Should I Go To Trial?
A Simple Question, But A Difficult Choice
Three Videos That May Shed Light On The Subject Of Criminal Trials
Making a decision about going to trial is often very difficult, and it usually means considering more than just whether or not you are innocent. There are times when it can be very prudent to accept a plea bargain, as hard as it may be to make that decision.
As Glenn Roderman explains in the following video, the evidence against a defendant may be difficult to overcome. A prior record may also be a big factor in making a decision about going to trial or accepting a plea.

But it is important to know that a trial can be a difficult process, especially for the accused. In this video segment, from The Spoken Law series, Glenn Roderman discusses some of the emotions that come into play when a defendant goes on trial.
Defending Against Overzealous Prosecutors
Sometimes a prosector, called a State Attorney in Florida, will be too focused on providing the maximum punishment for a crime without considering all of the evidence or facts of a case. Because prosecutors are human beings, and because these humans sometimes make unreasonable decisions, having a defense attorney who can confront these unreasonable prosectors is a vital cog in the defense machinery of your case.
Because of his experience as a prosecutor a judge, Mr. Roderman knows how to view a case from all angles and recommend various tactics to support a sound and appropriate defense strategy for your case, including handling situations involving an intractable prosecutor.
Listening To You And Discussing Your Options
