Being accused of a sex crime can be stressful and downright frightening. Your future, reputation, and freedom are all on the line as you choose an attorney to represent you.

The sex crime lawyers at Blanchard Law have extensive experience in defending against false accusations of sex assault and child molestation. In fact, they are often asked to present to other lawyers regarding their expertise in the areas of trial skills, dealing with sympathetic witnesses in criminal sexual conduct cases, and regarding scientific evidence. The lawyers at Blanchard Law are in-demand statewide and nationally as trainers for other lawyers.

Blanchard Law also ensures that the clients they serve are a top priority. We significantly limit our caseloads so that each case we do take on gets the personal attention that it deserves. We make time not just to do the legal work on the case, but also to get to know the client and their family in the way that the client deserves. We find that we can best defend our clients when we truly get to know and understand their story.

In order to be successful at trial, you will need a sex crimes attorney who can best help you tell your story to a jury. A jury is going to want to understand the relationships involved in the case and to have an idea or ideas about why a person or a child would lie about something so serious. It is important to find the most effective way of presenting the story to a jury so that you can come away with a not guilty verdict and begin to rebuild your life following an accusation.

Blanchard Law also ensures success at trial by conducting focus groups prior to trial. The focus groups help us figure out what issues in the case regular people, like our potential jurors, will focus on during a trial. It also helps the lawyers practice various arguments and see which ones work best, before we try them out on a real jury. The focus groups also help our clients to practice their testimony in a courtroom-like setting, so that they feel more comfortable with their actual testimony in a real trial.

Most of all, you will need a sex crimes attorney who cares about the outcome of your case to be defending you at trial. Blanchard Law looks at your defense as a partnership with you, and takes a team approach to defending your case.
