How Do I Get to See the Evidence?

Demand it.

Most states have what is called discovery rights. This means that your attorney, once he is on the case, can demand that the state permit him to view, inspect, and copy all the physical or testimonial evidence the state intends to use at trial. This also includes inspection of physical evidence such as weapons, contraband, and videotapes.

In federal court it’s all upside down. In federal court you have very limited rights to see the evidence before trial. Most lawyers agree federal courts are leading the charge backward toward the Middle Ages; I call it the Dark Ages, of civil/criminal rights.

Most states have more and expanded discovery rights than are permitted in federal court.

Client Reviews
My experience with Mr. Behr and his staff was nothing short of phenomenal. I hope to not ever need representation again. But In the case I do. J would absolutely use Mr. Behr. I would also fully recommend him to anyone I know in need of representation. Jeff
When I travel throughout the world for business I can honestly say that I feel extremely comfortable knowing I can pick up the phone for guidance and know Mr. Behr will consistently have my back with a positive answer on the other end. I attribute my success with my business by having this honorable man on my team. Thomas
Mr. Behr has helped me in various cases. And each time has been more than successful than I expected! I would recommend him 100% to anyone with legal problems. Eve
He filed motion after motion until the judge finally dismissed my case. He even took it to another judge. The guy never stopped and let nothing stop him. He was all over the prosecutor and knew more law than the judge, it was super cool to watch the man work. He is the best lawyer in the county. Jose
