Frequently Asked Questions
Bring us questions such as the following for clear direction in your criminal case in Oklahoma.
How can I or my loved one get out of jail as soon as possible?
You may be able to post bond to get out of jail before your criminal case has concluded. Contact us right away to learn about your options. We will fight to have your bail lowered. We will also help you determine how you might afford to pay bail and whether it makes the best sense to do so in your case. We can also provide you with local bail bondsmen who work in the area of the state that you need. We routinely practice in 35+ counties in Oklahoma per year…so we have contacts with bail bondsmen across the state.
If the police gathered evidence through illegal search and seizure, what might that mean for my case?
Rest assured that if an attorney from Swain Law Group represents you in connection with a drug crime or theft investigation, we will examine all details to determine whether law enforcement agents illegally searched your car or home. Did they seize alleged evidence without authorization? If so, we will fight hard to get that evidence suppressed, and your name may be cleared altogether.
Can I get a criminal record expunged?
Expungement of your arrest or conviction record is definitely something you should pursue if you qualify. Have you successfully completed probation after a deferred sentence? Were you acquitted of criminal charges? Have 5 years passed since you were convicted of a misdemeanor? Expungement laws in Oklahoma have changed drastically in the last few years. Its important that you speak to an experienced law firm who handles expungements each and every day. Ask an attorney at our firm about opportunities to have your records sealed.
Criminal Defense Strategies You Can Count On
When you choose our team to handle your case, you will work directly with one or more of our attorneys and we will start by listening to your side of the story. Once we learn about the situation from you, we will review the charges the prosecutor has filed against you. The Swain Law Group is the only firm in Oklahoma with one attorney who ONLY does jury trials. Attorney Dan Pond tried 60 rape, murder, drug trafficking and violent crime trials in Oklahoma County before joining the Swain Law Group in 2021. When it comes to an experienced brain trust to help you in your greatest time of need, the Swain Law Group is the very best in Oklahoma.
Attacking The Evidence Used Against You
We never take evidence at face value. We know that it is the prosecution’s job to make evidence look strong, when, in reality, it may have serious weaknesses. We will attack these weaknesses and, whenever possible, aim for a dismissal of your case. With 5 former prosecutors on our team we don’t have to go out of our way to think like a prosecutor. Typically we know all the ways that the State of Oklahoma will use the evidence against you…and we tailor our defense based on that knowledge.
We Aim To Negotiate But Are Not Afraid To Go To Battle If Necessary
We are fluid in our approach to criminal defense. If we attempt to negotiate a positive outcome, only to find that the prosecution is not willing to work with us, we will not simply accept a bad deal. We will move forward, fully prepared to go to trial if that is the most appropriate approach. Each year our attorneys take a minimum of 5 cases to trial. We are not afraid of going to trial.
