In California, this legal area covers felonies, misdemeanors, and infractions. Felonies are serious crimes that entail a jail sentence and a hefty fine while misdemeanors could get you a prison term and/or a fine. Infractions don’t include prison time, generally. Nobody is free from making errors but there is no reason that you or your loved ones need to suffer indefinitely for a momentary lapse of sense and judgment. It is extremely important to consult with an attorney and discuss the merits and demerits of your case. In all likelihood, this will be the difference in attaining a good judgment and an undesirable one.

Being charged under criminal law involves a variety of consequences. You need to be well acquainted with what falls under your rights and what the possible outcomes of the case are so that you are better prepared for it. A conviction lasts on your record for all time to come and impacts almost all aspects of your life. This means that your reputation in the community is at stake as is your professional license and personal lawsuits in the future. Contact us for a complimentary consultation so that you can be acquainted with the strength of your case and the potential pitfalls that you face.

Misdemeanor and felony charges can be defended in state as well as federal courts. DUI charges include reckless driving, DUI, vehicular manslaughter/homicide, and everything that falls in between. Drug related charges cover the range of trafficking, manufacturing of various controlled substances, as well as possession and distribution of drugs like marijuana, heroin, cocaine, LSD, methamphetamines, club drugs, and more.

In the state of California, you may be charged with simple possession of a controlled substance that is deemed for personal use as well as for large scale manufacturing with intent to sell and more. Depending on the severity of the case, an attorney is best placed to help you through such trying times. Whatever the case, it is important to fight for your rights and against these charges. There are many ways to do so.

Our criminal law attorneys are highly effective at strategizing and utilizing many different defensive techniques in their pursuit of each client's rights.

Criminal Attorney in VenturaWe have found numerous cases in which the investigation itself was flawed. This includes the way in which police conducted the drug bust such as manipulating rules of search and seizure, falsifying, or exaggerating information to obtain a search warrant, use of fake informants, and even fabricated the reason for the arrest in the first place.

Cases can be thrown out of court by drug crimes lawyers who aggressively pursue justice for their clients. By finding the flaws in police procedure and matching prosecutors' strategy, our attorneys can use California criminal code to your advantage - and help you seek the most positive outcome possible for your case.

If you or your loved ones have been accused or charged with drug crimes or indeed any other section of criminal law, the first thing to do is to become informed about the charges and possible consequences. A hard working and dedicated attorney offers you the best chance at finding your way out of a legal maze.
