How to Defend a Felony Case, Part 6: Pretrial Conference

Part 5: Character Building: Defend the person not just the crime

At Wallin & Klarich, we have defended thousands of people in southern California against felony charges. One of the questions we are frequently asked is what an attorney can do to defend them against felony charges. We have already discussed the first few steps in defending a criminal felony charge.

The sixth step in defending a felony charge is the readiness conference, also called a pretrial conference. This is the next court hearing. At this hearing, typically your lawyer will meet with the prosecutor and the judge to discuss the case. They will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence. They will discuss the equities and fairness issues. They will also discuss what evidence has yet to be revealed. If there is some evidence that your lawyer wants but has not yet received from the prosecutor, then that will be brought up and requested. They will also discuss possible resolutions to the case. Your lawyer will try to get the entire case dismissed or some charges dismissed or reduced to lesser charges, including misdemeanors. If a dismissal is impossible, they may discuss possible sentence and of course your lawyer will use all the best arguments for the least sentence allowed by law.

The attorneys at Wallin & Klarich have the skills and expertise to provide you with the best possible defense to your felony case. Our experienced felony crime defense attorneys can be reached by phone at 1-888-749-0034. We will be there when you call.
