Using the Criminal Trial Process to Your Advantage

In the American criminal justice system, the burden of proof often falls on the prosecution, not on the accused. This means that in order for you to be convicted, the prosecution has to supply ample evidence to show how and why you are guilty for the alleged criminal violation. At the Law Office of Jeffrey G. Hester, we use a multisided defense strategy to do all we can to protect your rights and increase your chances of a positive outcome to your case.

We will work closely with you to build a defense that uses both of the following tactics:

Reaction: Due to the fact that the prosecution has the burden of proof, they can sometimes be hasty to come up with an argument, or they make stretches that are just nonsensical or invalid. By listening carefully to the opposition and fully understanding their case, we can react to it accordingly, exploit the weaknesses in their arguments, and dismantle any accusations. If their claims are not perfect, they should not be good enough to justify a conviction or sentencing of any kind.

Initiative: More than just waiting to see the missteps of the prosecution, our Birmingham criminal defense lawyer knows how to use aggression to go on the offensive, actively taking steps to have your charges dropped or sentence reduced. With an in-depth analysis of the evidence and persuasive cross-examination and questioning abilities, Attorney Hester can make the first move in your case or trial to defend you.
