Managing expectations in hard-to-win cases
Lawyers for criminal defense know that one of the most important things we can do is to help you focus on realistic expectations. If you're innocent of the charges against you, it's reasonable to believe that a capable attorney can get you off. But if the facts are dead against you, the most you can expect from a very good lawyer is to have your charges and punishment reduced in a sentencing negotiation or plea bargain. Whether your attorney can even achieve a deal depends on his willingness to work hard on your behalf by conducting his own investigation, interviewing potential witnesses and examining the physical evidence. And most importantly, he must get to know you to present you sympathetically to the prosecutor and the court. Timothy H. Hankins believes that no two cases and no two defendants are ever alike. We treat you as an individual: worthy of our attention, worthy of our efforts and worthy of consideration by the court.
