If you are charged with a crime or think you might be, you are understandably concerned for your future. The most important concept to remember is that you have the right to remain silent and you should never speak to anyone about the alleged crime(s) except your attorney. Our office has successfully defended clients against all levels of criminal prosecution ranging from misdemeanors to major felonies.
If you have been injured as a result of an accident that was not your fault, you may be struggling with pain, disabilities, mounting medical expenses, lost wages, and uncertainty regarding your future financial stability. Such accidents often require that the injured party seek professional representation to help them wade through legal effects of the accident and fight to get a fair recovery from the insurance company.
California considers driving under the influence a very serious violation and has responded with ever increasing penalties, fines, and jail time. A DUI conviction will substantially increase your insurance rates for many years. In addition to criminal charges, the DMV will take action against your license, resulting in the loss of driving privileges for up to one year. You only have ten days from the date of the arrest to request a DMV hearing.
Clearing your record is an important step to putting your life back on track after a criminal conviction. In some cases it is possible to overturn prior convictions and restore your record as though you had never been charged. Our office has many years of experience helping individuals doing just that. We have also had success using extraordinary writs to help clients who had been wrongfully convicted and incarcerated.
