Misdemeanor and Felony Cases We Handle

Have you been arrested for domestic violence? Domestic violence refers specifically to violence between married couples, unmarried couples, family members and roommates. It can be physical, emotional, or financial, or it can involve sexual abuse such as rape or merely threats of violence. Domestic violence cases are extremely sensitive by nature, especially since a conviction can result in thousands of dollars in fines and imprisonment, and it can force you to move out of your own home and stay away from your own spouse and children, which can be heartbreaking. Nothing is more personal than a domestic violence charge and sadly, these types of cases are often built entirely on lies. We are here to defend you against such charges, but we urge you to contact us right away so we can begin coming up with the most viable defense strategy as quickly as possible.

Our firm has a significant amount of experience handling DUI cases whether they involve drugs or alcohol. While most people are familiar with getting arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, many people aren't aware that they can get a DUI for driving under the influence of illegal drugs, prescription drugs, or even over-the-counter medications such as cold and allergy medicines. As long as a drug impairs one's ability to drive safely, a driver can be arrested for DUI and potentially convicted. Fortunately, there are many viable defenses that can apply in DUI cases; it's just a matter of determining which one would work best in your situation.

If you have been arrested for a drug offense involving marijuana, cocaine, heroin, drug paraphernalia or even prescription drugs, we can help you as well. Drug crimes are prosecuted as both misdemeanors and felonies in the state of California, but how they are prosecuted depends on a number of factors including the type of drug, the quantity, and what you intended to do with it. For instance, the penalties for possessing a small amount of marijuana for personal use are less serious than selling LSD on school grounds or at a park. If you have been arrested for a drug offense, we will first check to see if your search and seizure rights have been violated and if so, we may be able to get the evidence suppressed and the charges dropped.

Were you arrested for a white collar crime?

Not all crimes involve drugs or violence, but instead involve stealing someone's identity or stealing large amounts of money. When crimes are nonviolent in nature and financially motivated, they are often categorized as white collar crimes, some of which include fraud, money laundering, investment fraud, embezzlement, and more. Oftentimes, white collar crimes are committed by professionals under duress from their superiors or by people that are forced into committing them. Regardless of the force behind the act, the person being accused stands to lose their professional license, their job and career, their livelihood and their good reputation within the community where they live.
