Aggressive Preparation

Our admirers praise our lawyers for their ability to think on their feet, skillfully cross-examine witnesses, and negotiate tactfully and effectively with prosecutors. We know that the cornerstone of our success is meticulous preparation. We believe that the more we know about a case and the earlier we know it, the better the result will be for our client. We put a lot of work into the beginning of a case, from the worst–case scenarios to the best place the client can end up. It may be that no charges are filed, a complaint is dismissed, an acquittal is won, or a conviction with a lenient sentence is achieved. Once we have our goal in sight, we craft a strategy to get there. We believe that the key to a stellar courtroom performance lies in painstaking investigation, research, and preparation. Being proactive and preparing diligently allow us to control the case. We never let the case control us.

We Work with Prosecutors

We are comfortable in working with prosecutors to protect our clients’ interests. After our team has thoroughly investigated a case, it is not uncommon for us to share some of our findings with prosecutors with the aim of demonstrating why charges should be reduced or dropped. We believe that our greatest victories lie in convincing prosecutors and enforcement agencies not to bring charges – especially in white-collar defense cases. Of course, we are more than happy to play the role of "courtroom warrior" when needed. When prosecutors realize they will face a strong challenge in front of a jury, they often agree to cut our clients a more favorable deal.

We are Discreet

We are not your typical Yellow Pages law firm. While we believe that it is sometimes necessary to fight battles in the media, we endeavor to keep our clients out of the public eye - not just high-profile corporate executives, but also anyone charged with a crime who would be embarrassed by media attention. When it is not possible to divert press attention entirely, we work with media professionals so news coverage is more favorable than it might be otherwise.

We Take Pride in Our Motions

At every stage of litigation, motions are often the key to winning - a fact that many attorneys overlook or simply cannot take advantage of due to a lack of skill. Our attorneys, on the other hand, have extensive experience at winning important, often decisive motions based on Constitutional, procedural, and evidentiary law. Time after time, our attorneys have won or dramatically improved the prospects for a client’s victory or won cases outright at trial by prevailing on pretrial motions. As a corollary, we have also had extraordinary success persuading judges to give jury instructions favorable to our clients.

We Pay Attention to Details

We believe in the paradox of looking at the big picture and, at the same time, paying close attention to the details. Often a small detail proves to be the key that breaks a case wide open. Those small but decisive details often come to light by intensively interviewing clients, visiting crime scenes, or conducting a personal investigation with crucial witnesses. By scrutinizing statutes and case law, examining evidence and court documents, and reinvestigating prosecution claims, we frequently demonstrate that attention to detail pays.

We Think Ahead--Far Ahead

Many attorneys lack the expertise or vision to see beyond the here and now. In contrast, our attorneys, with their extensive appellate experience, always plan for the possibility that a case will be reviewed by a higher court. In doing so, we take steps necessary to protect our clients’ future interests.

We Have a Unique Team

At Lorandos and Associates, we have a unique team of attorneys. Our attorneys have earned not only academic laurels at the highest levels, but have also real-life experience. This is probably why we can connect with a jury. Keeping in mind the changing demographics of this country, we value diversity and an understanding of different cultures. Our attorneys and associates are fluent in Spanish, Hindi, Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, and Gujarati.
