Society is becoming less tolerant. The legal system continues to get tougher on individual civil liberties. As a result, more people are being convicted of crimes every year-people who might not have faced such harsh penalties in the past. Tougher sentences, mandated by sentencing guidelines, mean that more people are serving longer sentences than ever before-sentences that may not fit the crime.

If you have been charged with a crime in California, you shouldn't gamble with the justice system. You value your freedom. You need to take action to protect it.

San Jose criminal defense attorney William Chestnut has 30 years of experience defending the rights of the accused in California, and he has defended thousands of clients.

Don't ever talk to the police before talking to an attorney. When you choose a criminal defense lawyer, choose one who:

- is committed to strict confidentiality

- will take the time to listen, return your phone calls, and give you honest, practical advice

- will perform a thorough, independent investigation of your case

- has the experience, skill, and positive professional relationships to be a strong advocate for you with police and prosecutors

- has the ability to formulate a defense that will capture the attention of jurors

Attorney Chestnut is dedicated to just this type of personal service, trust, hard work and powerful advocacy.
