The Burden of Proof Is on The Prosecution, Not You
When it comes to deciding if you’re guilty of a crime, whether it is a felony, or misdemeanor, the burden of proof is on the prosecution and the justice system to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
If you find yourself the subject of a criminal investigation or prosecution, you should seek legal counsel immediately. This is true even if you are confident of your innocence – the justice system is complicated, and the burden of proof is on the prosecution to show you committed a crime. You have no obligation to cooperate with police or prosecution. At our firm, we aggressively protect your rights and ensure police have followed all proper procedures and make sure the government doesn’t interfere with your privacy. We will require them to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, and if a conviction occurs, we will strive to mitigate or eliminate punishment. You should not face the justice system alone – we will be your ally and advocate every step of the way.
