People get caught up in the wrong place at the wrong time all too often, and unfortunately, they suffer life-altering repercussions as a result. A simple allegation can go a long way, which is why our Santa Ana criminal defense lawyer works to alleviate the impacts of your case no matter what it takes. As a former police officer, Attorney Jason L.

Many people wonder if they should either give up or fight their criminal charges. As daunting as the criminal justice system may be, it is essential to challenge your criminal accusations rather than let the system win. To best accomplish this, our Santa Ana criminal defense lawyer will aggressively challenge your charges in court and stand up for your rights with the utmost dedication and professionalism.
You’d be surprised to learn how badly prosecutors want to resolve cases, as they are often overwhelmed with unmanageable caseloads 24/7. While we want to resolve your case just as badly, our attorney will not do so by settling for less than what you deserve. Instead, we will powerfully protect your freedom at every stage of the process, closely guide you through the system and negotiate for the best possible outcomes in your case, which is enough to discourage prosecutors from dragging out a case further. If you show the prosecution that you are serious about protecting your liberties and future by equipping yourself with aggressive defense, you can maximize your chances of getting your charges reduced or dropped altogether.
In addition, fighting your criminal charges can better help you avoid the personal and professional consequences of a conviction, which include:
- Lengthy jail time
- Steep fines
- Restitution to the victim(s)
- Community service
- Mandatory participation in rehabilitation and support programs on your dime
- Criminal record
- Barriers to employment, housing, education, family relationships and financial aid
- Bad reputation
