Fighting for Justice

We, the criminal defense attorneys at
The Sumner Law Group are dedicated to attaining justice for our clients. In some instances justice does not align with the law, and in those cases it is imperative that your defense attorney take your case to a jury. Recently, the criminal defense attorneys at The Sumner Law Group did just that, and justice prevailed.
Our client had been charged with the unlawful use of a weapon. Specifically, he had a gun concealed in a backpack, which he had on his back. Our client did not have a conceal carry permit, and thus for all intents and purposes our client was guilty under the black and white letter of the law. However, in this case there were many circumstances outside the violation of the criminal statute that made it unjust for our client to be convicted. Therefore, the law and justice did not align.
The criminal defense team at the Sumner Law Group took the case to trial and fought the prosecution on the issue. We stayed up late and worked tirelessly to get the proper jury instructions applied to the case and when the judge suggested that we were wrong, we argued tirelessly until we were able to persuade him that the law supported our position.
Our efforts paid off. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty after deliberating for less than 20 minutes. This verdict would not have been possible without the long hours of research and masterful court room arguments and skills that we, the criminal defense attorneys at The Sumner Law Group applied to this trial.
If you have been charged with a crime, let the criminal defense attorneys of The Sumner Law Group help bring you justice. If your current criminal defense attorney is suggesting you take a plea even though you do not think you are guilty, hire us. We will diligently fight to bring justice to you and your case.
