Criminal Practice

Being thrust into the criminal courts can be an unsettling and emotional experience, not just for our client, but for our client’s family as well.  We treat every client and their family with respect and understanding during these trying times.  We value our relationships with our clients, which is why we always make ourselves available to them and their families.  Our clients are our priority and we treat them that way.

Criminal Trial, Appellate and Post-Conviction Practice in Federal and State Court

Our attorneys have defended clients in hundreds of jury trials during our decades of trial practice in both the federal and state courts.  The differences between practicing in the federal and state courts are significant and it is important to have attorneys that understand these differences.

We view every case and every client as unique because they are unique.  We keep this view in mind when we set out to attack the prosecution’s case.  Our legal work is top notch.  We pride ourselves on engaging in exhaustive research in order to uncover the factual and legal arguments that will turn the tide.

We are also sensitive to the collateral matters associated with criminal cases.  These collateral matters include sentencing considerations, tax consequences, license ramifications and other consequences that our experienced attorneys are prepared to handle.      

Appellate and other post-conviction proceedings (e.g. habeas corpus, motions for new trial) are another area where Butters Brazilian has experienced tremendous success.  Our detailed research and persuasive legal writing have been paramount to our success in these areas.   

Government Investigations

Butters Brazilian also represents persons and corporations that are targets of government investigations.   Pre-indictment representation is crucial to avoid criminal charges.  The government’s view of your case may be unintentionally skewed.  Having someone to advocate your position can be the difference between an indictment and a decision not to prosecute.   At Butters Brazilian we have successfully convinced the government to not prosecute our clients by putting forth the same level of commitment to avoid a prosecution as we do to defending against one.
