Hiring a former prosecutor to represent you gives you several advantages. A veteran prosecutor understands how cases progress from the moment of the arrest to the end of the trial and potential appeal process. Because prosecutors typically work behind the scenes with police officers and criminalists they develop first-hand knowledge of law enforcement’s investigation techniques. They understand how evidence is collected and processed. Someone who has been a prosecutor understands how the District Attorney or City Attorney decide to file charges and how they build their case to go to trial. This allows a former prosecutor working for you to know where the other side may be weak in your case and use that to your advantage.
