Achieve the best result possible for your case
A top criminal defense attorney will look at every aspect of your case to check if the police, the prosecution, and the judge follow the law and respect your rights. In some instances, it is possible to get illegally obtained evidence suppressed which could mean the government is left with insufficient evidence to prove their case and they must dismiss. If each and every element of the crime you are charged with cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, the Law Office of Amy Chapman can take your case all the way to jury trial and argue for a full acquittal. However, not every criminal case can end in an acquittal or a dismissal. When the government can prove the case against you, you still need to fight for the most favorable outcome possible.

We can work with the prosecutors and the judges to reach a fair and reasonable disposition that you can live with.
