The decision as to whether you have a trial and whether you make the government prove their allegations beyond a reasonable doubt is yours. You need the guidance of a terrific attorney who has done this before...many times over. You need confidence that your attorney can and will expose the weaknesses in the government's case and will present your case to the jury effectively. An experienced attorney who understands the law, cares about your case and works hard can literally save you from years in prison. If you are innocent or if the government simply has problems with their case, it could save you the conviction altogether.

"If you have ever met a man locked away for things he didn't do, then you know. That is a tragedy. I never want to see that happen to anyone. I certainly don't want that to happen to a client of mine."
- Trey Pettlon

Pre-Trial Negotiations, Bench Trials, Jury Trials

Both Trey and Ryan have represented clients in numerous trials to juries and judges. Since they both have worked as prosecutors and for the defense, they understand the trial tactics and abilities prosecutors will use. They also know what it will take to get the best result. Because so much is at stake for our clients we always carefully research and discuss every possible defense, legal issue and likely outcome of the case, so our clients can make well-informed decisions about whether we should have a trial or minimize the damage with motions or negotiations. After all, it's our client's case and our client's rights. If you desire a trial of your case to a jury or a judge, our attorneys are skilled, experienced trial lawyers. If you wish to have the case resolved quickly and discreetly without trial, our attorneys are zealous advocates and skilled negotiators.
