People often need to hire a Santa Clarita criminal defense attorney with
our office or an attorney from our other office locations when they or
their child have been accused of a crime. While people sometimes associate
this need with a person that has done something wrong, the fact is that
anyone can be accused; it does not mean the person is guilty. People sometimes
find themselves implicated in situations that they have no knowledge of
and were not involved in.
Parents often call our office for issues that come up regarding their children.
This can be a case of a younger teen hanging around with questionable
friends or even gang members. Graffiti, “keying” cars, or
other acts of vandalism can cause thousands of dollars worth of damages.
Shoplifting, burglary, and assault are also, unfortunately, common. With
any luck, this will be a one-time event. Our attorneys can help ease the
strain and consequences of such an event.
Driving Under the Influence (DUI’s) are also a common cause for arrest
in California. If you are arrested or charged with a DUI, it is best to
contact a Santa Clarita criminal defense lawyer with our office or a lawyer
out of our other offices immediately. Acting quickly may be the best hope
of using the DMV hearing process, which can potentially save your license
from being suspended. Our attorneys will assist in getting the best possible
outcome for the client should the case go to court.
Generally, anyone that is arrested for any type of serious crime needs
to hire someone to represent him or her immediately. As most people know
by way of the proliferation of Miranda rights through mainstream television,
anything you say can potentially be used against you in a court of law.
If arrested, it is highly advisable not to speak with anyone without your
attorney present. We can help you through the process.
