No one denies that violent crime is an epidemic in our society. California leads the nation in imposing harsh sentences for violent offenders. Yet countless innocent people get convicted of violent offenses. The reasons are many: mistaken identification, untruthful witnesses, fabricated evidence, sloppy police work, racism, overzealous prosecutors and legitimate self-defense.
This is where we come in.
The Los Angeles criminal defense lawyers of our law firm defend clients in violent crime cases throughout the greater areas of San Fernando, Long Beach, Santa Ana, Riverside and San Bernardino. We have extensive experience defending cases ranging from misdemeanor assault to spousal battery to manslaughter and murder charges.
Our Rancho Cucamonga criminal defense attorneys are former prosecutors and our investigators are former police detectives. This background provides us with a unique insight into how criminal cases are put together by law enforcement. Knowing how the police build assault and murder cases allows our San Bernardino criminal defense lawyers to hone in on the issues and weaknesses in the evidence that can be used to exonerate our clients.
If you or a family member has been accused of or arrested for a battery, weapon or murder charge, we urge you to visit one of our Southern California criminal defense attorneys to discuss the case and how we might be able to help.
