Overcoming the “Guilty” Presumption
When you are hiring a criminal defense attorney, you should hire someone who has had successful results with the specific crime for which you are facing charges. Although no lawyer can guarantee results, this can help increase your chances of a favorable result.
In any criminal case, we often presume the person who is charged is guilty. Good felony charges attorneys know how to overcome that presumption. My firm – the Law Offices of Jason A. Cueva – has thrived by focusing on innocent until proven guilty. As a criminal defense lawyer, I have enjoyed the privilege of having successful results at all phases of the criminal process by achieving “NOT GUILTY” verdicts at jury trial, including mistrials and hung juries. I defend individuals in Daly City, South San Francisco, San Mateo, Redwood City and the surrounding Bay Area counties.
A History of Dismissed Cases in California
I succeeded in having cases dismissed before and on the day of trial, as well as accomplishing favorable resolutions that either avoided jail time or significantly lessened the potential punishment. I have defended individuals who are facing charges for a variety of crimes, including:
- Domestic violence
- Drug sales, trafficking and cultivation
- Drug possession and medical marijuana
- Gang offenses and enhancements
- Crimes of violence
- Weapons offenses
- Juvenile law
If you are charged with any crime, felony or misdemeanor, and decide to hire me as your lawyer, you can be sure you will not be hiring a lawyer who is out to make a quick buck and engage in “dump truck” lawyering. I do not believe in assembly line or rubber stamp justice, where a lawyer pleads his client out at the first court appearance.
I believe every person charged with any criminal offense is entitled to the best defense possible. I also believe in providing each client with zealous representation that leaves him or her with the impression that I defended the case as if I was charged with that offense. This helps ensures that I will be passionate, creative and skillful in defending your case.
I will metaphorically hold your hand at every procedural step of your criminal case, educating you on the facts, laws and evidence that apply to your case. I believe in empowering the client so that she or he may make the best decision possible.
