That’s the kind of knowledge and experience that defendants need on their side when they’re facing pressure to take a plea deal. That’s the kind of respect that can command a courtroom and make a defendant’s case in front of a jury of their peers.
Prosecutors may seek to pressure a defendant into a plea bargain. A defense lawyer with experience knows when a plea bargain is good for the defendant and when it’s simply the government’s attempt to bluff their way through a weak case. Good defense counsel understands how to investigate a case, probing the methods the authorities use to get their evidence, and vigorously contesting any violation of the defendant’s constitutional rights. An experience defense lawyer further understands how to conduct a trial and to communicate the defendant’s case to a jury in the best possible way.
Hard questions have to be asked—did the authorities have reason to make a stop? Was the equipment and procedures used to administer a blood alcohol content level (BAC) test in accord with state law? These are no mere technicalities. At minimum, it’s simply insisting that authorities follow the very laws and rules that they are called to enforce. At worst, mistakes in these areas can lead to faulty BAC readings and unjust arrests.
