Aggressive Criminal Defense Attorneys
At Plumides, Romano, Johnson & Cacheris, PC, we take an aggressive, strategic approach to criminal defense. We begin with the idea that each case is going to trial. By preparing cases for trial, we work through each detail upfront.
This allows us to prepare motions and pretrial work early so we can use it to negotiate with the prosecution. In some cases, the pretrial work reveals information that allows us to argue for the reduction or dismissal of the charges. If appropriate to the case, we work with experts in areas such as forensic evidence, DNA, fingerprints, computer forensics and psychiatry.

Can You Get Out On Bond?
It is important to have representation early in your case so bond/bail may be addressed. Depending on the charges, defendants typically have a right to bail/bond. Often a magistrate may have set a bond amount shortly after arrest. The prosecutor will give his or her bond recommendation at the hearing and the judge decides whether to grant, reduce or increase the bond amount. It is important to have aggressive, experienced representation to get a bond or a reduction as soon as possible so the defendant can have a chance of getting out of jail as soon as possible after arrest.
