Orange County Burglary and Theft Defense
Theft crimes cover a broad spectrum ranging from petty theft or shoplifting to armed robbery or grand larceny. First degree burglary charges are charged as felonies, a second degree burglary can also be charged as a felony when the value of the stolen item is above $400. However, there is a “Three Strikes Law” which is a severe felony. Traditionally, the punishment is a maximum of 3 years behind bars provided nobody has been hurt during the actual robbery. If the charge is a misdemeanor the sentence is usually for one year behind bars and 3 years for probation.
You’ll find that the prosecutor will be hell bent on proving your intent to steal before walking into the place where the theft took place. Our Orange County theft attorney’s job will be to prove that there was no premeditation on your part. We’ll examine the evidence, both circumstantial and direct while giving you detail oriented personalized attention. The first order of things is to help you avoid a conviction altogether if and when that’s not possible we’ll work on reducing the sentencing or we’ll work out the details for a favorable plea bargain.
Orange County White Collar Crimes Defense
Non-violent crimes involving commercial or financial activity are known as white collar crimes. We often get images of the Wolf of Wall Street when we think about white collar crimes. But sometimes a white collar crime starts off with seemingly benign intention. A good person who needs money may find themselves deliberately misrepresenting information on financial or insurance documents to borrow some money with the intention of paying it back at a later date. Depending on the amount of money acquired you could end up facing state or federal felony charges. Usually, investigations begin before you even think that you may be under suspicion, this means that investigators are one step ahead of you. Often these crimes are nicknamed “get rich quick” schemes.
Our Orange County white collar defense lawyers understand that criminal charges do not define who you are as a person, good people make mistakes. We have the experience and commitment to represent you both in state and federal court.
Orange County Sex Crimes Defense
As soon as you’re accused of a crime you’ll be burdened with the criminal justice system’s intricacies. Unfortunately, it appears that the court of “public opinion” outways the presumption of innocence. You can quickly find that the nature of the sexual violation carries a life lasting stigma. Our Orange County sex crimes lawyers know that the key to your success lies in shifting the focus away from the nature of the charges to prove that these are just accusations. Experience has taught us that it will all boil down to credibility of the accuser. Your first step is to remain silent and only speak to a skilled sex crime defense attorney in a private setting.
Our first priority is to protect your rights and dignity and to do so we’ll strive to ensure that the judge, jury members and prosecutor learn both sides of the story. We’ll untiringly and aggressively challenge the witness statements as well as your accuser’s statements to discover any inadmissible evidence.

Orange County Violent Crimes and Murder Defense
Regardless of how calm, cool, and collected you’d like to think you are, tempers can flare at the most inopportune times. Assault is one of the most prevalent charges, especially in domestic violence cases. However, it bears noting that an “attack” doesn’t have to be physical it can, in fact, be a verbal threat. So, if you’ve ever screamed the words, “I’ll kill you” to someone in the heat of an argument, this can be considered assault!
Aggravated assault is a significantly more severe charge as it tends to include the use of weapons and it can lead to physical harm. Prosecutors often charge these as felony offenses. In these situations we’ll strive to show the judge that this was an isolated event and we’ll work toward proving that you do not represent a threat to society. Depending on your case and circumstances our Orange County murder lawyers work toward getting you the most beneficial results. If you’ve been charged with kidnapping, homicide, intent to commit homicide or murder be sure to give us a call right now, you can’t afford to wait any longer.
Depending on the evidence against you, we may need to get a psychological evaluation while we execute our own investigation of the crime. We are often able to humanize you by using information about your upbringing, background, and mental health. Contact us now to lock in the best homicide defense.
