Assault & Battery
Assault and battery is a violent crime that is aggressively prosecuted by law enforcement. If you are convicted of assault or battery, you will be subject to harsh penalties including fines, restitution, anger management classes and lengthy prison sentences.

Bench Warrants
If you have been charged with a crime or have received probation, failure to comply with the court actions could lead to a bench warrant. When you have been charged with a bench warrant, you could end up in jail if you do not take action to protect your rights.

DUI Defense
After you have been arrested for driving under the influence, you need to develop a strong defense against your charges in order to avoid suffering serious consequences. Our firm can help you create the strong defense that you need by gathering evidence and using our knowledge of the law.

Domestic Violence
This criminal charge is the result of an act of aggression against a family member, such as a spouse, relative, child or partner. These charges are taken very seriously by police officers and prosecutors in California, and you need an aggressive legal defender on your side to fight domestic violence charges.

Drug Charges
You may be charged with a drug crime if you are caught with LSD, marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines, PCP, crack, ecstasy or any other illegal or prescription drugs. The severity of the penalties will depend on the amount and type of drug you were found to be in possession of.

Expungements
This process allows individuals to have convictions or arrests cleared from public records in order to eliminate unwanted information from their record. Obtaining an expungement can be a complicated legal matter, and there are certain criteria that must be met in order to qualify.

Fraud / Forgery
With the help of an experienced defense lawyer, many fraud cases can be settled without jail or prison time. Fraud crimes encompass a variety of illegal acts and usually include some type of business related activity.

Hit & Run
If you have left the scene of a traffic accident that you were involved in, you will likely be charged with hit and run. Anyone involved in a traffic accident is required by law to identify themselves to the other party, and to render aid where needed.

Juvenile Crimes
When a person under the age of 18 is arrested or charged with a crime, he or she will normally be charged as a juvenile in the courtroom. Some of the most common juvenile crimes include vandalism, shoplifting, tagging, assault, drug offenses, DUI, sexual assault and gang related crimes.

Murder
When you are facing murder charges, you must take immediate and aggressive action to defend your rights against a seasoned prosecutor. The varying degrees of murder charges include 1st degree murder, 2nd degree murder and manslaughter.

Probation Violations
What are the consequences of violating your probation? You may risk incarceration or being charged with the penalties for your original offense, and it is vitally important to secure a legal defender who will fight for you.

Robbery
Robbery involves the theft of property through the use of intimidation, threats or force. This serious criminal charge is punished as a felony crime in California, and it will take a skilled defense attorney to be effective in reducing your charges to misdemeanor charges or a lesser crime.

Sex Offenses
Have you been charged with sexual assault, rape or another sexual offense? It is imperative that you contact an aggressive defense attorney who can defend your rights and your future from a sex crime conviction.

Theft Crimes
There are various methods of committing a theft, such as taking something through force, deception or gunpoint. Theft crimes can range from minor shoplifting charges up to serious armed robbery, but it is important to have a talented defense lawyer regardless of your charges.

Traffic Offenses
Most people mistakenly believe that they don't need an attorney for help with their traffic ticket, but there are numerous reasons why it is wise to enlist legal help after being charged with a traffic offense. Your ability to fight your charges can have a significant effect on your employment and insurance rates.

Weapons Charges
Weapons charges can be the result of illegal gun manufacturing, illegal sale, illegal purchase, concealment, illegal use of a firearm and many other illegal actions involving a weapon. These charges are so severe that they can include single or multiple offenses, and conviction will likely result in jail or prison time.
