Santa Ana, CA Criminal Defense Attorney

In 2018, Santa Ana, California, had a crime rate of 468.39 per 100,000 residents. While this rate is not as high as the national average, it was higher than California’s average of 387 per 100,000 residents.

This means one thing: stringent law enforcement in Santa Ana. While this is good news for the safety of Santa Ana residents, it can be bad news if you are accused of a crime. A single criminal charge can result in years of jail time, not to mention the social stigma that comes with being convicted of a crime.

That’s why it’s critical that you contact a Santa Ana, CA criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible if you have been charged with a crime. The sooner you have representation, the better your chances of beating the charges against you.

How can a criminal defense lawyer help?

A criminal defense lawyer will work tirelessly to build a strong defense on your behalf. He will investigate the circumstances of your case, collect evidence, and interview witnesses. He will also review the prosecution’s evidence against you to look for any holes or inconsistencies.

In addition, a criminal defense lawyer will negotiate with the prosecutor on your behalf. In many cases, they can get the charges against you reduced or even dismissed.

Why Not Just Use a Public Defender?

While you have the right to use a public defender, it is not always in your best interest to do so. Public defenders are often overworked and underpaid. This means they may not have the time or resources to devote to your case.

In addition, public defenders are often inexperienced. This is because they usually only handle a few cases per year. A private criminal defense lawyer, on the other hand, handles dozens of cases per year. This means they have the experience and knowledge to get you the best possible outcome in your case.

With a seasoned Santa Ana criminal defense attorney like Scott C. Thomas on your side, you can rest assured that your case is in good hands. He has a proven track record of success, and he will work tirelessly to get you the best possible outcome in your case.
