WHY HIRE A FORMER PROSECUTOR

WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE A FORMER PROSECUTOR

Why A Former Prosecutor Makes The Best Defense Attorney

Choosing a criminal defense attorney can be complicated — where do you even start? Some attorneys boast about being a former prosecutor, but how much does that really matter? Here are some of the benefits of having a former prosecutor as your criminal defender:

 

  • They have been through this process before (many times). Perhaps the biggest benefit of having a former prosecutor by your side is experience and knowledge of the justice system. Louis Campola has seen numerous criminal trials play out in his many years of trying them, and understands precisely how they operate, giving him trusted insight into planning your defense.

  • They understand how prosecutors build their cases. If your criminal defense attorney has never been a prosecutor, they may not be able to foresee the prosecution's strategy & tactics. This could put you at a disadvantage during trial.

  • They know the local courts and judges. Courts and judges each have a unique track record when it comes to certain kinds of cases. By having a thorough understanding of local courts and the judges that preside over them, Louis can better anticipate what defense will work best for your charge.

  • The specific circumstances of the charges against you are unique to you and only you, but many of the previous cases Louis has prosecuted have been very similar to your unique case.  Louis knows exactly what you are going through now, and has prosecuted the same charges that you now face. With more than 15 years of vast criminal law experience, he has tried hundreds of trials, and over 30 of them juries, many of which achieved a favorable outcome with a high percentage of outright wins.

  • A former prosecutor knows police practices, procedures, and internal police politics.  They know how to comb through prosecutorial evidence and find any mistakes or omissions that will work to your benefit.  Louis' inside knowledge means an advantage for you.

  • Louis has a unique perspective on how the government gathers evidence and how they will attempt to present that evidence in court. Working with hundreds of police officers and investigators throughout the years, Louis knows firsthand the techniques and manners in which evidence is supposed to be gathered. Sometimes a simple and honest mistake by a law enforcement officer in the gathering of evidence or other information can drastically affect how your case resolves and what evidence may be available against you.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF HAVING FORMER PROSECUTOR LOUIS CAMPOLA AND HIS YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AS YOUR DEFENSE ATTORNEY?

  • Louis understands how prosecutors and law enforcement think. He knows from experience what motivates them, what interests them, and how they function behind the scenes during the investigative and prosecutorial process. In fact, Louis has actually taught law enforcement so he knows exactly what they should be doing procedurally.
