The practice of criminal defense is both an art and a science. When you talk to Mr. Watkins after having been criminally charged, you are very likely going to be scared or confused about what got you into trouble. Mr. Watkins will start by listening to you, the client, to hear about the case directly from you. He will guide you through the process of making your court appearances, meticulously comb through the police reports and other evidence in your case and advise you honestly about what your options are.
Some cases are resolved through negotiations with the state, some are resolved by battling it out in court through statutory or constitutional defenses or at trial. A lawyer must inform you of any offers that have been made to resolve your case, but how to proceed with your case will always be your decision.
If you or someone you love has been arrested or charged with a crime, call Matthew Watkins today for a free consultation.
