Criminal cases are not like other legal cases. So much more is on the line: Your freedom. Your reputation. Your future. If the state has accused you of participating in a crime, you need a talented criminal defense attorney in your corner. At Tanzillo Stassin & Babcock, our lawyers have handled hundreds of criminal cases, and we are anxious to put our experience to work for you.
Our criminal defense lawyers in Valparaiso have represented clients accused of many different offenses, including:
Our approach is not to passively wait for the case to play out or wait for the prosecutor to hand us a favorable plea deal. Instead, we intensely investigate your case, marshaling evidence in your favor that the prosecutor has overlooked—or has hidden out of view.
At Tanzillo Stassin & Babcock, we also help clients move on with their lives by expunging criminal offenses from their records. The sad fact is that a criminal history can make it difficult to do any of the following:
Even after you have repaid your debt to society, a criminal conviction can continue to follow you around like a shadow. By expunging the offense, no member of the public can see it. It is as if it has disappeared, freeing you to answer honestly that you do not have a criminal history.
Many criminal suspects make confessions or other incriminating statements while in police custody. Anything you say can be used against you. Unfortunately, too many of our clients thought they could outsmart the police and end up taking polygraph exams or admitting to facts that are not true. As a result, they sign their own conviction.
By “lawyering up” as soon as you are considered a suspect, you gain a significant tactical advantage and can make it hard for the state to prosecute you. Do not leave your defense to chance. Instead, hire a Valparaiso criminal defense attorney today.
