An Experienced Approach To Criminal Defense And Family Law
Beat them on the facts: The first step in any effective criminal defense is to get down to the facts of the case. In your free and completely confidential initial consultation, please be prepared to discuss the facts of your case — how the arrest happened, how you were questioned, what the police said or did. If we can beat them on the facts, chances are good that the charges will be dropped.
Beat them on the law: Police and prosecutors frequently make mistakes. Proving that police officers conducted an unlawful search and seizure or a traffic stop without probable cause or based on racial profiling can be enough to have charges dismissed. The law is there to protect your rights, and we will fight hard to make sure that happens.
Negotiate or litigate a favorable outcome: We prepare each case with the understanding that it may go to trial, even though many are settled to our clients' benefit before that point. Preparation and strength are crucial to both successful negotiation and winning at trial.Contact the Law Office Of Allen E Schwartz today for a free initial consultation. Regardless of the nature of your legal challenge, our firm is here to offer sound legal advice, personal support and dedicated representation. Call now.
Very professional and great experience.Mr Schwartz represented me in Knox County.I will highly recommend him to my family and friends.
Mr. Schwartz was very professional and well prepared. He handled a case for me and my brother a couple of years ago and I was very satisfied. He always returned my phone calls within a day and gave good advice that really helped. I plan to use him again shortly as well on another matter and will add that review as well.
Outstanding service and personal attention - Allen Schwartz
My legal issues were complex requiring a clear understanding of the problem as well as knowledge of law and a keen awareness of the court system. Fortunately for me Mr. Schwartz was well versed in each of these areas. Throughout the process, which took several months, Mr. Schwartz provided me with both reassurance and a belief that he was personally invested in working toward a positive outcome. The great news is that due to Mr. Schwartz' efforts we were successful in achieving that goal. Thank you!
