Pleading Guilty?


When a dismissal is unattainable, the best way to resolve a criminal case is often with a plea agreement. Nearly 99% of all criminal cases end with a guilty plea. However, entering a guilty plea is not the same as giving up. A good criminal defense attorney knows negotiating and obtaining the best possible deal for his client requires time, skill, dedication and years of experience.
