The criminal justice system can be scary and intimidating. When people are charged with crimes that can affect both them and their families for the rest of their lives, it’s important to have lawyers who can help explain the process, navigate the legal system, and protect their clients’ rights. Hankey Law’s criminal defense attorneys use their knowledge and experience to skillfully defend clients charged with violating the law in the Grand Forks, Fargo and surrounding areas in North Dakota. Our practice is comprised of lawyers who have an in-depth familiarity with the North Dakota and Federal criminal justice systems. We apply our understanding of the prosecution’s tactics and the functions of courts, judges, and juries to effectively represent our clients in criminal proceedings.
From the first stage of our representation, we engage in frequent interaction with the client because we believe it leads to the best possible results. Our clients are active contributors in their own cases and we strive to learn as much as we can about them. With this information, we identify character witnesses and use mental health assessments and employment history where appropriate, all of which help us to show each client as an individual. Especially if the client is convicted, these and other mitigating factors can later aid our attorneys in presenting sentencing alternatives, including treatment and rehabilitation options.
Being charged with a crime in North Dakota can bring hefty fines and harsh sentences, making it necessary to have the best criminal defense representation possible in order to avoid these consequences. When someone is arrested in North Dakota, they can expect the criminal proceedings to begin shortly after their arrest. This makes having a lawyer ready who specializes in criminal defense essential when it comes to the best chances of avoiding any jail time.
