Being Arrested Is An Extremely Traumatic Experience
We at Foos Gavin Law Firm Care And Will Help You
Being arrested and charged with a crime may be one of the most traumatic events of your life. If it is a loved one of yours that has been arrested in may be equally traumatic. If it is you that has been taken to jail you may need help in finding a reliable bail bondsman to get your release from custody. Where we at Foos Gavin Law can step in is to help you to obtain a fast, reliable bail bondsman at the cheapest possible price to you and who will put you through the least amount of hassle. Because of the relationships we have developed we can refer you to someone that will take care of you well, and at a reduced price.
If you are not able to make the original bail set by the jail we can work with you to provide the facts and arguments to the Court to enable the Judge to lower your bail. Once you contact us we will come to the jail immediately to consult with you and to begin to strategize as to how to get you the best possible outcome on your matter. Once we have met with you we will contact your loved ones to let them know how you are doing and also to begin to gather facts that will help us in defending you.
How We Will Defend Your Case
The first thing we will do is go over the charges with you and let you know what the prosecution has to prove to find you guilty and how much time is involved if you are convicted of the charged offense. We will talk with you and get your side of the story, and let you identify any witnesses for us that may help your case. Once you have provided the names and contact information for the witnesses, we will have one of our investigators find the witnesses and take their statements. Once we review the witnesses’ statements, if they are favorable to you, we will discuss with you providing the statements to the prosecution so that we can begin to educate the prosecution on your side of the story and to throw doubt on their case against you. Some of the witnesses I may interview myself to gather information and get a flavor of how that witness might come off.
In some cases, the scene of the crime may play an important roll in the defense of the case. If so, we will go out to investigate and photograph the scene of the alleged crime. We will take videos and make diagrams that will help explain your case.
Hands on, Personal Approach
We seek to bond with our clients and really understand their stories. We want to know what makes them tick, so that we can better explain their stories to the prosecution or if necessary, to a jury. We will meet with you frequently, and we are always open to calls from you or your family. If it benefits you, we will help you get substance abuse, or psychological counselling. We will have our investigators speak to your friends and family in an effort to gather helpful information about you. We always will take your phone call, or get back to you as soon as possible.
Expert Analysis of Your Case
To best defend you, you need an attorney that can perform an expert analysis of your case. We at Foos Gavin will analyze each aspect of the criminal charge and determine ways that we can attack the prosecution’s case. If the police conduct was unacceptable, we will look for a way to suppress the evidence you. If it will help defend your case we will file written arguments to the case that your case should be dismissed for some legal violation.
If there is a possible mental defense, for example, because of some mental defect or intoxication you did not understand what you were doing, we will look to defend the case on that basis. When helpful, we will hire a psychologist to interview you and write a report to the Court. If there is no way to win your case outright, we will analyze the possible sentences that you may face, and advise you on whether a plea bargain is in your best interest.
Taking the Case To Trial
We will advise you whether it is in your best interest to accept a plea bargain or to take your case to trial. Our lawyers are trial-tested and ready to fight your case before a jury. David Foos has over 60 jury trials and has a high success rate. Mr. Foos is experienced to presenting a case to a jury and will present the best possible case.
The Experience That Counts
David Foos has been a practicing criminal defense attorney for 38 years. Mr. Foos served 8 years as a Deputy Public Defender where he defended people accused of all types of crimes from Driving Under the Influence to thefts, to assaults, to sex crimes. Mr. Foos handled thousands of cases. After serving as a “P.D.” Mr. Foos was appointed to be a Judicial Officer in Sacramento. David served 16 years wearing the black robe and sat on all types of cases from misdemeanors, to D.U.I.s, to juvenile delinquency, to felonies. For one year Mr. Foos was the judicial officer who heard most of the Driving Under the Influence cases in Sacramento. In serving as a Public Defender and a Judicial Officer in Sacramento, Mr. Foos developed a wealth of relationships and contacts that he can put to use to assist you in your cases. Mr. Foos is an “insider” in the criminal justice system and his knowledge can greatly benefit you in your case.
What If You Are Being Investigated, But Haven’t Yet Been Charged
Many people that are being investigated for a crime, but haven’t yet been charged, will benefit themselves by consulting with an experienced criminal defense attorney. Mr. Foos can provide you with advice that will benefit you in your police contacts, and if you wish, he can intervene for you with the criminal investigators. Often, Mr. Foos will advise you that it is not in your best interest to speak to the police and that you should invoke your constitutional rights. Nevertheless, it often is very valuable that you speak to a criminal defense attorney.
Advice If You Are Incarcerated
One of the best pieces of advice if you are in jail is to never discuss your case with anybody other than your criminal defense attorney. When you make a phone call or have a visit (accept with your attorney) the interaction is always recorded and can and will be used against you in Court. I have seen many cases fall on the statements that the prosecution have gathered from jailhouse calls or visits. The best advice is to save any discussion of your case for your attorney.
No one wants to get entangled in the criminal justice system. But, if you or a loved one have been criminally charged, you want an experienced, skilled attorney on your side. David Foos has the experience, the know-how, and the contacts in the system that will best benefit you in your case. Feel free to contact me and discuss your case on a no-cost basis.
