Successful Defense of a criminal case depends on the ability of the defense attorney to be prepared to take a case to trial and to craft a defense based upon the law and facts of a case. At the Fennell Firm, we recognize that many cases are resolved by negotiation prior to trial, but we are convinced that having a trial plan improves the odds of a favorable negotiation and gives the client a more realistic benchmark for evaluation of the risks of a trial compared to the realities of a negotiated result. More importantly, our willingness to try cases and our reputation as fierce opponents in the Courtroom help us negotiate better outcomes for our clients.
