Volusia County Pretrial Motions Lawyer
In the hands of an experienced criminal defense attorney, a pretrial motion can be a powerful tool to exclude certain types of evidence from a future trial or to get the case dismissed altogether. Here are only a few examples of pretrial motions a defense lawyer might bring:
- Asking the judge to exclude drug paraphernalia that police obtained through illegal search and seizure in the defendant’s home
- Requesting that the defendant’s confession be excluded from the trial because law enforcement failed to read the defendant his Miranda rights before questioning him
- Asking the judge to dismiss the case because law enforcement did not have probable cause to make an arrest
The Law Offices of Bradley S. Sherman handles a wide range of criminal charges, including white collar crimes, all DUI offenses, all drug offenses, all sexual crimes, all theft and property offenses, all juvenile offenses and all homicide crimes such as capital death penalty murder, DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide.
Many times, people don’t have enough money to pay for an attorney plus witness deposition transcripts and other trial expenses. If that describes you, don’t worry. Our law firm has significant experience utilizing free resources and getting the court to cover many costs — so that you don’t have to pay a cent more than necessary.
Using a Pretrial Motion to Your Advantage
As a Volusia County pretrial motions attorney, Mr. Sherman is not hesitant to go to court to protect your rights if you face criminal charges in state or federal court. Board certified in criminal trial law by the Florida Bar, he is experienced in the strategy of pretrial motions. Whether he is negotiating with the prosecution, conducting discovery, taking a deposition or issuing a subpoena, you can count on him to do everything possible to strengthen your case.
If a prosecutor fails to disclose certain facts or is deliberately ignorant of law enforcement’s evidence, you need an aggressive defense attorney who can compel the prosecution to turn over all the evidence.
A pretrial motion can also allow you to avoid prosecutorial abuse at trial by bringing matters to the judge’s attention beforehand. An experienced attorney like Mr. Sherman can anticipate problems and proactively address them.
