Dallo, discuss the details, and strategize the next steps.

A major component of J. Dallo’s strategy is the fact that his clients can afford to go to trial. His success means achieving your goals using ample resources. Sometimes that is accomplished by successfully negotiating a favorable agreement with the prosecutor. However, if the prosecutor does not offer us what we want, he will fight for you using abundant means to stifle and overwhelm any prosecution.

A Highly Selective Law Practice Means Better Results for You

Attorney Dallo does not overburden his schedule the way other attorneys do. Having fewer, select clients affords him the time to be prepared, examine the evidence, research your case, interview the right witnesses, bring in the best experts, prepare thoroughly, and do what it takes to represent you at the highest levels of competence. If you retain the firm’s services, you will witness the way J. Dallo commands the courtroom with his skill, knowledge, and poise.

Many prosecutors and judges have either witnessed or have heard of how hard J. Dallo fights with meticulous detail and grandmaster abilities in the courtroom. They already understand that he will go to trial to challenge the prosecution’s allegations and will do so defending a client that has ample financial resources to go to trial.

Simply put, he is able to do things that other attorneys with lesser resources are unable to do. This reputation usually allows Attorney Dallo to get what he wants out of the prosecution. If not, then he will go to trial.

Reputation in the Courtroom

J. Dallo’s professional career began like no other attorney. Before becoming an award-winning criminal defense attorney defending clients in the courtroom, he was an award-winning fighter who taught others how to be better-aware of their surroundings and to defend themselves against physical force. That is where he learned the art and significance of helping others defend themselves. He successfully competed in boxing, kickboxing, and no-holds-barred tournaments on his way to becoming captain of the University of Michigan Boxing Club during his undergraduate career. Today, J. Dallo uses his experience in the courtroom, martial science, legal acumen, and in-court prowess to challenge any prosecutor and any charge, no matter how serious or damaging. He understands what it is like to have a lot on the line, he associates with many other productive individuals, and he is resourceful, which makes him the strongest advocate for those individuals who have worked so hard only to now face serious criminal charges.
