"When we treat man as he is, we make him worse than he is; when we treat man as if he already were what he potentially could be, we make him what he should be." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Rather than see the worst in people, we find the best in them. At Shawn Curry Law, our vision for criminal defense is as unique as our approach is authentic.
We understand the criminal justice process for what it is. When a person has been accused of a crime, they are named as a "Defendant," followed by case-tracking number, and prejudged by the name and nature of the criminal charges they face. While our constitution affords all persons accused of a crime the presumption of innocence, the court of public opinion too often tags them with an assumption of guilt.
In order to preserve, restore, and advance your rights, your freedom, and your life, we must reverse this stigmatizing and de-humanizing effect. This is done by implementing a multi-faceted approach. Not only will we work together to develop an understanding of all factual and legal issues resulting from the criminal accusations, but, also, to understand you as a person, your life, and the impact the criminal charges could have on each.
Having helped people accused of crimes from Felony Drug Possession to Driving Under the Influence (DUI) to Theft to Assault and more, we understand how to define and achieve individualized objectives as reflected by a proven record of success whether by plea negotiation or trial.
While the criminal justice process is adversarial by nature in order to keep the government in check and citizens free from oppression, the result of your case will hinge on your criminal defense lawyers ability to help others -- whether prosecutor, judge, or juror -- find and see a common and shared vision that ulimately aligns with your objectives or goals.
