Austin Criminal Lawyer
Jackson F. Gorski
Whether innocent or not, defendants charged with or arrested for misdemeanor or felony criminal offenses need legal representation as fast as they can get it.
If they’re being detained in the Travis County jail, they’ll need jail release services so they can get ready for their court appearance and help counsel investigate the case for their defense.
When the lawyer has access to and the cooperation of the accused, it makes defending them from prosecution less complicated. It makes a difference when legal counsel knows which witnesses to interview, and which witnesses are lying. Some witnesses aren’t witnesses at all. They’re liars. Only an experienced criminal defense lawyer can demonstrate the damages caused by false-witnesses in a courtroom setting with any effectivity.
Defendants Need & Deserve Aggressive Legal Representation
Never trust the government. Ever. If we could trust the government to properly administer the law, most or all of us would be in prison. Almost everything is illegal or a violation of “some ordinance” which results in no lack of criminal charges against the citizenry or the state’s will to pursue them legally. This is why EVERYONE deserves an aggressive legal defense. The government cannot be trusted.
The Constitution of the United States and the Texas Constitution provide protections for the individual against the state, and us criminal defense lawyers ensure those protections are upheld. Due to the inefficient nature of government and her agencies, even the red-handed guilty deserve a strong legal defense. After all, a person may not need a 20-year prison sentence to learn their lesson when 6-months to 2-years might do the trick. If a person is innocent, they’ll need legal representation even more. As commonly joked among my colleagues, “defendants who are guilty need a damn good lawyer and the ones who are innocent need an even better one.“
Understanding Criminal Law & Procedures
A criminal case, either a misdemeanor or a felony, is resolved by a dismissal of the charges, an entry of a plea of guilty or no contest, or a verdict after the Defendant has pleaded not guilty and proceeded to a trial of the case by the court or jury. A jury must reach a unanimous verdict (12 of 12 in a felony, or 6 of 6 in a misdemeanor) or the case can be retried at a later date. This is what is often referred to as a ‘hung jury’.
I understand that every client is a person. You are more than what is in the prosecutor’s file. As your attorney, I will take time to get to know you, understand you and answer your questions. I am never too busy for my clients. It is important to understand that every case and every client is unique and there is no single answer to the question of how their case should be resolved. For some clients, this might mean taking the case all the way to a non-guilty verdict at trial. For others, it will mean disposing of the case early-on in the process through a plea bargain.
Most people have never been involved in the criminal justice system. In fact, most people never even thought that they would be arrested. Many clients worry about the possibility of serving time in jail, but for most of my clients that is almost never the case.
Others worry that they’re going to have a permanent conviction on their record, and that’s often not the case either. The most important thing you can do is meet with me and be honest about your needs so that I can give you advice and guide you through the process.
If you’re concerned about your ability to pay for your legal representation feel free to call The Law Office of Jackson F. Gorski to schedule a meeting at which point I’ll review your case at no-charge, then we can work out a reasonable payment arrangement that you and your family can live with. When you’re faced with the possibility of losing your freedom at the behest of the government, you’ll need legal representation not a financial headache. The Law Office of Jackson F. Gorski is always willing to work out arrangements with people in need of our help.
I am dedicated to keeping you informed and involved in your case. I am available 24 hours a day to meet your needs. If you ever have any inquiries with regard to how certain areas of your case are progressing, you can call me. However, I’m generally proactive with regard to keeping my clients informed.
When it comes to promulgating a fruitful attorney-client relationship, it’s one of the most important parts of defending an individual. Having a trust between us, that’s mutual, is always helpful when defending a client in the court of law.
By the same token, if a client doesn’t trust their lawyer or vice versa, it’s guaranteed to make a bad situation worse.
