Level the Playing Field
How a Hawaii Military Attorney Fights Back
As experienced military attorneys, we are fully informed as to the tactics
used by military law enforcement and prosecutors. If you are suspected
of a crime, or have been charged with one, you will need an accomplished
and hardworking Hawaii court martial defense attorney to help you level
the playing field. Here are the basic steps we take:
- In Person Meeting with Client and Initial Investigation: Other firms often
overlook this step but we have found it an essential ingredient to forming
the winning strategy for a case. Most other civilian defense firms will
only meet clients initially over the phone. They rarely, if ever, conduct
their own investigation of the case.
- Investigation: There is simply no way to effectively cross-examine a CID,
NCIS or OSI agent properly without visiting or documenting the crime scene,
locations where evidence was obtained or the interrogation room. We do
not depend on law enforcement to document evidence, especially if it threatens
their guilty verdict. We are meticulous in our investigation of the details
we discover. Our presentation of our findings at the Article 32 hearing
immediately informs witnesses that we will not be deceived or trapped by lies.
- Article 32 Hearing: The Article 32 hearing will determine if the case continues
to trial or not. Thorough and effective preparation may lead to dismissal
at this stage. When it does not, however, a skilled defense attorney will
not give away his defense strategy to the prosecution at this step, but
will use it to set the stage for an effective trial.
- Cross Examination at Trial: This is the most important step to winning
a case and you will want an attorney who has accomplished a mastery of
this skill. Powerful cross-examination begins with thorough and insightful
investigation. You do not want an attorney who is still cutting his teeth
on this vital step.
