Dedicated, Experienced Criminal Defense
A Passion For Our Work
At J. Rodney Baum Attorney at Law, we are passionate about our work. Even after 25 years, we never approach a case as routine. When you meet with us, we will thoroughly compare the arrest record with your version of events. That meeting helps us chart an initial strategy. We also take the time to educate you about the criminal justice system and the hearings and other procedural steps ahead of you. That way, you will play an active role in your case.
Personalizing Your Defense
Our personal approach also sets us apart. When we meet with you, we take the time to listen to your story and your background, in addition to the events leading up to the specific charges you are facing. We want our advocacy to help not only your legal defense, but also your plans for a better future. For example, we have helped many of our clients obtain expungements to improve their rehabilitation back into the workforce and other areas of society.
Earning Your Trust
We earn our clients’ trust through hard work and skilled advocacy. Law enforcement officials may have been building their case against you for months or even years. This gives the prosecutor an initial advantage. This is why we conduct our own discovery, often working with a private investigator to search for witnesses and additional evidence. We analyze searches and other actions for procedural improprieties that could weaken the prosecutor’s case and facilitate a plea bargain.
