What is Physical Evidence?

Physical evidence refers to any tangible material or object that can be used as proof in a criminal investigation or court case. There is always some form of physical evidence. The physical evidence can come in the form of bullet shells, and autopsy/medical findings. If there were no physical evidence present, there could still be eyewitness testimony, statements from the accused, circumstantial evidence, and more. The question is if there is enough evidence to prove to a jury that, without a shadow of a doubt, the accused committed the murder. If the jury doesn’t believe the prosecution witnesses, then the defendant can be acquitted.

Can Video Be Used as Evidence?

Using video evidence is possible in court. If you would like to use evidence in court, your attorney will have to prove to the judge that the video is relevant to your case and is reliable. To prove that your video is authentic and reliable to the court, you must have great lighting, the timing of the recording must be right, and the location must be correct. Video from traffic cameras carries much more credibility than video captured from a cell phone because the video source can be found.

Criminal Defense Cases We Handle

Some criminal attorneys prefer to handle cases out of court and make compromises for simplicity’s sake. We, on the other hand, are not afraid to go to trial, and we are not intimidated by the prosecution. You can rest assured that we have what it takes to be an advocate to the end.

Our criminal defense lawyers in Van Nuys can defend against almost any case, including:

It is possible for individuals to represent themselves in a criminal case. However, those cases have a much lower chance of a favorable outcome than those where the client has the help of an attorney.

Now is not the time to try to handle things on your own. You need to be part of a team that has your best interests at heart. Call Williams And Seemen and get the legal experience and determination you need to help you in your unique situation.
