Central Valley criminal defense attorney M. Richard Alvarez believes that the best defense is a good offense. That is why he has local valley investigators on hand to assist in the creation of a strong and aggressive defensive strategy, whatever the charges may be. The stronger the defense, the harder the prosecution will have to work to prove the defense attorney's client guilt. Therefore, showing the district attorney’s office that their case is weak and that we have a strong defense to the charge(s) will force the prosecutors to dismiss the case against you, or offer a plea bargain that is acceptable to you. Similarly, criminal defense attorney M. Richard Alvarez may use toxicologists, identification (ID) experts, gang experts, forced confession analysts, medical professionals, and various other experts to weaken a prosecutor’s case and force a dismissal or plea bargain that favors you. Lastly, attorney Alvarez believes that going on the offensive can prevent charges from ever being filed in the first place. From the time you are arrested up until the day of your first court hearing, the wheels of the justice system start to turn. The arresting agency completes their investigation and then meets with the local prosecutors to discuss the filing of criminal charges. Attorney M. Richard Alvarez believes that this “pre-filing” period is an opportunity to let the prosecutors know that there is more to this story than what the officer wrote in his arrest report. If we can provide facts or witnesses that can make the filing prosecutor rethink bringing charges, we can prevent a long drawn-out battle in court and end your nightmare right away.
