DOUG MANER BELIEVES IN THE PRESUMPTION OF INNOCENCE

UNDER THE LAW,
YOU ARE INNOCENT
UNLESS PROVEN GUILTY.

The presumption of innocence is the foundation of our criminal justice system, and the core philosophy of The Law Office of Douglas D. Maner.

Doug Maner's Manifesto

What does this mean to you?

 

The Presumption of innocence means that the Government is required to prove each element of the crime they allege against you beyond a reasonable doubt. Until this occurs, you must be considered 100% innocent.

 

It means that once the Government has arrested you and charged you with a crime, it has to build a case against you that is so strong that no reasonable doubt can exist regarding your guilt. Your rights during the investigation and prosecution of your case must not be violated.

 

As Defense Counsel, one of our primary duties to you is to protect your rights and exclude the evidence against you if your rights are violated. We will thoroughly investigate your case, and establish a reasonable doubt, if at all possible.

 

Often the District Attorney files charges they cannot prove, or turns a blind eye to law enforcements' violation of your rights. The only way to convince a Judge or Jury of this is through an exhaustive investigation of the Government's case and an intense evaluation of the law relevant to your case by an expert in criminal law.

 

Doug Maner served a Senior Deputy District Attorney for twenty two years and has expert knowledge of the inner workings of the District Attorneys office. As Senior Deputy District Attorney, he built thousands of cases for the D.A., and knows exactly what it takes to tear them apart.

 

Your freedom is the most important thing you have. You owe it to yourself and your family to have the best possible defense, and the most experienced lawyer defending you.

“I worked with Doug for several years at the District Attorney’s Office. His persistence, analytical abilities, impressive knowledge base and natural courtroom skills were just a few of the reasons that made him so successful. These skills combined with his prior experience on the "other side" make him THE "go-to" defense attorney in Northern and Central California."
