Understanding Austin Criminal Charges

The Burden of Proof is on the State

Travis County District Attorneys Have Their Hands Full

During my experience as a criminal defense lawyer in Austin, I’ve represented as many wrongfully accused defendants as those rightfully so. Regardless of the guilt or innocence of the defendant, the Travis County District Attorney’s Office has a responsibility to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. As often as the phrase “reasonable doubt” is thrown around, you would think that the public as a whole has a firm grasp on the understanding of such.

Beyond a reasonable doubt should be taken to mean that no circumstance could have possibly occurred which opposes or questions the case being presented by prosecutors. However, this standard is aggressively assumed by prosecutors more often than it persists in reality. Without a seasoned criminal defense lawyer serving as the defendant’s legal representation, a defendant runs the risk of being convicted of a charge that’s based on a shaky foundation that a reasonably skilled defense attorney could have beat in trial or successfully dismissed.

When your case is in the hands of Austin criminal defense lawyer Jackson F. Gorski, you can take comfort in knowing that the strategy development sessions needed to ensure an effective defense will be deliberately executed and professionally carried out.

What to Expect From Attorney Jackson F. Gorski

The Responsibilities of Austin Criminal Defense Attorneys

Once you’ve endured the terror of seeing those bright red and blue lights chasing you down in your rearview mirror accompanied by a deafening siren, accepted the embarrassment of being handcuffed and seated in the back of a patrol cruiser, suffered the utter demoralization of being confined in the filth of the county jail among society’s worst, and secured jail release services or a bail bond, you’ll need a lawyer you can count on.

My primary responsibility to my valued criminal defense clients is to provide reasonable doubt to any claims made by prosecutors of their criminal wrongdoing. This includes, but is not limited to, challenging any witnesses, questioning the validity of evidence or pointing out the lack thereof, and ensuring that the defendant’s Constitutional Rights were not violated at the time of their arrest or during criminal investigations by law enforcement.

Another responsibility of any competent criminal defense lawyer is to develop a convincing argument that illustrates a basis for reasonable doubt that a jury can reasonably digest and understand without much intellectual challenge. Having your case articulated by a well-spoken Austin criminal defense attorney is a crucial component of effectively communicating why a prosecutor’s case is doubtful and an imperative for defense lawyers craving a favorable resolution for their clients.

Although some lawyers miss the boat on respect, I pride myself on having the highest level of respect for each and every one of my clients. If you tell me you’re guilty, I’ll work to find a way out for you. If you tell me you’re innocent, I’ll treat you as a person who is innocent and approach your case as such.

Don’t lie to me. I won’t lie to you. We have to be one unit and able to trust each other. I’ll respect you, and you’ll respect me in return. As long as we remain complementary to each other via the foundation of a solid attorney-client relationship, we can strive to obtain the best results possible for your situation.
