Criminal Case


Being charged with a crime is a stressful and unsettling experience. Criminal defendants are often uncertain as to the rights that they have or the actions that they can take. If you are charged with a crime, whether it is a felony or a misdemeanor, it is critical to retain a skilled criminal defense lawyer to help you develop a strong defense in hopes of protecting your liberty.

Shaffer T. Cormell is a proficient defense attorney with more than three decades of experience representing criminal defendants in California courts. Mr. Cormell understands the gravity of criminal charges and can provide you with a comprehensive strategy in pursuit of a successful outcome under the facts of your case.

Assault & Battery

Under California Penal Code 240-248, simple battery is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $2,000. Simple assault is also a misdemeanor with the same penalties.

Domestic Violence

Being accused of domestic violence is traumatic. Not only does it significantly damage your relationship, but it also creates the possibility of severe legal consequences. If convicted, you may have to serve a jail or prison sentence, pay expensive fines, have a restraining order filed against you, and/or lose custody rights and 

Drug Charges

If you have been arrested for drug possession or stand accused of selling or manufacturing drugs, you will face harsh penalties in California. You could face mandatory rehabilitation or even years in prison, depending on the offense. A person can face misdemeanor or felony charges for possessing, manufacturing, or selling any controlled substance.

Gun & Deadly Weapon

California has strict laws in place that dictate who can possess and carry a firearm, as well as what types of firearms are allowed. Certain people, such as convicted felons or those convicted of domestic violence offenses, are prohibited from possessing firearms altogether. Possessing or using a firearm in violation of these laws can have severe consequences, but you must remember that you have the right to legal counsel.

We can handle cases involving:

– Unlawful possession of a firearm
– Possession of illegal firearms
– Illegal sale or distribution of firearms
– Brandishing a firearm
– Reckless discharge
– Armed robbery
– Assault with a deadly weapon
