EXPERIENCE & EXPERTISE
Experience and expertise mean a lot when it comes to criminal defense. You want a lawyer who has been there and done that. You want a lawyer feared and respected by prosecutors. The State &Government do not act out of the kindness of their hearts and that is because they must be forced to do what is in the best interest of the client. This means a-head on, take no prisoners approach towards the handling of your case. Mr. Canet has built his reputation on this philosophy and is well known for his aggressive yet nasty attitude towards prosecutors.
