Criminal charges may result in severe legal consequences upon a conviction. If convicted, you will not only lose your freedom and certain alienable rights, but you will also damage your reputation with your family, friends, and community. That is why; Anthony Como is not an Attorney and Counselor at Law that encourages clients to accept plea bargain offers where it would not be in their best interest.
“As a former Prosecutor and now as a trial attorney, I have tried numerous criminal cases and I will not hesitate to take your case to trial if it is in your best interest because not every case can be settled.” Because Anthony Como knows that the reality is that sometimes a fair and just result is not offered, no matter who you hire. That is why you need to hire an attorney that has the trial skills and trial experience to protect you if negotiations fail.
Anthony Como uses his years of experience as a former Prosecutor and a former Elected Official to negotiate favorable plea bargains for his clients. He recognizes that sometimes the result a client wants may never be offered. That is why Anthony prides himself on building a successful trial strategy from the day of each client’s initial consultation. Mr. Como is known for putting his clients first by forging close relationships with them and realizing the long term ramifications of any resolution of the criminal charges.
“No one case is the same to any other, every criminal case is fact specific and every criminal complaint has a person behind it, no two are similar and therefore each and every case needs to be evaluated fully in order to best successfully defend our clients.” More important though, is the reputation I have with my clients.
When Anthony Como commits to a case, he, personally evaluates your case, listens to your concerns, answers all your questions, and builds an organized, aggressive, and gripping defense strategy to present before the judge and jury. This includes the client’s right to be well informed. There is no way to have a successful defense without the client knowing every aspect of their pending criminal matter.
“As a Counselor at Law I know there is a serious amount of anxiety that goes with every criminal matter that every client is facing and by explaining each and every step of the process and telling them what to expect and keeping them updated on any and all developments, the client’s nervousness is relieved and we are better able to successfully defend them.”
