Experienced and Aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney in Ventura
We defend misdemeanors, felonies, drug crimes, theft crimes, sex crimes and juvenile crime cases as well as white collar crimes. We know how to work within the criminal justice system for the benefit of our clients, and how to determine an effective defense strategy to employ in court. Our defense actions begin the moment we take on your case. We appear at all hearings for our clients, including bail hearings, and fight for reductions in bail or to have our clients released on their own recognizance when possible. We meet with the prosecuting attorney and the judge to discuss the possibility of arranging an early resolution to the case if this best serves the interest of our client. We pursue a case dismissal whenever possible, and have achieved hundreds of dismissals for our clients over our years in practice. We offer services to individuals facing charges throughout the areas of Oxnard, Santa Paula, Ojai, Camarillo, Fillmore, Port Hueneme, Thousand Oaks and Simi Valley.
Every case we take on is given a full evaluation and review. Every piece of evidence, witness statement, police report, lab evidence or other evidence that led to your arrest will be painstakingly reviewed for defense opportunities. The burden of proof is on the prosecutor. We identify any flaws or weaknesses in the case against you and will expose these flaws in court, leaving room for reasonable doubt. We have served at over 200 jury trials and know how to present a compelling defense case in court - a critical factor if you are hoping to avoid a conviction. We urge you to contact our firm immediately if you are facing charges and need to know that you have representation from a law firm that knows the system, how to fight for you, and is highly rated in criminal law.
