Criminal Lawyer Joseph Tully’s Law Practice Philosophy

Joseph brings a passion to law practice rarely seen among criminal defense lawyers and it drives the three factors underlying his extraordinary record of positive outcomes. First, he outworks and out prepares prosecutors because he knows the State’s massive law enforcement and judicial machine has inherent advantages over an individual; someone caught up in the presumed-guilty criminal process.

Also, while prosecutors expect criminal attorneys to play along in a process focused on quick plea bargains, defense lawyer Tully always makes the State prove every element of their case prior to considering any plea offer. Many prosecutors’ cases fail at this stage due to inadequate or nonexistent proof and charges are dismissed.

Attorney Tully enjoys criminal trials and has an exceptional record of positive outcomes. Prosecutors know he will uncover police misconduct or negligence, expose untruthful witnesses, seek to exclude defective evidence, and assure a judge or jury is aware of every circumstance and true fact scenario.
