In every criminal case, whether state or federal, the prosecution is represented by an attorney who does nothing but practice criminal law in that court.
And in every criminal case, the defendants not only stand to lose their freedom, but can also suffer other collateral effects, such as loss of work, loss of driving privileges, inability to pay rent, and even removal from the United States. In light of these stakes, it is vital that anybody facing any criminal charge seeks the best representation he or she can get.
Rob Sussman and Robert Behrens have litigated criminal cases in state and federal court for nearly forty years combined, defending people in some of the most complex cases, ranging from DUI to murder. Attorney Sussman has been recognized by Superlawyers and Avvo, and as a serious felony unit attorney currently represents individuals in some of the most widely-publicized cases in the state. Robert Behrens has also represented people in serious, high-profile cases throughout the state. We can guide you through every step of the process.
Prior to arrest, we can represent you and act as your spokesman with the police or the prosecutor. At your arraignment, when everything is new and intimidating, we will fight to protect you against efforts by the prosecution to incarcerate you while you are awaiting trial.
During the discovery phase, we will review every piece of evidence the prosecution plans to use against you and investigate every lead and witness to support your defense. We are also highly experienced motion practitioners, and will file every appropriate motion to either dismiss the case or to exclude the prosecution evidence being used against you.
And if your case goes to jury trial, we will fight every last measure to attain an acquittal. Indeed, although most cases do not go to trial, the criminal law attorneys at Behrens, Venman & Sussman have tried many dozens of cases to verdict, making them a known trial threat.
Please call us at (802) 658-5900, whether you have already been arrested or fear that you are being investigated by the police. In the meantime, be sure to tell the police that you will not speak to them without your attorney present.
