When we represent you, we will meet with the district attorney to explore the settlement or dismissal of your criminal case.

If this is the first time you’ve been charged with a crime, Shawn Kassman will speak with the district attorney about your case on your first court date. Mr. Kassman will discuss the state’s position regarding your case, which is determined by the criminal charge and your criminal history, based on a background criminal history report. Before the district attorney may make an offer to the defense counsel, he or she requires this background check. The district attorney will speak with the complainant (the person making the allegations against you) before making a settlement offer.

We usually are able to negotiate a plea bargain, allowing you to plead guilty to a noncriminal violation. This prevents you from having a criminal record. Mr. Kassman also may negotiate an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal, which means your charges are dismissed six months to a year later.

In some cases, a trial is necessary. There are two types of trials: a bench trial, in which a judge hears testimony and makes the final ruling, and a jury trial, in which jurors hear testimony and issue a verdict. In either type of trial, the district attorney must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Mr. Kassman is an experienced trial attorney who will protect your rights and fully investigate your case.
