Violent Crimes Lawyers
The actions that are considered violent crimes cover a broad range of activities. For example, an assault is regarded as a violent crime.

Sex Crimes Lawyers
Sex crimes involve those crimes involving sexual contact, harm, or other sex-related offenses that the state legislature has deemed to be unlawful. As with all areas of law, the penalties associated with each kind of offense can vary widely based on the nature and severity of the particular crime. Many sex crimes are punished harshly and, if not handled properly, can result in severe and life-altering consequences. Common sex crimes and sex crime-related issues include:
Sexual Assault and Battery
Possession of Child Pornography
Sexual Offender Registration
Due to the sensitive and strictly penalized nature of sex crimes, it is crucial that you seek experienced sex crimes representation. My Rights Law’s attorneys have extensive sex crimes experience and success in defending against those claims.

Theft Crimes Lawyers
Theft crimes generally involve the taking of someone else’s property unlawfully.

You must take the charges seriously, no matter how small or insignificant you think they are. Common theft crimes include:

Drug Crimes Lawyers
Drug crimes are taken very seriously in California and the rest of the county, no matter how small. Depending on the drug and your activities involved with that drug, you can face substantial fines and jail time. For example, a list of drugs, called a “schedule,” categorizes various drugs and the penalties that might apply if you possess, abuse, or distribute them. The penalties could be severe depending on the specific drug and the prohibited action you have been charged with.

Financial and white-collar crimes are those crimes involving money. The charges can involve intentionally depriving someone else of money through a lie or trick, by taking, or through some other improper action to obtain money to which you would otherwise not be entitled.

Crimes Against Justice Lawyers
Crimes against justice are crimes committed to escape or avoid the consequences of a court order, charge, or conviction.

My Rights Law can help when facing these kinds of charges. Crimes against justice include:
Bench Warrant (Failure to Appear, Arrest Warrant)
False Police Report
Obstruction Of Justice
Contempt Of Court
Inchoate Crimes Lawyers
Inchoate crimes become crimes after taking a step towards another punishable crime, often called preliminary crimes. Consider aiding and abetting as a crime. If you take steps to help another person commit a crime, the steps you took to help them complete the crime are punishable because you were involved. However, if you act to assist but there is no underlying crime, you cannot be charged with the crime. Common inchoate crimes include:
Accessory After the Fact
Aiding And Abetting
Juvenile Defense Attorneys
Juvenile offenses are those crimes committed by someone under age 18. Generally, these crimes are charged less harshly unless the magnitude or severity of the juvenile’s actions warrants harsher treatment. Even though these charges may appear less severe, the consequences can remain with you for some time, affecting job prospects, housing, or even higher education. My Rights Law attorneys can help you with your juvenile defense issues. Common issues include:

Public Safety Violation Lawyers
Public Safety Violations are a category of crimes. These are crimes that endanger the public’s wellbeing. Public safety violation crimes are disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, and public intoxication. We discuss these offenses in more detail below.
Crimes Against Government Lawyers
Crimes against the government are those that can affect the safety and stability of the country. As a result, these crimes come with steep penalties if convicted. As the penalties for these crimes are harsh, it is vital that you seek experienced crimes against government representation. Common crimes against the government include:
Rioting and Inciting Riots
Terrorism and Terroristic Threats
Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers
Federal crimes are often the same as state crimes but charged under similar laws but at the federal versus state level of government. The state and federal governments can charge for the same crime because they are two separate governing entities. Common California federal crimes include:
Drug Crimes Involving the Intent to Distribute
Felon In Possession of a Firearm
Restraining Order Lawyers
A restraining order protects one person from physical or verbal threats made by another. A court order sets boundaries and limits on behavior to protect the person being threatened. These orders can protect against actions like:
Threats or acts of violence
Excessive contact via email, text, or phone calls
The court can also require the restricted person to remain a specific distance away from the individual and from specific locations, property, or places of employment and can even require the restricted individual to move out of the residence to comply with the terms of the order.
Pretrial Diversion Program Lawyers
Pretrial diversion programs allow a defendant to go through treatment, classes, payment of restitution, and other court-ordered conditions that ultimately lead to the dismissal of all charges. These programs are typically for first offenders with no criminal background.
In California, there are several different pretrial diversion programs. A first offender’s program covers most misdemeanors called the Misdemeanor Diversion Program. However, there are additional diversion programs for specific crimes, such as drug offenses and bad check offenses. Also, there are diversion programs for those with mental health issues and even one for those in the military.
California law allows for the expungement or the clearing of your record of many convictions. Once your conviction is expunged, you can also have the arrest and all related documents sealed so that there’s no evidence of an arrest.
