Criminal Defense

A Client-Centered Approach To Criminal Defense

Some defense attorneys don't meet their clients until their very first court appearance. Some try to convince clients to take plea deals for the sake of convenience. Some lawyers care more about wrapping a case up than they do about advocating for their clients.

Thankfully, when you work with Chan & Associates, you can expect the exact opposite approach to the one described above. Our criminal defense practice, headed by attorney Chad Zimmermann, focuses on getting to know clients and then working for the resolution that best meets their needs and goals.

When you meet with us, we'll want to learn about you, including (but not limited to) the circumstances that led to your criminal charges. After hearing your side of the story, we'll take the time and effort to conduct a thorough investigation into the charges against you. Then, we'll clearly explain all of your options and the likely outcome of each.

Finally, we'll collaborate with you to decide on the appropriate strategy. We never pursue a course of action without your approval, and we do not rest until we feel that you are getting the best results possible.
