Why Hire A Former Prosecutor?

A prosecuting attorney learns certain specific skills, and much of their activities are spent in developing cases and in taking them to trial. There is nothing more valuable than trial experience, and an inside knowledge of how a prosecutor develops a case to pursue a conviction.

At Andritch & Aed, our founding attorney, Brian C. Andritch, served as Deputy City District Attorney for almost 8 years, and has a great insight into every aspect of a criminal case – including how the "other side" operates.

Fighting Back In Court

What does it mean to have trial experience? Some lawyers rarely take a case to court, or try to avoid it by getting involved in negotiating a plea. If you have a case that has the potential for a successful defense, whether it is a DUI, violent crime or Three Strikes offense or any other offense, the first step is to have the firm review the case. There are often serious errors in a prosecution's case – a former prosecutor knows how to identify the most effective strategy to employ for the defense.

The first step is to call the office and talk to the Fresno criminal defense lawyer. Early intervention could lead to a full dismissal in some cases.

Identifying A Defense Strategy For Your Case

A former prosecutor knows how a case can be pulled apart by the other side. In any criminal trial, the burden of proof lies with the prosecutor – they must prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt. The ability to open the door to doubt is a primary action of the defense. How this will take place for you will depend upon the circumstances and evidence in your case. Are the witnesses trustworthy, or do they have certain flaws that should be exposed to the jury, such as gaining an advantage in sentencing? Every detail about a key witness must be fully evaluated.

Challenging The Evidence In A Case

Law enforcement is generally trusted and very familiar with testifying in a criminal case. That doesn't mean they don't make mistakes, or never violate the rights of the criminally accused. Cross examination of witnesses is a skill that can make all the difference. When stories don't quite make sense, or several witnesses – whether police or other witness – are tripped up, it can mean progress for the case for your defense.
