A Simple Philosophy: Be Prepared.

Many lawyers will push for a plea agreement from the outset, but Attorney Bishop's philosophy, and that of Bishop Law, is that every client has a right to a trial and every case should be prepared as if it will ultimately be argued to a jury. Of course, in many instances, a plea bargain may be the best alternative. But without effectively preparing the case and exploring all available options, it's impossible to accurately assess whether trying the case or entering a guilty plea is the best course of action. Simply put, as a client of Bishop Law you can rest assured that Attorney Bishop will be prepared to successfully litigate your case to verdict.
