Last week on this blog, we discussed a case where a former business executive faces white collar crime charges for allegedly altering his company’s financial documents. Financial crimes, also known as white collar crimes, encompass a large area of the law. Californians who face such allegations are in for a fight, as aggressive prosecutors look to give a strong voice to those who have lost money. When facing such zealous prosecution, those accused of a financial crime will need to draft and deliver an equally prepared and strong criminal defense.
Preparing an adequate defense is not easy task. A defendant and his or her legal team must closely analyze the allegations, assess the facts and apply the law to the situation. Then, evidence, as well as witnesses, must be discovered and utilized in an attempt to raise doubt as to a defendant’s guilt. All of this must be done within the confines of the law and missteps, even improper introduction of evidence or witness testimony, could change the landscape of the case.
Therefore, those accused of committing a criminal offense need to ensure they know the law and how to use it to their benefit. The Law Office of Thomas A Johnson has years of experience working with criminal defendants to create defense strategies that protect their legal rights and attempt to shield them from penalties, when possible. Our firm fully prepares each case, and we maintain open and honest communication with our clients to ensure that they can make fully informed decisions regarding their defense.
In the end, we are fighting for our clients’ futures. We leave no stone unturned when it comes to preparing a defense, and we stand up for our clients against prosecutors who overstep their bounds. With diligent work and a passion for the law, we hope our clients walk away from their case knowing that they received the best representation available to them.
