Ed Strand, a former Deputy District Attorney was military trained in investigations, and has over 30 years of Criminal Law experience. He has both prosecuted and defended criminal charges. This experience has provided him with insight re defending those charged with crimes as to investigating the varied incident circumstances, evaluating the factors and developing varied solutions for thoughtful resolutions. This balance of course includes in depth discussions with clients so as to include their informed thoughts in reaching rational and well reasoned conclusions as to the best courses of response.

Ed’s life experience has given him an understanding of the apprehension of persons facing the fear and concern of their situations. He finds often people are relieved upon their initial contact to learn matters are not as dire as their imaginations have created.

Knowing the applicable laws, including defenses, evidentiary rules are important but for developing defenses and attacking state allegations more is needed. The attorney with the broader life experience will generally have more tools for understanding and competently challenging and predicting the tactics of the prosecution and their witnesses. Ed will take your telephone call and discuss your questions and concerns. He will not charge you for this time as he determines whether he could best help you or whether he will suggest other courses for your matter. These conversations will be absolutely confidently and will most probably be useful for better understanding what might be expected, including if appropriate, discussion of probable and possible responses. He will make an appointment to meet with you at a mutually selected location.
