Criminal Defense Talent and Deep Experience

Could Save You Years Behind Bars. 

Down-to-earth people are usually a pretty sensible bunch.

They’re not full of themselves or a lot of BS. Because they tend to be levelheaded and truthful, they can be very convincing, especially when they come to the table with quick, well-prepared minds, and are recognized for genuine skills.  Skills trump flash every time.

Legal skills take time to develop. So do human skills.

Long experience gets to be vital. Not just in legal knowledge, but also in anticipating how the opposition is going to function and respond.  Decades of practice can result in high degrees of confidence, and a sense of sound pragmatism.

The idea in federal cases is to cooperate early and often.

Knowing that is not enough. It takes an experienced criminal defense attorney to set up the process correctly, engage the necessary people and prepare the defendant. This needs to happen during the investigation process, before charges are brought.

Careful! Some attorneys have experience in Hawai‘i State courts; far fewer have any grasp of the Federal system; fewer still have practiced in a military setting.
