Why Hire a Former Prosecutor as Your Defense Attorney?
When you, your child, or a loved one is facing possibly the greatest challenge of your life, you’re going to want to choose the best criminal defense attorney in Panama City Beach, Panama City and Northwest Florida for the fight at hand. You’re going to want to choose someone who had a successful career as a prosecuting attorney before entering the field of criminal defense. You’re going to want to choose a defense attorney who is a former assistant state attorney and knows how many prosecutors may think.
While working in the prosecutor’s office for over 10 years, I was in court regularly. I got to know the other prosecutors and the judges in the Bay, Washington, Jackson, Holmes, Escambia, Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa County courts and gained insight into how to prepare and present effective arguments in all of these courtrooms.
One of the most powerful figures influencing your case is the prosecutor. In addition to trying your case, the prosecutor initiates the process by filing the charges against you. It is the prosecutor who has the authority and discretion to decide when to file charges, what charges to file, whether to file charges at all, and to dismiss the charges if convinced that the case against you is weak or unjustified. With over 10 years of former experience as a prosecutor, I can often tell which cases the prosecutors are most likely going to vigorously pursue and which cases they are more most likely going to dismiss, as well as how and when to influence the prosecutor’s decision in these areas. Time is of the essence for the assistant state attorneys with their burden of extraordinary caseloads.
