Why Hire a Former Prosecutor?

We've Been on Both Sides of the Fight

In the criminal justice system, there are two types of attorneys who spend the majority of their time in criminal court, constantly arguing cases before criminal judges: prosecutors and public defenders. Attorneys with experience in either position gain a unique feel for how cases are settled and negotiated, and they know which ones should go to trial. Most, if not all attorneys have an extensive understanding of the law, but the most important knowledge that will apply to defending your case is a practical understanding of strategy, preferences of judges, and trends in the criminal courts. A former prosecutor or former public defender is in the best position to fight for you, having acquired this knowledge in the classroom of experience.

The team at Ayo and Iken, PLC has fought on both sides of the fight, and now we are on your side. Our firm includes several former prosecutors and a former public defender, and we have 35 years of combined experience. When you bring your case to us, you will have the full benefit of our wealth of legal knowledge and hard won experience, as we work closely together to achieve the best possible results for our clients.

Having a Polk County criminal defense lawyer with prosecution experience on your side makes it possible for you to level the playing field. Where other attorneys often have to guess at what the State Attorney's next move will be, we can often anticipate the tactics that will be used against you and counter with an effective defense. We know where to look for mistakes on the part of law enforcement and the prosecutor, as well as weaknesses in the evidence which may be exploited to your advantage. Our team operates on the principle that knowledge is power, and we are frequently able to use our knowledge to resolve charges for offenses such as DUI or a sex crime without ever going to trial.

Knowledge is Power

Let an attorney from our firm guide you throughout the criminal process, from your arrest through to the final conclusion of the case. We will stand by you at every phase of the case, from questioning with investigators to pre-trial hearings and even a trial if it is necessary to secure the best possible outcome. We know what types of actions the police may use in an attempt to trick you into making self-incriminating statements or a confession, and will advise you of when you should "plead the Fifth" by refusing to act as a witness against yourself. We will realistically evaluate the situation and give you our h onest opinion of your options. We will fight tirelessly to defend your rights and help you avoid the life-changing consequences of a conviction. When you have been charged with a crime, contact the lead attorneys from our firm for dedicated representation from a former prosecutor.
