Areas of Practice

At Paladin Legal Defenders, we handle an exceptionally wide range of criminal cases – from minor offenses like petty theft and DUI to serious offenses like sexual assault and murder. Over the last 17 years, we have handled countless misdemeanor and felony cases and gotten results that few other firms can.

A Proactive Approach to Criminal Defense

We believe that when it comes to criminal defense, there is no time to waste. We know that any delay on our part can give the prosecution the time they need to strengthen their case. This is why when we are retained on a case, we get to work right away. From finding favorable evidence to counseling our clients on what steps to take to help their case, we do everything we can to stay ahead of the prosecution. It is one of the reasons for our exceptionally high success rate.

A Legal Team that Includes a Former Police Officer and a Former Prosecutor

Thanks to a top-rated legal team that includes a former police officer and a former prosecutor, we have an in-depth understanding of how criminal cases are prosecuted – from the moment a person is arrested to the closing arguments of a trial.

We know how evidence is collected, how prosecutors decide what kind of charges to bring against a defendant, how they build a case, and what kind of strategies they use to obtain a conviction. Having been on both sides of the courtroom, we also know how to spot the weak points in the prosecution’s case – something many defense attorneys might not be able to do.

Moreover, all of our attorneys are trained litigators and have years of trial experience. Prosecutors know that if we do not get a favorable plea deal for our clients, we will not hesitate to go all the way to trial. It gives us the leverage we need to get more favorable plea deals for our clients.

Legal Intervention at the Right Time

When it comes to criminal cases, we do not wait for the prosecution to make the first move. We investigate the case, gather as much evidence as we can, and give the prosecution the defendant’s version of the story. If the evidence we present is compelling, and if the prosecution believes that they might not be able to get a conviction, they may decide to reduce the charges or choose to not press charges at all.

Experience in Handling a Diverse Range of Criminal Cases

As a full-service law firm, we have handled an incredibly vast range of cases over the years. We have successfully defended individuals facing criminal charges ranging from petty theft to DUI, domestic violence, drug crimes, violent crimes, weapon crimes, and murder. Regardless of how serious the charges against you are and what kind of a predicament you are in, chances are we might have handled a similar case before and will know exactly how to proceed to get you the best possible outcome.
