In Municipal Court you are presumed innocent of all charges filed against you. The State has the burden of proving each element of every charge beyond a reasonable doubt or the presumption of innocence will not shift away from you; you are innocent.
The State has a Prosecutor, an experienced criminal attorney, representing its interests, trying to convict you.
When you hire Jay Weinberg you will have an experienced, hard working defense attorney prepared to deal with the Prosecutor and defend all charges against you.
Preparing for trial (even if you don’t want a trial – preparation is the key to a good resolution) and putting the State to its burden of proving every element of an offense beyond a reasonable doubt and negotiating the vast array of fines, penalties and other consequences of a possible plea agreement can be a complicated task. We are well versed in the law and the procedures utilized by the different Judges, Prosecutors and Court personnel.
We have the experience, knowledge and desire to represent you, protect your legal rights and keep the Prosecutor on notice of the State’s obligation to prove every element of the charges against you. These dynamics allow us to work with the Prosecutor in an effort to often save the time and expense of trial by way of a favorable plea bargain, while preparing for trial if it is required. We take your case very seriously and appreciate your selection of our law firm to represent you.
