Boise Idaho Divorce Attorneys (208) 472-2383 - Family Law Lawyers - Criminal Defense Attorneys
Evidence can make or break your case. Whether you are in the midst of a divorce, being tried on a criminal law matter, if you need to probate a will or whether you are filing bankruptcy, evidence is a critical key to success.
You have undoubtedly heard from your doctor or pharmacist that you should never take another person's medicine. You may say that your symptoms are exactly the same, well almost exactly the same, so what is the harm? Medicine in like the law in some ways and one of those ways is evidence. A doctor looks with a trained eye at your symptoms, makes a diagnosis and prescribes a medicine or a life change. A Boise Divorce Attorney or Idaho Criminal Lawyer does very much the same thing. They look at the facts of your case, analyze the evidence and prescribe a course of action. The difference between the two is that the law tends to be more variable. There is the objective law but there are also the subjective judge, parties and attorneys. Two cases rarely turn out the same primarily because the facts, the evidence and the lawyers, judges and parties are not the same.
A good and experienced Boise Divorce Attorney or Idaho Criminal Lawyer will know the law and their rules of evidence and can, to a degree, control what is placed before the judge. Sometimes you may have perfectly obvious evidence, but for one reason or another (hearsay; relevance; confusion) that evidence will be excluded. You also can have the opposite result if the attorney on the other side is not the best evidence student. I have been in situations where I have been able to introduce evidence that could have been excluded had the other Boise Divorce attorney or Idaho Criminal Lawyer known their rules of evidence.
