Defending Criminal Charges and Accusations in the Santa Clarita Valley

If you have been accused of a crime, it is vitally important for you to secure legal representation immediately. Some offenses, such as DUI, require fast action in order to prevent serious ramifications and consequences. In a DUI case, an individual must reach out to the local DMV to schedule an administrative hearing within 10 days of the arrest if he or she wishes to prevent the suspension of their drivers' license. With help from a seasoned Santa Clarita criminal defense attorney, you can have your rights and interests represented at your hearing and during the criminal court proceedings. Our legal team works diligently to provide legal representation to clients facing virtually any criminal charge.

Aggressive Defense Backed by 50+ Years of Experience

When defending cases, there are certain critical steps taken in seeking a strong defense for our clients. Our legal team carefully reviews all the evidence that has been gathered against you, looking for the flaws and errors both in police reports, witness statements, and the chain of custody of any evidence. Lab history and procedures may be questioned or challenged. We employ private investigators, ballistics experts, polygraph operators and other experts that can be brought forward to provide evidence in the defense of your case. We aggressively cross-examine those who are providing evidence against you, including law enforcement.

Any flaw or error in the case will be ruthlessly exploited on your behalf. We seek to assist clients in avoiding the full force of the criminal justice system in "not guilty" verdicts, dropped charges, reduced charges or negotiating penalties down. Our outstanding record of success is our best recommendation when seeking an aggressive and highly qualified defense lawyer to fight for you. A strong defense starts from the moment of your arrest. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and will immediately get into action. Contact our firm today to get started!
