Your lawyer should hire a private investigator. It doesn’t take long in being a criminal defense lawyer to realize how valuable a private investigator can be. In our firm, we have a private investigator in nearly every felony case and oftentimes misdemeanor and gross misdemeanor cases as well. But investigations by the police are often quick, evidence is looked over, witnesses are not talked to so having a private investigator to go back, to review the evidence with your lawyer, and to go find exculpatory evidence for you oftentimes can significantly result in a dismissal of the charges or a favorable plea agreement. We’ve had cases from DWI to murder where we’ve convinced prosecutors that they either had the wrong guy or they looked over some evidence that should have been considered before charging.
