It is important to consider knowledge, experience, reputation, & specialization in the type of crime you’re charged with, & your comfort level with them. They should be able to explain the legal process clearly, answer all your questions, & have a track record of successful outcomes in similar cases.
During your initial consultation, the attorney will typically discuss the details of your case, the possible defenses, potential plea bargains, what to expect in court, & the potential consequences.
Strategies can vary depending on the nature of the charges and the specific facts of the case. Some defense strategies may include challenging the credibility of the witnesses, questioning the legality of evidence, arguing for a reduction in charges, or advocating for a not-guilty verdict based on self-defense, insanity, or lack of intent.
The cost of hiring a criminal defense attorney can vary based on several factors. These factors include the complexity of the case, if the alleged crime involves injury to a victim, or if the person has a prior criminal record, the fees could be higher. It’s also worth noting that the severity of the charges and the nature of the crime can influence the cost.

Client was observed leaving a local bar around 1:00am. The Officer pulled over the client for following too closely and having a taillight out. The Client admitted to drinking alcohol at the bar and performed the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test, the Vertical Gaze Nystagmus test, the walk and turn, and the one legged stand test. The officer observed the client exhibit multiple signs of intoxication. After a two day trial, we were able to obtain a NOT GUILTY verdict in one of the toughest courts in Southern California.

Client was indicted for second-degree felony burglary of a habitation, a charge that could conclude in 2 to 20 years imprisonment. During initial investigations, Client and two other alleged suspects who we are not representing, each admitted to committing the burglary of an unoccupied home while on winter break. The collected statements include that several firearms and a corresponding gun safe was stolen, as well as miscellaneous other items.
After speaking with Client we saw that the Client is remorseful for committing the criminal activity. Client, who is only 20 years old, is intelligent, resourceful, and hopeful of finishing his educational degree and starting a professional career later in life. Any conviction would certainly create a serious hindrance to leading a normal life with gainful employment.
In less than four months, We created a pretrial diversion agreement and presents it to the District Attorney assigned to the case. It was accepted, despite the charges already having been filed. Client and unrepresented defendants are each granted the pretrial diversion agreement and held to its standards.
Instead of facing trial, criminal charges, and potential prison time, Client only needs to complete 24 hours of community service and theft intervention program. If pretrial agreements are not met, the District Attorney can refile the same charges against Client. We are confident that the Client will finish pretrial agreements without incident and was quoted as saying that Client is a “great kid.”
Client was involved in an accident. The person our client hit claimed to have witnessed our client throw a bag of cocaine into the ditch. Police recovered the drugs and confirmed the substance was cocaine. We prepared a Grand Jury Packet, showing the weakness of the Government’s case, the lack of police investigation, and the absurdity of the “witness” statement. The Grand Jury agreed and the case was dismissed!
