DUIs are one of our primary defense specialties at Solution Law. Although typically charged as a misdemeanor, drunk driving in Southern California can be tried as a felony if aggravating circumstances exist, such as prior DUI convictions and/or your DUI arrest involving an accident that resulted in injury or death to someone under criminal law.

Drug Offenses

We have successfully defended narcotics possession and sales cases, as well as cultivation or manufacturing with intent to sell, for nearly three decades. Additionally, we have also established numerous tight working ties with local drug/alcohol rehabilitation and alternative sentencing programs around Orange County, CA. To genuinely aid our clients facing drug accusations, we know that we must not only vigorously defend them in court, but also assist them in finding a route to sobriety.

Theft Offenses

Theft offenses can range in severity from minor infractions or misdemeanors like petty theft and grand theft to more serious felony theft offenses like residential burglary and embezzlement. Even minor theft-related convictions can have a negative impact on your future, with ramifications that go beyond fines, probation, and jail time.

Some examples of collateral repercussions include deportation, loss of professional license, loss of work, or disqualification from employment eligibility. For all of these reasons, our goal will always be to seek agreements with prosecutors that include either dismissal of charges by deferred entry of judgment, or “Spit and Acquit,” as Orange County refers to it. In other cases, plea bargains involving non-theft offenses might be achieved through conversations with prosecutors.

Violent Crimes

Violent crimes have a ton of different variables. These crimes are perhaps the most necessary area to acquire expert representation in. A violent crime is defined as an act involving the use or threat of force against someone in which the primary goal is the violent act. These offenses can vary from misdemeanors like simple violence and assault to felony charges like murder, robbery, and assault with a dangerous weapon. Furthermore, violent crimes can include criminal threats and stalking that do not involve actual physical contact or even injury.

Many violent crimes are classified as “wobblers,” which means they can be punished as misdemeanors or felonies under criminal law. Domestic violence is the most widespread, and as with all violent crimes, it is rigorously pursued and carries serious consequences.

When Should You Hire a Criminal Defense Lawyer?

Regardless of your charges, you need a defense lawyer immediately. This is especially true if you are facing misdemeanor or felony criminal charges. Then, you should seek a lawyer to assist you in navigating the criminal justice system. You may believe you can represent yourself on anything relatively insignificant at first, but you never know what could effect your profession and livelihood, as well as your reputation or business.

As a result, whenever your future is at stake, you should look for an experienced law company to represent you and help protect your rights.

Bottom line: Hiring a lawyer is critical if you are facing felony charges of any kind.

Anyone facing a criminal charge should consult with a criminal defense professional as soon as possible after their arrest. Waiting could result in a legal blunder that jeopardizes your future. Often enough, you’ll see defendants attempt to acquire representation too late. Then, you’re left with poor representation. Don’t put yourself at risk.
