Also, I file additional pleadings when I have grounds to believe constitutional and statutory rights are being violated. Whether during an existing criminal case or brought separately in a civil case, I have nearly 20 years of experience in State court, and I have in recent years expanded into the Federal courts. I have brought challenges in the following areas: Due Process, Ex Post Facto, Free Speech, Cruel and Unusual Punishment, Ineffective Assistance of Counsel, and Unlawful Search and Seizure.
Bringing constitutional and statutory challenges, which are civil rights claims, requires many hours of research and drafting. So, rushing a constitutional and statutory claim is not prudent. Oftentimes, the facts are clear and straightforward; however, the law can be murky around the state and/or across the country.
In the end, I stand by our position to not rush cases, and yet to make sure our clients have all of the evidence. Informed decisions can make the difference in any case.
