"Winning a case depends not only on the circumstances of your charges but upon how well it is presented to a judge, a jury or a prosecutor. You need experience on your side. You need a strong reputation on your side. You need an attorney who has had continued success in the courtroom by concentrating on only one area of the law - criminal law.”
