RAY TWOHIG’S PHILOSOPHY OF LEGAL REPRESENTATION
I believe that I am entrusted with the life and future of each person I agree to represent, and fully understand that I assist clients in some of the most difficult times in their lives. I believe I am responsible to guide each client through circumstances which are unfamiliar, risky, complex and unfair, with loyalty to the client and a sophisticated and objective analysis of the path the client must travel to clear the legal hurdles presented by the case and consider all of its ramifications. My experience and skill enable me to plan and implement a strategy which will make the most of the opportunities each case presents. I work to minimize the negative impact of the criminal justice process on my client, and maximize the benefits available through the law. In civil rights cases, I seek to redress wrongs carried out by government employees whose abuses of authority or power have damaged citizens.
The Twohig Law Firm accepts clients who face criminal accusations as well as those whose constitutional rights have been violated. Some cases have both features. We concentrate on major cases, but I realize that each criminal case has major impacts on the accused, and don’t limit my representation to cases which seem important to the news media or the government. Major cases are those which have complex legal or factual issues, substantial consequences, great public interest and/or challenging strategic decisions. We often represent people facing criminal charges, then, when the charges are favorably resolved, pursue appropriate civil rights claims in state or federal court. We also accept civil rights claims of a substantial nature where there has been no criminal proceeding. In addition, we represent people whose licenses and professions are threatened by accusations of wrongdoing, or whose past circumstances may make licensing difficult.
Use of this website does not create an attorney-client relationship. The firm enters into written fee agreements with each of its clients. In the absence of such an agreement signed by the attorney and the client, the attorney does not represent the client. Even though no attorney client relationship is yet established, communications about the possibility of representation may be protected by the attorney client privilege.
