HOW THE RIGHT LAW FIRM CAN HELP YOU!
If you or a loved one have been arrested or charged with a crime, the most important call you can make will be to a criminal defense attorney.
Violating the law can bring severe penalties.
There is nothing more important than having an aggressive and experienced law firm on your side. We may be able to get your charges reduced and in some cases dismissed. If jail time is inevitable, an exceptional lawyer may be able to get this jail time reduced or convince the court to allow a suitable alternative to jail time such as home monitoring, work furlough, or drug rehabilitation.
- Criminal defense is a highly specialized area of law. We know the law, we know the system, we understand what criminal defendants are going through, and we know how to get results.
- If charges have not been filed against you and the case is still under investigation, many times the right defense attorney can persuade the police and the prosecutors not to file charges against you. This is often easier to do than getting charges dismissed after they have all been filed.
- During the early stages of your case, we develop the best strategies and aggressively pursue them in your defense. Early planning gives us a head start on the prosecution and gives us more time to conduct thorough investigations and legal research.
- We look at each client as an individual, and make sure that the court views you as an individual. Our clients do not get lost in the busy court calendar, and their cases get the attention they deserve.
- We make sure that you understand the details of your case and the progress being made every step of the way. We review your case with you, answer your questions, and give you the information you need to make informed, intelligent decisions.
What is our goal?
Our goal is to achieve the best results for our clients, whether it be dismissal, acquittal by a jury, or an effective plea bargain. To that end, we use the full extent of our expertise, talents and resources in each and every case to achieve optimum results.
Our offices are conveniently located near you.

If you or a loved one has been arrested or charged with a sex crime or sexual abuse crime in California, the most important call you can make will be to your criminal defense lawyer. Violating the laws in California can bring very severe penalties. There is nothing more important than having an aggressive and experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. An aggressive and experienced law firm may be able to get your charges reduced and in some cases dismissed.
In California, sexual behavior is considered criminal when it is one of the following offenses:
There are many types of sexual assault, but in California, it includes any type of unwanted physical contact with any sexual organs. Most sexual abuse and sexual assault crimes are felonies. In some states the laws include provisions against aggressive sexually suggestive statements, where no physical contact occurs.
Physical contact is considered “unwanted” if the victim did not legally consent to such contact. The contact is unwanted if the victim said “no”, physically objected or was intoxicated or incapacitated to the point of not being able to give consent.
In California, statutory rape is defined as illegal sexual activity between two people under the age of 18. There are also laws and penalties, including age restrictions, for sexual relations between a person of authority, such as a teacher, pastor, priest, police officer, coach or tutor, and the person under his or her authority. These laws can vary and are dependant upon the circumstances of each case. Statutory rape charges are most often brought up by the parents of the victim, but in California, like most states, they can be raised by the state. The State can file charges against you if you impregnate someone who is under 18 even when the underage party objects to the charges.
Date Rape is forcible sexual contact during a voluntary social engagement in which a person does not intend to submit to the sexual advances and resists. The fact that the engagement was voluntary and the parties were acquainted is not a defense to this type of charge.
Prostitution, solicitation, pandering and pimping are either considered felonies or misdemeanors in the State of California. Prostitution is defined as any person who receives payment for sexual intercourse or any other sexual act. Pimping is defined as any person soliciting acts of prostitution or pandering on behalf of another. Although a misdemeanor, it is considered a crime to engage in the hiring of a prostitute to perform sexual acts for payment.
Lewd acts, lascivious conduct and indecent exposure are usually charged as misdemeanor crimes in the State of California. These crimes involve pornography, engaging in sexual acts while in a public place and exposing the genitals in a public place.
If you are facing any of these very serious California sex crimes, you need the assistance of an experienced California criminal defense attorney who is compassionate about your situation and will work hard to defend you.
Our goal is to achieve the best results for our clients, whether it be dismissal, acquittal by a jury, an effective plea bargain or alternative sentencing. To that end, we use the full extent of our expertise, talents and resources in each and every case to achieve optimum results.
