How Our Criminal Defense Lawyers Can Help
Under the Constitution, you always have a right to an attorney. If you can’t afford a criminal defense lawyer, the state will appoint you one, usually from the local Public Defender’s Office.

These attorneys do remarkable work and are to be praised for their efforts. However, they are frequently over-worked and carry tremendous burdens. If at all possible you should retain your own counsel.

The criminal defense lawyers at The Cochran Firm can help you by:

  • Thoroughly, tirelessly investigating your case
  • Finding flaws and contradictions in the state’s account
  • Cross-examining witnesses and turning a skeptical eye on the prosecution’s evidence
  • Lining up witnesses, including credible experts, in your favor
  • Using our decades of experience to create the best possible legal strategy for you
  • Advising you on plea bargain offers from the prosecution
  • Using our knowledge of the relevant laws and precedents to challenge evidence and otherwise defend you

Our criminal defense lawyers will make sure you understand what to expect from the legal process. At this difficult time in your life, it’s crucial you have someone on your side you can trust completely.
