People often look to secure representation after an incident or immediately following an arrest. It is important to act quickly. Taking decisive steps before authorities even bring charges can help to avoid many of the issues associated with an arrest.
Whether you suspect that you are being investigated for a crime or believe that you could be connected to someone else's offense, you can protect yourself by taking proactive measures with the guidance and counsel of our firm. At Baird and Zulakis P.C., Attorneys at Law, we not only defend clients accused of crimes, we also help clients avoid being charged altogether.
We Put Resources At Your Disposal During A Criminal Investigation
A strong criminal defense often begins with gathering all the facts and pertinent information. With more than 30 years of experience, attorney Zulakis understands the best methods and has access to numerous resources in order to proactively gather materials that can prove invaluable when averting a criminal charge.
While each case is unique, there are certain steps we take to protect our clients while working tirelessly to build the foundations of a strong criminal defense should our client's case go to trial. Some of these processes include:
- Independent investigations: We will carry out independent investigations to ensure that we have all the facts.
- Industry experts, witnesses and investigators: As an established firm, we have strong connections with professionals throughout the community. Additionally, the experts we consult are considered credible by area judges and prosecuting officials.
- Counseling and support: Identifying addiction, mental illness or psychological problems can be an important aspect of securing a favorable outcome in a criminal matter. Judges and prosecutors may look favorably on defendants who pursue treatment and take steps to ensure they do not repeat their offense.
A Strong Defense Starts With Contacting An Experienced Attorney

In many cases, prevention is the best defense.
