You have many options when choosing a criminal defense attorney. One of the advantages of choosing Law Office of Michael L. Fell is the fact that he is a former prosecutor. You might wonder: Why is this advantageous to me? Read on to get the facts and then call us at (949) 585-9055 to get a free legal consultation.
He Has First-Hand Knowledge of the Prosecution’s Mindset
When you work with an attorney who was once a prosecutor, that knowledge is still there. They know what the prosecutor in your case is likely to be thinking. They know when a case is strong and when it would be difficult to win. This type of attorney can protect you with knowledge from both sides of the aisle.
Attorney Fell Knows How to Intervene Early
Attorney Fell was actually in charge of writing the Arson Manuals for charging people with arson crimes while he was at the District Attorney’s office. He taught classes to arson investigators and oversaw people in a variety of positions within the prosecutor’s office. He knows what they are looking for when they review police reports and he knows what is considered enough evidence to file.
If there is not enough evidence, or if the evidence that exists is weak or likely to be struck down in court, Law Office of Michael L. Fell can often work people within the D.A.’s office to convince them that there is not enough evidence to file charges. This prevents any charges from being filed and can mean an end to the criminal inquiry for you.
His Past Experience Gives Him the Advantage in Finding the Best Plea Deal
Due to the fact that Attorney Fell has made deals both as a prosecutor and a defense attorney, he has a good idea when the prosecution is most likely open to a deal. It is true that prosecutors are often willing to strike a deal if their case is weak, but they are also often willing to strike a deal on a case they are most certainly going to win, just so they can get the case off their desk. These are the situations in which Attorney Fell’s known ability to find “creative sentencing” options can be used to your advantage.
