Finding Solutions to Your Charges
If you or a member of your family faces prosecution for a violent offense such as assault or a weapons charge, the advice of an experienced criminal defense attorney can help you. At Oliveros Law Group, our goal is to help people get through the criminal justice system with their rights respected, their dignity intact, and the lightest possible consequences.
Discuss Your Case with a Criminal Defense Lawyer
At Oliveros Law Group, our goal is to help you resolve your case on the most favorable terms possible. In most situations, we can achieve this objective through early engagement. We work to get your felony charges reduced to misdemeanors, eliminate sentencing, or dismiss charges entirely. We represent adults and juveniles facing such charges as:
- Assault and battery
- Sexual assault
- Aggravated assault (assault with a deadly weapon)
- Illegal possession of a firearm or other weapon
- Domestic violence
- Road rage
- Bar fights
- Other violent offenses
Our first step is to discuss the charges with you. You can help with your own defense by giving us a clear idea of the facts of the case, identifying witnesses, and filling in the gaps of information. We can then give you a good idea of your risk of punishment.
We fully explain the charges and the most likely penalties you may be facing. We consider the effect that any previous criminal convictions might have on the consequences you might be facing. If your record is clean, we tell you how we can use that to your advantage.
Our Advice Can Help You Choose Between a Plea Offer and a Trial
We concentrate on what the government needs to prove against you to win a conviction. We show you how the presumption of innocence that protects you can also provide the necessary advantage to negotiate a favorable plea or fight the case in court. The choice is yours.
You will find that your ability to negotiate a good outcome changes over time, and that your options are usually widest in the early stages of the case. We can guide you through the difficult choice to accept a plea offer or take your case to trial. Our experience with criminal defense means that you can count on us to make an accurate assessment of your risks while taking full advantage of your opportunities.
