Santa Ana Residents Can Depend On Us
The advantage of enlisting a trusted Santa Ana defense attorney is in having a thorough criminal defense. Our law firm has extensive experience preparing and litigating criminal cases in both civilian and military courts. We pore over official police reports to determine whether law enforcement used proper procedures in executing your arrest. We also consider whether police had proper grounds to stop you in the first place, and whether evidence was collected in an appropriate manner. Improper police procedures violate your constitutional rights and may be grounds for exclusion of damaging evidence or dismissal of your charges. We explore every meaningful advantage to defend your criminal case.
Trusted Defense for California DUI Charges
California law prohibits driving under the influence (DUI) of dangerous drugs or alcohol. The threshold blood alcohol concentration (BAC) in DUI cases is .08 percent. This limit is much lower for commercial drivers and motorists under the age of 21—.04 and .01 percent, respectively. The penalties for even a first time DUI offense are significant, so having a proven Santa Ana criminal defense attorney is critical. Penalties include jail time, a costly fine, temporary loss of driving privileges, and even being forced to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle at your own expense. Our office has helped clients throughout southern California defend DUI charges since 1997.
Respected Domestic Violence Lawyers
California law takes a hardline stance against individuals convicted of domestic abuse. Even misdemeanor convictions carry lengthy jail sentences, expensive fines, probation, and more. Knowledgeable Santa Ana criminal defense lawyers are critical in these cases since the government employs a team of prosecutors assigned specifically to prosecuting domestic violence cases. Our office has the trial experience needed for a strong criminal defense. We have defended domestic violence charges for more than 20 years with considerable success.
