Beating the government in a criminal case is not just about fighting hard, it’s about fighting smart. In the vast majority of criminal prosecutions, the government is able to spend vast sums of money to investigate the case, interview witnesses, analyze physical evidence, and solidify weaknesses in their case. Most defendants (like most Americans in general) lack the financial resources to go toe-to-toe with the government. That is why it is imperative that a person charged with a crime must have a lawyer who is able to identify and exploit weaknesses in the government’s case. Even with nearly unlimited resources, the government rarely builds a perfect case. An experienced lawyer who thinks strategically about every case will be able to identify common mistakes that police and investigators make and exploit those mistakes for their client’s advantage. Government investigators routinely mishandle evidence, conduct illegal searches, rush to judgment, or fail to interview key witnesses. These kinds of mistakes can lead to acquittals, dismissals, or significant reductions in charges. So even if a defendant cannot outspend the government, with the help of a lawyer who is able to out-think, out-work, and outwit the government, a defendant can often prevail in court.
