Is it good criminal defense strategy to reject a settlement offer and go to trial? Our Virginia criminal defense lawyers believe it unwise to provide a blanket answer to that question. Rather, we conduct a thorough investigation of a criminal case before coming up with an appropriate legal defense strategy.
Our review begins with the police arrest procedures, looking for any illegalities in conduct, such as entrapment or an illegal search and seizure. We also continually assess the litigation hazards of a case, remaining open to negotiating a plea with prosecutors in situations where it would best serve our clients’ interests.
