When you hire Premier Defense Group, your lead defense attorney will be Attorney Tom Pavlinic. Tom has been a private-practice criminal defense attorney since 1975, and has developed his expertise in sex crimes cases since the mid 90’s. To date, he has defended individuals accused of sexual crimes involving minors and adults in over 25 states across the country. He offers a strategic and proven defense based upon over 40 years of experience, including 20+ years of exclusive sex crimes experience. Read more about his experience and accomplishments.
Additionally, when you hire our Group you will benefit from the “group concept” which is the cornerstone of our law practice. Although Tom is admitted to the Maryland State Bar, he represents clients nationwide by teaming with the Group’s co-counsel sex crime attorneys who admit him to their state/local courts pro hac vice. Regardless of the state in which you reside, Attorney Pavlinic is always the lead defense attorney who will represent you throughout your case including at trial, should one be necessary. Each client therefore is directly represented by two lawyers, and benefits from both the (national) sex crimes expertise of Attorney Pavlinic AND the (state/local) criminal law experience of a co-counsel Group lawyer.
Importance of an Experienced Sex Crimes Attorney
The harsh penalties and stigma that follow a conviction for an alleged sex crime often cannot be reversed. When choosing an attorney for your specific case, it is important to consider that sex crime cases, especially when involving alleged child victims, are unique in many ways and therefore present unique challenges and obstacles. It is for this very reason that Attorney Tom Pavlinic shifted the focus of his law practice sex crimes defense, exclusively.
Among these obstacles is the fact that physical evidence is often not available, especially in cases where “force” is not alleged. Such cases are often “he said, she said” cases, and therefore one’s attorney is tasked with creating reasonable doubt based upon a small amount of “evidence.” Out-of-court statements and in-court testimony is often the chief or even sole evidence that stands in the way of one’s freedom. In such an undertaking, one’s attorney must possess an experienced skill set in order to sometimes-delicately (especially with children) yet effectively discredit the testimony of the alleged sex crime victim. For these reasons and more, please carefully choose your attorney.
