Criminal Defense

The power to accuse a person of committing a criminal offense is one of the most awesome powers that the State possesses.  The accused may be confronted with paying fines, losing his or her freedom, or even losing his or her life.  Because the founding fathers had an appreciation for the dangers of vesting such awesome power in the State, it placed checks on that power by granting every individual accused of a crime the right to an attorney to zealously advocate for your interests.  The founders included the right to trial in front of 12 jurors and required the State to prove every element of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt.  This is the highest burden of proof available under the law because the stakes are so critical.
