A proven record of aggressive defense
When one is accused of a crime he or she is not responsible for; either because that person did not do what they are being charged with, or because they are not legally responsible for their actions (ex. when one acts in self-defense), plea negotiations are inappropriate. Complete exoneration is always the goal. Trial is often the only answer. In other cases, the best course calls for the negotiation of pleas which resolve a client's legal problems with the least impact on his and his family's life.
