Even now, months after our victory in an Anne Arundel manslaughter case, fellow lawyers approach us and ask how we were able to be victorious against the Government in what appeared to be a strong case against the Defendant. In fact, the prosecutor is still scratching his head and wondering the same thing. The answer, as is typically the case is meticulous preparation that goes well beyond the case itself.
Our attorneys go beyond the normal reading of the facts, investigation, preparation and presentation to a judge or jury. We routinely and consistently attend seminars by the Nations leading trial attorneys in order to uncover the latest trial techniques and strategies to put the Government to the task of proving its case. Unfortunately, for the DUI/Criminal defendant, the deck is always stacked against the accused because the Government has endless resources to secure their ends (a conviction) and most jurors walk into the court room with a bias against the accused which the defense must overcome in order to secure, at a minimum, a level playing field.
In order to overcome jury bias and the state's relentless resources, we understand that the defense must work that much harder to prove our client's innocence, just as we did in the above noted manslaughter case. We are proud to inform our clients that at Robinson and Associates, we read and study the treatises from the greatest trial advocates of our time, we seek them out and listen to them speak all over the country, and we bring that knowledge and skill to bear for our clients in Maryland. The picture embedded herein is none other than myself with F. Lee Bailey, speaking at a recent seminar on behalf of the National College for DUI Defense Attorneys.
