There are good ideas and then there are bad ideas and then ideas in between the two extremes and then some ideas that are not relevant and a mixture of stuff in between.

Each case is different and there may be defenses that might not work in one jurisdiction even though it is a good defense in another jurisdiction. Sometimes people google or internet research their legal matter and find a case in another state or another community which provides a defense under one version of a state law or municipal ordinance but which does not apply in another jurisdiction.

Not all people are the same or think the same way. Not all prosecutors or judges agree with certain interpretations of the law. Many Supreme Court decisions are split decisions like 5 agree and 4 dissent or 4 agree, 1 concurs in part, and 3 dissent and similar split decisions. The law of the land also varies among the different states and municipalities which each have different state and municipal laws. A law in one jurisdiction may not be the law in another jurisdiction.

Also, it is helpful to check past similar cases online at the official court website such as

It is sometimes but not always but sometimes helpful for you to consider hiring a private detective or private investigator. Not all cases are the same and you do not need one in every case. In order to protect the "confidentiality" of the private investigation it is best to have the private investigator hired through the attorney's office because if subpoenaed then the attorney can argue that the information is confidential attorney work product information.
