All criminal cases are fought under the shadow of trial. The ability to put on a strong case at trial will affect all aspects of the criminal process. When prosecutors fear that they may be unable to win at trial, they are more likely to drop charges, reduce charges, or offer a favorable plea deal. Additionally, a judge may dismiss the case at trial if there is insufficient evidence. And, of course, a strong case can lead to a not-guilty verdict.
At Spolin Law we focus on preparing each case for trial by:
An experienced financial crimes attorney can fight to stop public anger from steamrolling over the facts of any individual case.
State and federal authorities are increasingly cracking down on financial crimes. Individuals charged with fraud, embezzlement, insider trading, and other traditionally “white collar” crimes are now facing years and often decades in prison. Additionally, prosecutors frequently seek to “make an example” of white collar defendants. This can result in disproportionate sentences that are based more on public anger at a broken system than they are based on fairness or proportionality.
Spolin Law’s success handling financial crimes is based on our experience and approach. Before working as a defense attorney, attorney Aaron Spolin served as an economic crimes prosecutor, handling fraud, embezzlement, employee theft, and various other financial crimes. The firm fights for its clients by (1) independently investigating the facts and financial records of each case, (2) hiring outside forensic accountants or other experts when appropriate, (3) filing legal motions to prevent unfair or inappropriate prosecution tactics, (4) negotiating plea deals with prosecutors when the client so desires, and (5) forcefully advocating for clients during hearings and trials.

If police, prosecutors, or other agents of law enforcement break the law, evidence that was illegally obtained may be suppressed. This principle is necessary to protect the rights guaranteed by the Constitution. It is also necessary to protect all citizens from abusive and potentially violent government action.
The Spolin Firm vigilantly protects the constitutional rights of its clients. Each case is examined for possible illegal government action, and each constitutional issue is litigated and argued to the fullest extent. Successful motions will nearly always strengthen a client’s case and can also result in dropped or dismissed charges.
Over 2,000 people are wrongly convicted each year.1 Are you one of them?
America’s criminal justice system is one of the best in the world. But it’s not perfect. Innocent people are sometimes convicted, and it can result from a number of causes, including: eyewitness mis-identification, faulty forensic science, forced or coerced confessions, and a number of other sources. While a defendant is “innocent until proven guilty” before trial, after trial he or she becomes effectively “guilty until proven innocent.” Overturning a wrongful conviction can be a difficult process; but it can be done.
Spolin Law handles appeals in state and federal court, including direct appeals, writs of habeas corpus, and other post-conviction motions. All appeals are handled directly by attorney Aaron Spolin, a former prosecutor and former member of California Law Review. Mr. Spolin is also the author of the Princeton thesis Reforms for the Process of Eyewitness Identifications in Criminal Trials, which discusses the leading cause of wrongful convictions in the United States.
If you have been convicted, you have a limited time to file an appeal. Call Spolin Law for a free consultation about your case.
