INTERVIEW WITH ALFREDO GUEVARA III

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY?

During my time in law school, I interned with the public defender's office, and could see firsthand the difference a good criminal defense attorney could make in a person's life.

IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT SETS YOUR FIRM APART FROM THE REST?

I believe we care more for our clients and work harder to get the best results possible on every case. In addition, as a firm with three attorneys that focuses primarily on criminal law, I believe we bring more knowledge and experience defending criminal cases than most other firms.

WHY SHOULD SOMEONE HIRE YOU OVER A PUBLIC DEFENDER?

While public defenders are dedicated and hardworking attorneys, their caseload dwarfs that of most private practitioners. They simply cannot put in the time on each case to make sure they do their best. Our firm takes the time to make sure we spend as much time as possible on each and every one of our cases.

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU DO WHEN YOU TAKE ON A NEW CASE?

The first thing we do is learn as much about the case as we can so that we can successfully defend our client. The better we know their case, the better we can defend our clients.

HOW DO YOU VIEW YOUR ROLE IN THE ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP?

My role as an attorney is to be my client's advocate, to argue on his behalf and to be his counselor, and offer advice and guide our client through the criminal justice system.

WHAT ADVICE DO YOU MOST OFTEN GIVE YOUR CLIENTS AND WHY?

I tell them to never speak to the police without first getting advice from an attorney. The police have been trained to get people to say things that they shouldn't. I tell them to exercise their right to remain silent and to request an attorney.

TELL US ABOUT A CASE YOU ARE PARTICULARLY PROUD OF:

I recently represented a man who was charged with child molesting. We were able to convince the prosecutor that the evidence showed that they had the wrong man, and obtained a complete dismissal of the case.

SOME SAY TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE AFTER AN ARREST – IS THIS TRUE?

Hiring an attorney as soon as possible allows the attorney to obtain statements from witnesses while the memory is still fresh and evidence before it can be lost or destroyed. It also gives an attorney the opportunity to do a pre-filing investigation to try and keep charges from being filed.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN REPRESENTING THE CRIMINALLY ACCUSED?

I have been representing people accused of crimes for over 15 years.

WHY SHOULD A PROSPECTIVE CLIENT CHOOSE TO WORK WITH YOUR FIRM?

Our firm will aggressively fight for your best interest. It is something that we take very seriously because we believe our clients deserve not only our dedication and compassion.
