DISCOVERY REVIEW AND ANALYSIS: FACTS HAVE TO BE FOUND, REVIEWED & COGENTLY ANALYZED
As any attorney knows, the pillars of a criminal defense case are the actual, exonerating facts that get accepted by the court into evidence. Defense attorneys must still connect these facts with relevant legal theory and persuasive argument, but the facts don’t just land in the lap of the criminal defense team. They must be discovered. And, whether purists want to accept it or not, the discovery process is often a game of hide-and-seek. That’s where we come in. Our investigators are experts in understanding what facts need to be discovered for the particular case at hand, how to review discovery provided by the prosecution, and how to analyze it to help the attorney put together the strongest case possible.
FACTS FLOW IN BOTH DIRECTIONS
An additional aspect of investigative prowess within the discovery process in a criminal case is the thorough understanding of legal and ethical requirements as to which facts must be turned over to the prosecution in a timely manner. It’s a delicate balance but one on which we have a firm grasp. Having worked a staggering number of defense cases, our seasoned investigators know the rules and work steadfastly and honorably to follow them. At the same time, we work on our client’s behalf, to make sure the prosecution doesn’t take advantage of the process.
DISCOVERY & FACTS THAT HAVE A JE NE SAIS QUOI
Like some unique individuals, some facts have that certain something about them. They’re the ones that can make or break a case. And they’re the ones we’re dedicated to find, analyze, and help counsel present in court. How do you know what they are? You don’t. But they emerge after we dig into a case. Maybe they come from something a witness says, or lab reports, but however they surface, we are driven to grab them. After all, no matter the crime someone is accused of, we believe fact gathering, and the discovery process as a whole, demand the intensity and veracity we bring to every case.
