A Veteran Trial Lawyer

One key to being a successful criminal defense attorney is the willingness to take cases to trial. When the prosecution understands that the lawyer on the other side will prepare a strong case in the courtroom, they are more likely to be reasonable at other points in the case. Shannon Aldous has tried many cases, both before a judge and jury. Furthermore, she prepares every case with the understanding that trial is possible.
