"Whenever possible, I believe in an aggressive defense aimed at obtaining a dismissal or reduction of the charge. When appropriate, I will challenge the admissibility of evidence and the truthfulness of witnesses through pre-trial motions and  hearings. Outright victory is never impossible; however, certain cases warrant aggressive negotiation. In every case, I work to build the strongest  defense possible, designed to protect your rights, preserve your freedom and obtain the best result."

■ DO NOT  delay. Generally, the sooner a Criminal Defense Lawyer is brought into a criminal case or investigation, the better potential results
for the client.
■ DO NOT seek answers to questions about your legal rights  from police officers and prosecutors who do not have a legal duty to act in a suspect’s best interest.

■  DO NOT gamble while your freedom is at stake. A serious criminal charge can have a defendant fighting for his or her fundamental freedom. Contact ERIC KINSMAN, a skilled and knowledgeable Criminal Defense Lawyer who will stand up for your legal rights.
