Criminal Cases We Handle
Few things are more frightening than being arrested and charged with a
crime. Unfortunately, many people either act too quickly and retain the
wrong representation or they believe that their cases are too hopeless,
so they fail to take any legal action at all. It is important to understand
that being arrested for a crime does not mean that you will be found guilty
of the crime!
The Law Offices of Saia & Piatt, Inc. can provide you with exceptional
legal representation if you or a loved one has been accused of any of
the following types of offenses:
Our success is due in part to our commitment to one simple premise: preparation.
We can thoroughly investigate the claims brought against you, file a motion
to suppress illegally-obtained evidence, and present your side of the
story strongly and persuasively at trial.
Our Approach to Defending Your Rights
Many people believe that there is an inequality of power and material resources
in the criminal justice system. It is typically apparent that the district
attorney's office has a large staff of prosecutors, police, investigators,
sophisticated crime labs, expert witnesses, and a huge budget. This seemingly
gives the prosecution a tremendous advantage.
In order to present a comprehensive and compelling defense, our attorneys
meet the prosecutor fact for fact. We can accomplish this in three ways:
Conduct an investigation. Obtaining knowledge of your case, examining all evidence, and determining
which pieces of evidence can be used in your favor or which pieces of
evidence may present a challenge to your case allows us to build a strong
defense against your charges. Investigating every possible avenue makes
us the most prepared team in the courtroom!
Prepare for a trial. Not every case goes to trial, and not every case will benefit from negotiation.
By thoroughly examining evidence, preparing witness statements, and exploring
alternative strategies or sentences, the facts of your case can be presented
in the most persuasive manner possible to a judge and jury.
Approach each case with unwavering representation. Approaching each case with unwavering representation is the key to a solid
defense. When we take on a case, we bring the vision, work ethic, and
determination needed to develop a working strategy on which we can build
your defense. Because each case is unique, we listen to your goals and
objectives. This allows us to provide personal and attentive legal representation
that helps us seek the best possible resolution to criminal trials and
pursue criminal record
What you do immediately after arrest can have a significant impact on your
defense and the future outcome of your case. Our attorneys know that many
people who are accused of committing a crime feel the urge to throw in
the towel simply because police have convinced them that the evidence
against them is too incriminating to fight. However, with solid representation
from a Columbus criminal defense lawyer at The Law Offices of Saia &
Piatt, Inc., there is nothing to fear!
