Motion Writing & Argument
Motion hearings are some of the most powerful tools available to any criminal/DUI defense attorney. Some may have the power to dismiss a case, while others may suppress certain evidence against you. Either way, they can play a significant role in the handling of your case.
At the Law Office of Scott T. Stotz, I believe in leveraging these motions (when available) to give you the best opportunity to get your desired outcome. After you and I discuss the details of your case during our consultation, we’ll determine whether some sort of Pre-Trial motion may be available and necessary. If so, I’lll let you know and you and I will discuss any aspects of that motion which I may need your assistance with.
Depending on whether you have a misdemeanor or a felony allegation, there may be a number of motions available to you. Some of these may include motions to strike prior convictions, motions to suppress evidence, motions to dismiss charges, or motions to reduce a felony allegation to a misdemeanor, etc.
There are several considerations involved in determining whether any motions are available to you, including the details of your case and what stage of proceedings of your cases in. To best preserve your motion litigation toolbox, it is best to get an attorney on-board sooner rather than later.
When you are ready to discuss any potential motion that may be available in your case with, contact me to schedule your consultation.
