High attorney rankings, honors and awards are great indicators of a good attorney. However, successful case results are the best indicator of all. In criminal matters, success can result from getting charges downgraded, dismissed and significantly reducing a person’s jail exposure. Jury trial success is a very important factor to consider as well, because not all cases resolve pre-trial. In the event you elect to go to trial, it is important that you have an experienced criminal trial lawyer with a proven track record standing by your side ready, willing and able to go to bat for you. You do not need a plea bargain specialist, with very little trial or no trial experience, sitting next to you at the trial table trying to defend your most prized possession, your freedom. Courtroom experience, jury trial success and confidence are critical to a successful defense strategy. Shevelle McPherson is not only a top rated trial attorney, she is former prosecutor who has successfully tried thousands of cases and an experienced defense trial lawyer with a proven track record of jury trial success. She is often referred to as “Fierce” McPherson by her colleagues due to her aggressive litigation skills. She has a proven track record for not only winning cases, but winning cases that the evidence suggests are “unwinnable”.
