Philosophy

At the criminal defense law firm of Lawrence R. Dworkin, we live by the golden rule: treat others as you want to be treated. As criminal defense lawyers, this means that we serve clients and provide them with the type of legal services and representation that we would want if we were facing criminal charges.

We understand the serious and life changing consequences associated with an arrest or conviction of a crime. We know that any jail time, any probation or any loss of your driver’s license can have a devastating impact on your career prospects, reputation, relationships and life. We know how scary this can be for people who are arrested or who have family members who are arrested and our aim is not only to help you to achieve the most favorable outcome, but to reduce the stress involved with any interaction with the criminal justice system.

Our Philosophy and Representing Clients

Many firms promise that they understand the stress involved with an arrest or accusation, and many say that they have their clients best interests at heart- but we have the experience and the success stories to prove that we mean what we say. For more than 30-years, we have been vigorously fighting for the rights of clients and we have been putting the firm’s philosophy of providing the representation we’d hope to receive.

So, what does this mean for you and how does this translate into the type of legal representation we can provide?

  • We will keep you informed throughout the post-arrest process so you know what to expect and so you can be involved in making choices about your own defense.
  • We will take the time to answer questions and to explain the arrest and trial process so there are no surprises.
  • We will fight to get you reasonable bail so you can be home with your family and performing your job while you await trial.
  • We will vigorously protect your constitutional rights and take action to prove any wrongs that were done by law enforcement, including illegal searches and seizures.
  • We will defend you in trial whenever it makes sense to take a case to court and we will do everything possible to avoid conviction.

These are just a few of the promises that we make to our clients and that help us to put our firm philosophy into action. In every case, and with every decision we make, we focus on how we can best serve you and best act as your advocate in the criminal justice system.

Remember, when you are arrested, the state is prosecuting you and has all of the government’s resources at its disposal. You need to have your own experienced legal representation to stand a fighting chance against this powerful force.
