The Best Defense Is A Strong Offense
In criminal cases, it can be tempting to work with the prosecutor and law enforcement and try to avoid a trial. The belief is that this may result in lesser penalties in your situation. However, this is a mistaken assumption.
It is important to have an attorney working on your behalf who is ready and willing to go to trial. When the prosecution knows that your attorney is happy to go to trial, and will fight aggressively for you, they are more likely to reduce or drop charges, or offer favorable plea bargains.
