The Prosecutor’s Office Has a Team of Investigators, Staff and Attorneys Working for Them So Should You

The defense of your case begins long before your first appearance in Court, which explains Ms. Long’s proven track record for success in the courtroom. At Long Law PLLC we verify everything. We never take the police report or a witness statement at face value. If necessary, Ms. Long and her staff work with an extensive network of private investigators, doctors, toxicologists and other experts who can lend insight on a defense as well as expose weakness in a prosecution. Frequently, a client comes to a first interview with Ms. Long and swears that the police either got it wrong or failed to interview the other witnesses to the incident. Ms. Long tracks down the witnesses, gets their statements and gets to the truth. Ms. Long will not allow the prosecution to dictate your defense.
