Your Day in Court
Under the US Constitution, everyone accused of a crime has a right to a free and fair trial at which the defendant can contest the evidence against them and plead their own case. The exact procedures of this process, however, vary by state, and there are a set of informal rules that exist alongside written regulations.

The Cochran Firm's criminal defense lawyers will prepare you for court by:

  • Explaining the charges against youWe'll make sure you fully understand the ramifications of what you've been charged with, including potential sentencing guidelines. This information is crucial as you consider plea bargain possibilities.
  • Walking you through courtroom procedureOver our years as criminal defense attorneys, we've grown intimiately familiar with the regulations that govern trials and hearings. We will give you detailed, easy-to-understand information on what you can expect from the legal manueverings involved in a criminal trial.
  • Explaining the “unwritten rules”Participants in a criminal case are expected to handle themselves in a quiet, courteous fashion. This is particularly important for a defendant, who needs to make a good impression on a jury. Judges are kings in their courtooms, and many are sticklers about maintaining decorum.
  • Equipping you for courtOne of the unwritten rules of court is that defendants are expected to dress in a professional manner. Our criminal defense attorneys will arrange to have you provided with professional attire if you don't have anything appropriate.

Preparation is the key to success. At The Cochran Firm, our prep work is thorough and all-inclusive. When you're facing serious criminal charges, nothing less than a criminal defense attorney's complete attention and skilled representation is acceptable.
