How Our Experienced Sexual Assault Defense Attorneys can Help
Our Des Moines sexual assault defense lawyers provide compassionate support without judgment. We begin every case by protecting the rights of our clients during questioning and throughout the arrest process to ensure they receive legal treatment. Recognizing that the basis of sexual assault cases often involves accusations without evidence, each sexual assault defense attorney at our firm devotes extensive time to preparing for the trial, as follows:
- We carefully examine all evidence to be used against the defendant
- We thoroughly investigate the details of every case, including identifying the past relationship between the accuser and the accused
- We help identify illegally-obtained evidence
Under the law, every defendant is innocent until proven guilty. Juries understand the seriousness of sexual assault charges and do not typically convict a defendant when the case of the prosecution leaves any degree of reasonable doubt in their minds. Our job is to refute the evidence to help establish reasonable doubt.
