Are you, or a loved one facing criminal, narcotics or DUI charges in the Long Beach, Torrance, Seal Beach or Santa Ana, California areas? Do you know the administrative, financial and legal repercussions of a criminal or DUI conviction? A criminal or DUI conviction, even a misdemeanor conviction, can disrupt your life and impact your freedom, your academic status if you are a student, your driving privileges, your ability to earn a living and provide for your family. If the charges are serious enough you may also lose custody of your children. You stand to lose a lot if convicted of a crime (even a misdemeanor) or DUI. Attempting to navigate through the California legal system alone can go horribly wrong.

    -Practice Area: Criminal defense 
    -Outcome: Case dismissed before trial! 
    -Description: The prosecutor offered my client 15 days in jail in a case that could have been filed as a misdemeanor or a felony. The client insisted that if I would take the time to go look at the place where he was arrested, I would see that the arresting officer had lied in the arrest report. I took the time to do that and I made the decision to file a motion to suppress evidence (1538.5 motion) and also to invoke my client's right to a speedy trial. The judge ended up dismissing the case before trial when the prosecutor had to announce on the first day of trial that he was not ready to proceed. Case dismissed. Bail returned to client.

The client didn't need to pay me for trial representation because no trial was needed. The client was very happy about this. The judge will also allow her to get her probation terminated as soon as she completes the community service and pays some fines. That will allow her to get back on her feet quickly and get this case expunged from her record.
