Passionate Defense Backed By Results
For more than 15 years, our criminal defense attorney, Nick Sarcone, has represented clients in Polk County and elsewhere in Iowa who find themselves caught up in the justice system. Our full-service defense firm, Babich Sarcone Attorneys at Law, can represent you throughout every step of your case, from pre-trial motions to the appeal.
To us, no charge is too small to merit a strategic defense. We handle all criminal charges imaginable, from misdemeanors to felonies, state charges to federal. The outcomes we have helped our clients achieve include dismissed charges, reduced sentencing and acquittals.
Some of the cases we often handle include:
- Drug possession, manufacture and trafficking
- Driving under the influence
- Operating while intoxicated
- Assault and battery
- Theft, larceny, burglary and robbery
- Sexual assault and rape
- Federal weapons charges
- Fraud and other white collar offenses
When you come to us for help, we have a frank discussion with you about what to expect from the legal system. We will not sugarcoat things; you can expect us to be honest with you about the most likely outcome of your case. Professionalism, courtesy and respect are three qualities you can always expect from us.
Rare And Exceptional Trial Experience
Nick Sarcone is one of the few attorneys to graduate from the Trial Lawyer’s College – a preeminent school that provides additional training in litigation. As a result, he has added training in preparing a case for trial. In his career, he has tried more than 40 cases and has argued appeals in the Iowa Supreme Court, the Iowa Court of Appeals and the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
Mr. Sarcone also practices appellate law. If your first trial was not fair, he will fight for you to have another chance, ensuring you are informed along the way.
What Does A Criminal Defense Attorney Do?
As your legal representation, our defense attorney’s job is to explore all available methods of pursuing the best possible outcome in your defense. He considers the options of building a case to beat your charges in court, finding grounds to get your charges dismissed, or negotiating to reduce your charges or maximize a plea deal. As he goes through this process, our firm team will remain in constant contact with you.
What Is An Unlawful Search?
The police do not have the right to go through a person’s property for no reason. Police can only search your property if they have your consent or a warrant, have arrested you, have exigent circumstances, or can see evidence of a crime in plain sight. Without these elements, our attorney may be able to get any evidence they find dismissed through the “exclusionary rule.”
When Should You Ask For A Criminal Defense Lawyer?
You should reach out to an attorney as soon as you have received criminal charges or if you suspect you will be charged soon. The more time you give our attorney to build your defense strategy, the stronger your defense can be.
Why Choose Babich Sarcone?
Part of what sets us apart from other law firms is our commitment to our clients. We take the time to learn about the unique details that make up your case before developing a personalized strategy to pursue the ideal results in your defense. As we represent you, we will also explain the details of your case, how we expect things to be resolved, and what we are doing to help you.
