    Why Hire A Trial Lawyer?

    Trying to defend yourself can be a costly mistake. Too many times people think they know the law and how to get out of a situation. Working with a trail lawyer provides you with the best possible defense to avoid the worst possible outcomes. How can an experienced trial lawyer help? In three ways:

    An experienced trial lawyer knows how to work with you and the evidence. Then the lawyer can evaluate the evidence to explain how it will be presented to the jury and what that means to you. From there a trial lawyer can work with the prosecutor and objectively evaluate a plea offer that may be presented.

    Some evidence a prosecutor wants to use is inadmissible. As an experienced trial lawyer Jeffrey Burnham can help suppress evidence to give you a fair trial.

    Finally, a seasoned lawyer knows that the law can be a tricky thing. An untrained criminal lawyer may overlook new case law for statutory changes that could be used to weaken the prosecution's case. When a prosecutor's case has several holes punched through it by a competent, aggressive defense attorney, it is the client who has the upper hand. This gives you more control and peace of mind.
