Although there seems to be a renewed emphasis on law and order today, the government has always pursued criminal cases aggressively. Armed with vast financial resources and sweeping investigative powers, state and federal prosecutors have an unfair advantage over those who have been accused of a crime. If you are under investigation or facing criminal charges, it is crucial to have proper legal representation.

At the Law Office of Mark J. Sacco, our practice is focused exclusively on criminal law and defending clients against offenses ranging from driving under the influence and drug possession to violent crimes and fraud.

If you are under investigation or have been arrested, we are readily available to handle your case. We will represent you at the arraignment and work to secure your release. Because being arrested and accused of a crime is a frightening experience, we will take the time to fully explain the charges against you and advise you of your rights.
We start by collecting evidence and conducting a thorough investigation. This includes obtaining and reviewing the police report which will allow us to quickly assess all the relevant facts and uncover any potential mistakes or inconsistencies. Over our many years of practice we have even seen cases in which the police have made errors, such as by obtaining evidence without a search warrant. At this stage of an investigation, it is also essential to identify and interview all relevant witnesses, discover evidence of your innocence and establish any mitigating factors that will support your case.
We also leverage our legal writing skills to prepare motions that are a critical factor in every criminal defense case. Unlike many law firms, we are highly nimble trial attorneys who are readily adaptable to changing circumstances. By effectively questioning and cross examining witnesses and presenting evidence of reasonable doubt, we will work to have the case dismissed or to achieve a non-guilty verdict. In the event of a conviction, we will determine if there are grounds for an appeal and continue pleading your case.
