Your Defense Strategy

Being charged with a crime does not mean you’ll be found guilty or spend your life paying the price for a simple mistake. We’re all human, and we all make mistakes. It’s part of life. You don’t deserve to be punished. You deserve the opportunity to learn from your past and look forward to a brighter future. We’re here to support you as we work toward that future together.

We Will Work To:

• Empower you with knowledge about your case and the criminal process
• Get the most successful resolution possible for your case using our decades of collective experience attaining “not guilty” and “case dismissed” verdicts for our clients
• Help you avoid a criminal charge on your record
• Work toward getting your life, dignity, and reputation back

Preparing To Beat Your Charges

We systematically and exhaustively prepare for each case. That level of preparation means our clients have hope for their futures. We build that hope, so you feel prepared, ready, and confident about the outcome – it’s the first step to success.

When we walk into a courtroom, we already know the judge’s preferences and tendencies, the police officers’ weaknesses or missteps, and the holes in the prosecution’s argument. We bring an overwhelming amount of evidence that tells your side of the story.

How We Prepare For Your Case

The attorneys at Tracey Wood & Associates are here for you every step of the way.

Your story starts here: we review your case for free and at no obligation to you. Then, we thoroughly investigate your case by talking to witnesses, collecting evidence, and reviewing police reports, test results, body cam footage, surveillance videos, and court documents looking for any mistakes or procedural errors. Like all of us, police, prosecutors, and judges make mistakes, too. And we capitalize on those to help our clients win.

We use this information to build a persuasive narrative that explains your side and paints you in the best light while attacking any crack in the case against you.

With a strong narrative and factual evidence, we then bring your case to the negotiating table to convince the prosecutor to reduce or drop charges. Then, if necessary, we prepare for a fight in court where we have a winning history in both bench and jury trials.

Sample Google and Facebook 5 Star Reviews:

“Tracey and her team got the judge to admit that the officer should not have administered field sobriety tests. He suppressed the breath test results and I ended up with a fine for an expired registration and no drunk driving charge.”

Client M.R.

“I was a ball of nerves facing my third DUI offense. Penalties would have included big fines, a long drivers license suspension, an ignition lock, alcohol assessments and classes that would have cost a lot of money, and time in prison. I was nervous it would have cost me my job. Thankfully, the attorneys at Tracey Wood & Associates made sure none of that happened!”
