When you only have one shot to get it right, you need focused and experienced guidance. Whether you are facing the loss of a fundamental right, facing a prison sentence, or need to get maximum compensation for an injury, don't take the "shotgun" approach. So many attorneys operate that way, just throwing everything against the wall hoping something sticks. This wastes your money, it wastes your time, and it doesn't get you the results you want. At Crossroad Legal, we take a "sniper's approach" to litigation. Instead of fumbling along in the mud, we prefer to think of ourselves as elite mercenaries - but we're your mercenaries. We are always happy to help resolve legal issues through careful negotiations and alternative dispute resolution where appropriate. But our team is not afraid to take on the challenging cases. In fact, as many as a third of all our clients come to us after having other lawyers fail to achieve the results they were looking for. We're selective, we're tenacious, we enjoy the fight.

At trial, the state produced a video purporting to show the defendant in the act, and the defendant had a lengthy criminal record, much of which the judge allowed the jury to hear. After a 3-day trial, the jury found the defendant not guilty. The state's best plea offer prior to trial was 8 years prison.
