I have 24 years of experience as a criminal law attorney, and criminal cases are the only cases I handle. These cases range from DUI to murder.
DUIs are classified as criminal cases. You need someone experienced in Criminal Law to help you fight to the fullest extent.
You want a lawyer who will personally handle your file and will be available for consultation, Monday - Friday during regular business hours. I will fairly evaluate your case and determine the most favorable course. I will not hesitate to go to trial on your case; that decision, however, will ultimately be yours.
You are looking for a lawyer who will only tell you what you want to hear. I will work with you to honestly assess the facts of the case.
I personally communicate with you whenever possible. If I am in Court when you call, you can leave a message. I personally guarantee you will hear back from me in 24-hours, or less - most often, much less. My office phone is (209) 235-6000.
The cost varies depending on the allegation and facts of the case. A fee will be quoted at our initial consultation.
My level of experience, knowledge of the law, and personal familiarity with the judges, prosecutors, and system is a great advantage. In addition my personal and regular contact with clients, availability and involvement with every aspect of the case bring the most favorable results.
Depending on the type of case I like to find out as much as I can about the facts of the case and talk to anyone who can help our defense. At that time we can discuss our options. The stronger our defense appears to the prosecutor, the better our chances are of getting a favorable result.
During our initial consultation, I will answer any questions. Please call (209) 235-6000.
The California Judicial Council adopted section 36 of the California Standards of Judicial Administration, Guidelines for Diversion Drug Court Programs, effective January 1, 1998. Drug courts are a relatively new part of our judicial system, having been around nationally only since the 1990s. These courts have proven to reduce the rate of recidivism and cost to taxpayers when compared to conventional penalties that include prison sentences. In the case of a marijuana offense, drug courts will typically refer participants to a marijuana program in order to treat their marijuana dependence rather than punish them for it. Marijuana Rehabilitation Centers are private entities that must adhere to state guidelines in order to be used by participants of drug court.
Even in cases where the penalties might not seem severe enough to want to participate in a marijuana treatment program, you may still wish to pursue drug court due to the benefit of having your charge dismissed. A dismissed marijuana charge is far more desirable than a conviction when it comes to your record. Convictions may have to be reported on job, school, and licensing applications.
