Cases We Handle
Being charged with a crime is a stressful experience. The possibility of a conviction that leads to strict legal penalties, expensive fines, and damage to one’s reputation is difficult to deal with. In addition to these negative consequences, simply navigating the complicated legal process of a criminal investigation can be overwhelming.
The best way to meet the challenges posed by a criminal proceeding against you is to invest in an excellent defense attorney who will walk with you through the court process and vigorously advocate on your behalf.
Driving under the influence, or DUI, is one of the most frequently charged crimes in California and nationwide. The fight against drunk driving is taken extremely seriously by law enforcement and legislators alike, meaning the penalties and collateral effects can impact all areas of one’s life.
From license suspension and increased auto insurance costs to jail time and heavy fines, a DUI conviction can have significant consequences. You must involve a qualified attorney as soon as possible to protect your license, your record, and your freedom.
Traffic tickets are the most common citations issued by law enforcement in Southern California and across the country. Most drivers will receive a traffic ticket at some point in their lives. Traffic tickets require paying fines, which can significantly increase your car insurance rate and even result in a driver’s license suspension.
There is a multitude of laws that regulate driving, and the penalties you may face for a traffic violation depend on the specific circumstances of your case.
Legal penalties such as incarceration or paying a fine are difficult to deal with but oftentimes the most damaging consequence of a criminal conviction is the stigma of having a criminal record.
Criminal records can adversely affect your career and personal life because many people are reluctant to associate with those who have been found guilty of a crime. However, if you have paid your debt to society you may be eligible for an expungement (also known as a dismissal), which is the legal term for having your conviction removed from your record.
You will no longer be required to disclose the conviction when asked if you have a criminal record during a job interview and you can lawfully answer “no” when asked if you’ve ever been convicted of a crime. Under Penal Code 1203.4 an expungement removes “all penalties and disabilities” arising out of a criminal conviction; in other words, it wipes your slate completely clean. Therefore if you have been convicted of a crime it is in your best interest to hire an attorney to have it expunged as soon as possible.
