One of the most frequent questions we get from clients is whether or not they should take a plea deal from the prosecutor.
The answer to this question is always the same: It depends on your particular case and situation. In some instances, taking a plea can be in your best interest. In others, it may be better to go to trial.
We are a trusted criminal defense law firm in Orange County, California, and we can assess your case to help you decide what is best for you.
We treat our clients as family and work to get the best possible outcome for their case, whether that is a dismissal, acquittal, or a reduced sentence.
