If you have been picked up by the police, you are probably scared and unsure of how to defend yourself. You might not know any lawyers and are embarrassed to ask whom you should call. At Tanzillo Stassin & Babcock, we represent criminal defendants accused of a variety of crimes, and we always put our clients’ well-being first. Let us defend you.
The moments immediately following an arrest are some of the most important in your case. Many criminal suspects lose their cases in the days following an arrest. They make too many incriminating statements and admit to too many embarrassing facts—all of which the police and prosecutor will use against them. If you expect the police to treat you fairly, think again.
You need an aggressive criminal defense attorney who can:
Some criminal defense attorneys in Chesterton are happy to accept any plea deal offered by the state. They can then wash their hands of your case and move onto the next client.
At Tanzillo Stassin & Babcock, that is not our philosophy. We provide aggressive criminal defense tailored to each individual client. Admittedly, a plea deal is often the best outcome our clients can expect. By pleading to a lesser charge, they save themselves time in jail and might even avoid being labeled a felon.
However, we are not afraid to force the state to take your case to trial, where we are prepared to convince a jury that you are not guilty of the charges brought. Because of our aggressive approach, prosecutors know that they will have their hands full if they try to convict you in court.
Our criminal defense lawyers have broad experience in the following areas of criminal law:
We also have experience defending clients for alleged probation violations. We can help explain to the judge why the violation was not your fault so that you can avoid going to jail.
Criminal convictions ruin lives. Criminal defendants face not only time in jail and heavy fines, but their criminal history can make it that much harder to get a job or apartment in the future. With so much on the line, why settle for an inexperienced criminal defense lawyer?
