Winning Criminal Defense Attorney
Being a “winning criminal defense attorney” does not always mean winning at trial, keeping a client out of jail, or preventing them from losing their job or children. “Winning” differs with each client and what is essential in that person’s life. A recent client of LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. was in poor health and had been told by a judge that she would do the maximum amount of jail time possible. The client hired another lawyer who could not convince the judge to reduce the client’s pending jail sentence by a single day despite months of trying. When things looked most desperate is where LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. stepped in. When the client released the former lawyer and hired us, we developed a new strategy and went about doing everything possible to keep this client out of jail altogether. The client had severe medical needs, and the jail’s medical care is awful (at best).
Ultimately, we were successful, and the client got straight probation with NO JAIL. The judge said, “Even I cannot believe I am not giving you jail time. Rarely, if ever, have I seen a lawyer work so hard to keep a client out of jail.” Needless to say, the client was thrilled. Here is the email she sent after getting home from court:
How a Winning Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help You
How many golf clubs does a professional golfer carry in their bag? Not just one, right? A pro golfer would not be at their best if they only had one club. A great golfer has multiple clubs available for many different purposes. Similarly, a winning criminal defense attorney must have the ability to switch tactics seemingly and as necessary to obtain the best result for their client. A great defense lawyer is not just a pit bull limited to aggressively and aimlessly fighting with everyone. The best criminal defense lawyers can aggressively fight when necessary and, when needed, negotiate skillfully, effectively persuade, tactfully convince, and modify the approach seamlessly and as required. The lawyer must know what to do based on an intuitive and accurate sense of the best approach in every situation. The Defense Team with LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. takes great pride in being on top of the latest law and using their skills to obtain the best possible results for each client.

Note: The client’s name and identifying information have been removed from the email to protect the client’s identity. The judge assigned to the case was the Hon. Kimberly Small in the 48th Judicial District Court in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. Judge Small is an incredibly tough judge that many lawyers avoid at all costs. In our experience, although she is tough, she is thoughtful and reasonable. She can be persuaded to be merciful if a lawyer provides her truthful, credible reasons to deviate from a jail sentence or an extensive jail sentence.
