How Our Ventura Criminal Defense Team Can Help

Being caught in the criminal justice system is not only frightening, it is extremely dangerous. Even being completely innocent of the criminal charge is not a guarantee that you will be found not guilty. There are many innocent individuals serving time who failed to have the level of representation needed to defend them effectively. If you have been arrested and charged, the prosecutor believes that there is enough evidence to convict you. How this is addressed and the final outcome of your case will be determined in large part by the quality and experience of your defense counsel.

There are heavy penalties for a criminal conviction, including:

  • Jail / prison time
  • Restitution
  • Mandated treatments
  • Fines

The personal cost can be devastating both to you and your and loved ones if you are not represented by an attorney that has experience, insight and exceptional talent at trial. We are proud to have achieved an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest possible peer review rating, a measure of our commitment to excellence. We are also rated 10/10 in client satisfaction and A+ by the Better Business Bureau. We urge you to contact our firm without delay if you are facing charges and need a defense lawyer that has the skills, record of success and talent to professionally defend your case.
