Defense Strategies for Felonies

The defense strategy used in a criminal case depends on the unique facts of the case and the nature of the charges. Some general approaches that might be used in defense of various types of felonies include:

  1. For Murder and Homicide: We may be able to argue that the defendant acted in self-defense, in defense of others, or lacked the intent to kill.
  2. For Assault and Battery: The defendant's innocence is shown by their arguments of self-defense, accidental contact, and lack of evidence, which create doubt in the allegations made against them.
  3. For Burglary: The defendant didn't mean to break the law, and the prosecution doesn't have enough proof. 
  4. For Drug Offenses: The defense team works to protect the defendant's rights by challenging the evidence presented by the prosecution, including questioning the legality of the drugs and how the police obtained them.
  5. For White-Collar Crimes: The prosecution lacks sufficient evidence to prove criminal activity beyond a reasonable doubt, and the defense claims that the defendant didn't intend to break the law but followed the advice of experts.

It's important to note that these are general strategies and may not apply in every case. An experienced felony defense lawyer in West Palm Beach can assess the specific facts of your case and determine the most appropriate defense strategy.
