Backed by 15 Years' Experience as a Former State Prosecutor Specialized in Criminal Defense

Pleaing Without Going To Court

Limiting a client's appearance in court on certain charges can often be accomplished by filing a plea in absentia. This means that the defendant enters into a written plea agreement that is accepted by the court without the defendant even being present in court. This can be very valuable to a client that lives out of State or travels extensively. See negotiating a plea bargain and negotiating a withhold of adjudication for further details.
