CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY – MIERS LAW FIRM
You are presumed to be innocent until proven guilty, but it doesn’t always feel that way. Once arrested, you should contact a criminal defense attorney immediately to begin your defense. Sometimes a case can be resolved before charges are filed. At the Miers Law Firm, we will investigate the charges against you and find the best possible avenue for resolution. If we can find the best result pretrial, we will. If we need to go to trial, we will. Some offenses will have a way to get the case dismissed with some class work and community service. Criminal defense attorney Mitch Miers looks to find the best result for you and your future.
Criminal Defense Attorney Mitch Miers handles cases involving DWI and DUI, Drug and Possession cases for Marijuana and Controlled Substances (prescription drug cases, too), Assault (aggravated and domestic – family violence), and other crimes as well. An officer only needs probable cause to arrest you, but a jury will need proof beyond a reasonable doubt. That is a much higher burden. Do not think that the case against you is automatic simply because you were arrested (And do not think you have a slam dunk defense and don’t need a criminal defense attorney). In some cases (usually domestic violence) the responding officers will not speak to the arrested party for a statement prior to arrest. I cannot stress this enough: the arrest is not conclusive.
Some people question whether they need a criminal defense attorney. Prosecutors will not listen to an excuse. I have been at this too long and have seen it first hand. An experienced criminal defense attorney can guide you through the judicial process. Once we have the evidence, we will go over your case and I will make a recommendation to you on how to proceed. The course we take is always up to the client. A criminal defense attorney will work to get you the best possible outcome.
