Assertive Orlando Criminal Defense Attorney
Advocating for Your Rights
Getting arrested can be a horrifying experience. It can affect every aspect of your life, including your employment, the relationship you have with your family, and your entire future. Your freedom — or even your life — may be at stake. Armed with 22 years of experience in criminal defense, Mr. Yates is ready to protect your rights and help you attain the best possible result for your case.
Methodical and Thorough Investigation of Your Case
Mr. Yates is devoted to protecting his clients’ freedom. He challenges the prosecution to prove its case and seeks to eliminate or reduce any potential sentence. He knows that witnesses may lie on the stand, that crime scenes can be tampered with and that police officers can make mistakes. He personally speaks with witnesses to ensure that they are telling the whole truth and carefully examines the alleged crime scene, searching for evidence that can help prove your innocence. He also pores over police records and retains experts to challenge the prosecution’s theories if it aids in your defense.
Strong Trial Lawyer
Mr. Yates approaches every case as though it may proceed to trial. Because of his meticulous preparation and in-depth investigation of your case, he is often able to negotiate with the prosecution for a more favorable plea. Strong pretrial preparation can often lead to a favorable outcome before trial. Mr. Yates is prepared to aggressively advocate for your rights in the courtroom before and at trial.
When Bad Things Happen to Good People
Because sometimes good people make mistakes and innocent people get caught in the system, Mr. Yates actively pushes for alternative programs that can mitigate punishments or avoid prosecution. Having regularly worked with first-time offenders, he knows these programs inside and out and can quickly determine your eligibility and assertively facilitate your access to these opportunities if it is in your best interest to do so.
