At the Griffin Law Office, APC, our San Diego criminal defense attorney knows that our clients count on our legal expertise to produce positive case results. Our California criminal law firm prides itself on just that.

Our criminal defense lawyer in San Diego County also knows that our clients and, in some cases, their families rely on effective communication from our attorney and support staff so they are fully informed about the progress of their cases.

This makes us partners with each of our clients, and here is how we do it.

California Defense Attorneys

Regular Updates

Our defense attorney often establishes a schedule for regular updates for our clients and their family. This can include weekly or monthly updates, depending on the case’s complexity and the stage of proceedings.

This may include scheduled phone calls, in-person meetings, or video conferences to discuss the case’s status, recent developments, and upcoming actions. These meetings allow for direct communication and the opportunity to address questions or concerns.

We will also summarize recent events in the case, court dates, or other vital information in written communication, like emails or letters, to provide an accurate record of shared knowledge. This also allows us to share critical legal documents and court filings like copies of court orders, pleadings, motions, and evidence as they become available.

Explaining Legal Processes

Part of a precise defense strategy is to ensure our clients understand the legal process. This is why we take the time to explain the details, including the various stages of the case and what to expect next. This helps demystify the legal proceedings and reduces anxiety.

Managing Expectations

Part of our communication goals is to manage our client’s expectations based on the evidence of their unique case so they understand the potential outcomes and consequences, including best-case and worst-case scenarios, and any available options and strategies to get our case there correctly. This helps manage expectations and ensures that attorney-client interactions remain effective and productive.

Transparency and Honesty

Open and candid communication is essential for maintaining trust. We will always be transparent and honest about your case’s progress, potential challenges, and any changes in strategy.

Sharing Case Developments

We share information about developments in each of our client’s cases, like new evidence, witnesses, or negotiations with the prosecution to convey how each new piece of information impacts the case’s trajectory.

The Importance of Communication and Trial Preparation

As the case approaches trial, we thoroughly prepare with our clients and discuss the trial strategy and the roles everyone will play during the trial.

Trial preparation is essential for ensuring we are well-prepared for the courtroom. A well-prepared defense is more likely to present a strong case, challenge the prosecution effectively, and make a persuasive argument to the judge and jury, increasing the chances of achieving a favorable outcome, whether through acquittal, reduced charges, or a more favorable plea deal.
