A prosecuting attorney learns certain specific skills, and much of their activities are spent in developing cases and in taking them to trial. There is nothing more valuable than trial experience, and an inside knowledge of how a prosecutor develops a case to pursue a conviction. Michael Fulcher served as an Assistant District Attorney for 8 years, and has a great insight into every aspect of a criminal case – including how the “other side” operates.
Identifying a Criminal Defense Strategy for your Case
A former prosecutor knows how a case can be pulled apart by the other side. In any criminal trial, the burden of proof lies with the prosecutor – they must prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt. The ability to open the door to doubt is what a great defense lawyer brings into the courtroom. Are the witnesses trustworthy? How likely are they to testify? Does the prosecutor have all the evidence they need to prove their case? Were any mistakes made in how the evidence was handled prior to trial? These are some of the questions an experienced attorney will seek to answer in determining a client’s best course of action.
Before becoming a criminal defense lawyer, Michael Fulcher effectively prosecuted all types of felony and misdemeanor criminal offenses including, but not limited to, Drug Trafficking, Drug Sales & Distribution, Simple Possession, Armed Robbery, Rape, Aggravated Assault, Burglary, Forgery, Identity Theft, Shoplifting, Family Violence Battery, Vehicular Homicide, DUI, BUI, Driving with Suspended License and Speeding offenses.
Over the past 12 years, Michael Fulcher has conducted dozens of felony & misdemeanor trials. He knows what weaknesses to look for in a prosecutor’s case and the burden the State must meet to get a conviction. He can use that knowledge to his client’s advantage when negotiating a plea or defending a case at trial.
When it’s your future and your liberty that is at stake, you want to have every advantage available when you walk into that courtroom.
