you being convicted or mitigate potentially harsh sentencing.
