Why Choose Us

The reason to choose Marquardt & Belmonte, P.C. is because our attorneys are former prosecutors. We have years of experience handling trials in criminal court, and our background in government gives us a perspective that a lot of criminal defense attorneys do not have.

Indeed, having handled many criminal cases on the prosecution side, we have the ability to know the mechanics of how a prosecutor approaches a criminal case. We can easily understand where there might be areas of vulnerability in the prosecutor’s case. Thus, we are well-positioned to give you a vigorous defense against your criminal charges.

We are committed to leaving “no stone unturned” when it comes to presenting an effective criminal defense for you. Again, our goal is to make sure that you get the best outcome in your case. We will do our best to make sure that you do not get a conviction or criminal record. That means that:

  • We will make sure we challenge the admissibility of evidence if your Fourth or Fifth Amendment rights were violated during any time in the case.

  • We will draw from our prosecution background when advising you on any plea offers you may receive, and

  • We will do our best to marshal all of the relevant evidence and witnesses if your case goes to trial.

Protecting Your Rights

Part of our job is to make sure that the police and prosecutors follow appropriate criminal procedure. Thus, if you were searched or arrested without appropriate justification, or if you gave a statement in violation of Miranda, then we have the tools to try to get your case dismissed outright.

We make sure that we are with our clients every step of the way during the criminal process, so that you do not make the mistake of speaking to a police officer without an attorney present.

William Belmonte and his team was a beacon of hope to me and my family during a time when my options seemed limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed impossible. I was facing serious consequences, which Mr. Belmonte was able to bring from a maximum sentence to a minimum, and help get my life back in order. In addition, his calm, honest, and upfront demeanor offered emotional support to myself and for those I care for most. My family and I are eternally grateful for Mr. Belmonte service and I highly recommend his law firm.
