About me

As an experienced Defensive Attorney, I know the impotance of maintaining a client's not guilty plea until all avenues have been explored to either get the matter dismissed or reduced.

Maintaining the not guilty plea requires the Prosecutor to thoroughly examine the facts and law regarding the criminal charge(s). By maintaining the not guilty plea I require the Prosecutor to provide all discoverable information that can help to show the Prosecutor that there is a lack of proof concerning elements of the charge(s) which would require the Prosecutor to either reduce the charge(s) or dismiss them.

Some defense Attorneys are too quick to reccomend that their client plead guilty in order to close out the file. As a general rule I will advice my client to wait to plead guilty until the facts and law of their particular case are fully reviewed. Then the client can make an informed decision as to whether or not he/she can live with the proposed disposition I worked out. Please call my office to disguess your individual case in detail.

Gerard J Pisanelli Esq.
