The process for defending against criminal charges typically involves several stages, including investigation, pre-trial motions and negotiations, trial preparation, trial proceedings (if the case goes to trial), and post-trial motions or appeals. Throughout each of these stages, Monument Legal will work diligently to gather evidence, identify legal issues, challenge the prosecution’s case, and present a compelling defense strategy aimed at achieving the best possible outcome for you.

If you are arrested or charged with a crime, you have important rights guaranteed by the Constitution. These rights include the right to remain silent, the right to legal representation, the right to a fair trial by an impartial jury, and the right to confront witnesses against you.

We strongly recommend that you exercise these rights and refrain from speaking to law enforcement without an attorney present. We will advise you on how to navigate the legal process while protecting your rights and interests.
