Sieben and Cotter Trial Lawyers

What level of service can you expect from us as your criminal defense attorneys?

First and foremost, WE GET THE JOB DONE!  Practically speaking that could mean winning your case outright (i.e. acquittal or dismissal of charges) or securing the best possible outcome for you.  As a criminal defense law firm our mission is to achieve excellent results through honest and aggressive representation.

Winning your Case

This is our primary focus at the beginning of each and every case.  We start by gathering all of the government’s evidence against you.  Then, we carefully review each piece of evidence — identifying any flaws, gaps, or situations where the government overstepped; whether that is an illegal search and seizure, mishandling of evidence or inadequate investigation.  We will hold the government to their burden of proving your guilt by challenging their evidence against you before trial.  If we win the charges against you will be dismissed.  However, it is crucial to simultaneously put you in the right position to receive the best possible outcome if the charges are not dismissed.

Achieving the Best Possible Outcome

In our over-30-years of combined experience, we know what the government is looking for, or should be looking for, when it comes to your case.  We have a reputation for honesty and integrity in the legal community and have developed long-standing relationships with the government.  You can expect that we will use our reputation and relationships in seeking the best possible outcome for you by presenting you as a whole person, before and after the criminal offense.

Not only do we want to help you win your case.  But, we want to help you win your case AND put you on a path to be a successful person after your case is resolved.  We accomplish this by having a face-to-face conversation with you in order to identify the underlying reason(s) that you are being charged with a crime.  These underlying causes could be related to alcohol/drug abuse, undiagnosed mental health issues, or an unhealthy relationship.  Whatever it is, if any, we will help connect you to the right resources for your situation.  Taking proactive steps to address the underlying causes of your difficulties will not only lead to a favorable result, but will set you up for success moving forward in your life.

We provide you honest and straightforward answers to your situation.

With our extensive and combined experience in challenging criminal defense cases, we understand both the direct and indirect consequences affecting you.  We are knowledgeable of a wide variety of charges and individual circumstances.  Our successes speak to the practical and aggressive solutions we provide.  You can expect that we will:

  • Provide an honest perspective of your situation and possible outcomes;
  • Apply our extensive knowledge and experience to your criminal defense;
  • Take an aggressive position, and keep you completely informed of your options;
  • Be dedicated to providing the best advice, and top performance on your case.
