When you call this office, you will speak to the attorney. If he is unavailable, your call will be returned at the earliest opportunity after receiving your message. If Mr Belgrave is your attorney, he will answer all of your questions candidly. He will examine the strengths and weaknesses of the People’s case and advise whether you should accept a plea bargain or proceed to trial.
If the prosecutor offers a plea bargain, Mr Belgrave will determine if it is fair based on the relative strength of the case against you. If he finds it unacceptable, he will make a counter offer. If his plea negotiations are unavailing, he will discuss with you the risks and benefits of going to trial since the decision is ultimately yours. If you choose the trial option, Mr Belgrave will discuss trial strategy towards obtaining the most favorable outcome.
In 2015, Mr Belgrave represented a criminal defendant charged with Driving While Intoxicated. For months, he was in negotiations with the prosecutor for a favorable plea bargain, to no avail. Consequently, the case went to trial. After Mr Belgrave cross examined the arresting officer, the prosecutor decided to discontinue the case and offered the defendant the plea offer which he had been requesting all along.
Mr Belgrave will fight for you too.
