If you hired this law firm to represent you in your case, Matthew wants to know as much about your case as possible. We understand that being arrested and charged with a crime can be very traumatic and uncomfortable. We request that our clients prepare the “statement of the case” and supply that to the attorney in order to memorialize the events of the case. The statement is essentially the Defense version of the “report of the incident” and is helpful for the lawyer’s file.
Criminal cases can take months to resolve and our client’s memory of the events can be crucial. Writing down those events will help the client recall as well as help the attorney have an easy source to read their version of events. This statement is used exclusively for legal representation and will be completely confidential. Include any and all positive facts you can remember along with any mitigating information that may help to explain the conduct police are accusing you of.
For your convenience, you can e-mail the statement to the attorney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
