Building a strong defense in self-defense cases begins long before the parties enter the courtroom. Here are key preemptive strategies we employ that can mitigate your charges or lead to your case being dismissed:

At the outset, our priority is to establish a thorough history between the parties involved. In cases where the individuals are acquainted, delving into the relationship’s history is critical. This involves investigating any prior instances of violence between the client and others, understanding the alleged victim’s history of aggression or threats, and examining any social or documented criminal history.

Understanding our client’s state of mind is vital to effectively negotiate or present a case at trial. We work closely with them to comprehend why they felt compelled to use force, the circumstances leading to that decision, and the imminent threat they perceived.

Careful negotiation with prosecutors requires a delicate balance. While avoiding revealing too much information, we strive to develop a robust self-defense claim supported by impartial facts, individuals, and direct evidence. This thorough approach can prompt prosecutors to consider dismissing the case, anticipating challenges in disproving self-defense at trial.

Thoroughly investigating the alleged victim’s history is essential, even if some findings may not be admissible in court. Presenting this information to the prosecution can reshape their perception of the alleged victim, challenging preconceived notions and potentially leading to case dismissal.

Early interviews with our clients, sometimes facilitated by a social worker or a psychology expert, aid in understanding the client’s motivations. Trauma from past experiences can significantly influence their reactions, and a nuanced understanding of these factors strengthens our arguments for the reasonableness of their actions.

Clear communication with clients is imperative. Early on, we emphasize that discussing the case with anyone other than their legal counsel risks compromising the defense. This ensures consistency in statements and prevents inadvertent disclosures that may harm the defense strategy.

Anticipating potential character evidence issues, we proactively develop a history of our client’s peaceful and non-violent behavior. This includes exploring any history of violence to prepare for potential challenges in negotiations or trials.

In essence, a meticulously investigated case best positions the defense for success. By strategically presenting evidence and framing narratives, we aim to convince prosecutors of the viability of a self-defense claim, paving the way for favorable resolutions or dismissals.
