Ventura Felony Lawyer
Are you charged with a felony crime?
A felony charge is a very serious legal problem, as a conviction could usually not only result in prison time, fines, restitution for victims, mandated treatment programs and other penalties, after your time has been served you will never again enjoy the degree of freedom that you had prior to the conviction. Getting any quality employment will become difficult, and in certain types of felony offenses such as sex crimes, you could have restrictions on where you are allowed to live or work. There are many professional licenses that are not available to those with a felony conviction. If you are facing felony charges, it is absolutely critical that every possible defense action is taken as early as possible.
