One of the greatest challenges and struggles a person can face is a criminal prosecution. Uncertainty about the future is immediate. Hope can disappear. At risk is the loss of reputation, employment, family and possibly life itself. The Law Office of Anthony Cecutti is a responsible law firm that embraces this challenge and struggle. We believe in a client-centered approach and seek to have a comprehensive and complete understanding of our clients and their needs and interests. We come alongside our clients and provide committed and dedicated representation during some of the most difficult times of their lives. In this effort, we build a team according to the needs of a case and the client. This team can be comprised of a private investigator, a mitigation specialist, and a forensic expert such as a psychologist or psychiatrist. Where present, we desire to help to identify and address the underlying or core issues of the client that are relevant in a case.
Our strength lies in early investigation, passionate advocacy, relentless pre-trial and trial preparation, and accessibility. We believe in client empowerment and helping those we represent make informed and educated decisions. We strive to develop collaborative relationships with our clients and encourage them to actively participate in their defense.
