We are not afraid to take your case to trial, and we have a proven track record of success in the courtroom. If we can get the charges against you reduced or dismissed, we will do everything in our power to make that happen. 

What to Do When You Are Charged with a Crime

If you have been charged with a crime, the first thing you should do is exercise your right to remain silent. Do not say anything to the police until you have spoken to a lawyer. Anything you say can and will be used against you in court. 

You have the option to work with a public defender, but these lawyers are often overworked and may not have the time to give your case the attention it deserves. 

A better option is to hire a private Laguna Hills criminal defense lawyer who will be able to devote the time and resources necessary to build a strong defense.
