Defending Your Rights and Freedom
In gun charge cases, as in other criminal matters, the government must prove the guilt of the accused beyond a reasonable doubt. Depending on the circumstances, there may be several defense strategies available. The Law Offices of Robert Kerr will examine all of these possibilities and systematically pursue all which provide an opportunity for success. These can include motions to quash arrest and suppress evidence, suppressing statements made by the defendant and witnesses, challenge the validity of a search warrant, and other legal challenges. Whenever possible, I will seek to obtain a dismissal of the charge, convince the prosecutor to drop the charge, or obtain vindication at trial.
In other cases, it may be possible to negotiate the charge down to one with lesser penalties. While this is not the most advantageous solution, sometimes it is the best choice. I can discuss the issues your case presents with you. If you want to seek a negotiated plea I will negotiate aggressively with the prosecutor to achieve the best possible solution for you.
