Our Approach to Your Criminal Case
If you have been arrested in California, you are facing tough prosecution with far-reaching consequences. This is all the more true in the county of Ventura. Laws are in place allowing for substantial penalties, even for offenses such as driving under the influence (DUI) and in Ventura County, these laws are aggressive pursued. Here's how we approach your case:
- We do not simply pick up where the police left off; we start reinvestigating the matter from scratch.
- Our team engages all available resources to determine how the incident occurred and if the initial investigation was complete and accurate.
- We reinvestigate each case thoroughly and attempt to locate additional information that can be used to convince the district attorney to dismiss or reduce the charges.
We leave no stone unturned in our client's defense, regardless if the case involves accusations of violence,
theft, or any other offense.
In short, we do not cut corners or make do with the prosecution's case in chief. We go the extra mile to do whatever it takes to show the court why your charges should be reduced or dismissed.
Aggressive Defense During the Entire Case
After carefully reinvestigating each charge, we can aggressively litigate on your behalf. We maintain constant contact with our clients during each phase of representation. In many circumstances, the client may not have to be present in court but we believe must be informed of every detail of their case. We ensure that our clients are entirely aware of what is going on during each step of the legal process because these factors can affect their lives.
Building on this foundation of thorough investigation and communication, our approach to criminal defense has proven effective. These aspects are essential to the successful handling of a criminal matter. If you have been arrested for any type of criminal offense, you should take action to obtain the legal representation you need. Some of the cases that we handle include, but are not limited to, the following:

juvenile crimes to ensure that the minor's future is not damaged by the offense. In every case, our client comes first.
Defense from a DUI Lawyer in Ventura
One of the primary focuses of our firm is DUI cases. California law carries very strict penalties for those who are convicted of driving with blood alcohol content (BAC) of over .08%, including license suspension, rehab, incarceration, and fines. Those who drive a commercial vehicle have even harsher penalties; they cannot be found with BAC of over .04%! If
commercial drivers are found with any alcohol in their system, then they may be out of service for one day. Likewise,
underage drivers also are held to a higher standard. California has a zero tolerance law for drivers who are under 21, meaning that they cannot have any alcohol in their body, or they will be charged with DUI.
Depending on the seriousness of the offense, a DUI can be charged as both a misdemeanor and a
felony. For it to be a felony, the accident must have caused death or serious injury to a victim. Fortunately, we offer substantial experience helping clients through DUI legal proceedings. Our legal team also handles cases related to
DUI and drugs, as driving under the influence of a narcotic is also an offense in California.
