What should I expect during my initial interview with you?

I begin an initial interview, usually in my office, where we discuss the charges you are facing and how I can help. During this time, I will answer any questions you have, and work to set your mind at ease about how we will move through this process together. 

While answering your questions, I also learn about the facts of your case, and begin to formulate ideas about defenses we can raise, strengths and weaknesses of the case, and how we can best combat the charges against you.

I was fighting a case that would have given me a life sentence, and this man saw I wasn’t guilty even though I was arrested for it anyhow. Needless to say, I never saw a day in court. Thank you Mr. Elmen, you’re a Godsend to the Thorn Fam…
