Adept At Handling Complex, High-Stakes Cases

Lisa Torraco has successfully represented clients facing serious, life-altering felony charges again and again, employing her analytical skills, her background as a prosecutor, and her persuasive skills in the courtroom. Some of the case types she frequently takes on include:

  • Weapons charges and gun law violations, in which she investigates how the prosecution constructed its case and identifies if there was any misapplication of complex federal or state gun laws
  • Rape and other sex offenses, where she carefully reviews the relationship of the accused to the person making the allegations, as well as relevant physical evidence
  • DWI and related intoxicated driving arrests, where she looks at evidence of probable cause, as well as how field sobriety and blood/breath tests were administered
  • Murder and assault allegations, in which she reviews the forensic evidence and acts quickly to preserve witness accounts and crime scene details
  • Drug charges, including drug trafficking, where she reviews the evidence for signs of inappropriate tactics by law enforcement, such as illegal search and seizure

If your arrest has generated media attention, Lisa Torraco can handle requests for interviews and position your case so that you receive a fair trial.
