Our Approach to Criminal Defense
In many law firms, you will be handled by a law clerk or assistant. This is not the way this firm operates. Your case will be handled by a professional, licensed attorney, and every aspect of the case is thoroughly reviewed and evaluated, seeking out the flaws in the case against you. Most cases have some degree of doubt that could be expanded and exploited in the defense of the client. Law enforcement errors, violation of rights, lab errors: each detail of the case will be completely assessed with the intention of discovering a viable defense strategy.
The firm has a policy regarding communication between the client and the firm, which is the "callback" policy. Unfortunately, many clients that have come to the firm have had the experience at other firms of paying the fees and then being unable to get a return call. This would violate office policy and this policy is strictly maintained. You will always be "in the loop" when you are represented by a criminal defense lawyer from the Law Office of Leslie Boykin.
