Diligence Helps Lead To Results

Investigation is important in criminal defense cases. He will review the facts. He will review the evidence that the prosecutor has against you. How strong is the evidence? Does it really prove what the prosecutor says it proves? Was it even obtained legally? In many cases, investigation reveals that police overstepped their bounds and violated the accused individual's constitutional rights. If Joseph R. Kemp finds reason to believe that you were the victim of illegal search and seizure, he will request that evidence be discarded and your case dismissed.

Often, improved results are merely a matter of negotiation. For example, if you were accused of shoplifting or another minor crime and it was your first offense, Joseph R. Kemp will make certain the prosecutor knows your story. He will negotiate for minimal penalties so this one mistake does not impact you for the rest of your life.
