The Knowledge of a Former Prosecutor On Your Side
Choosing an attorney with experience as a Deputy District Attorney for
Fresno County gives you a significant advantage. Our attorney spent nearly
8 years as a prosecutor and therefore has highly valuable insight into
the thought processes of the prosecutor trying your case. This enables
us to form a tailored legal strategy which is specially designed to overcome
the challenges of your particular case. We know that a basic cookie cutter
strategy is overwhelmingly ineffective, and it is not something that we employ.
I’m Facing Criminal Charges – What Should I Do?
Although facing charges of criminal activity can be frightening, the most
important thing to do is to remain calm and collected throughout the process.
If you are dealing with law enforcement, be as respectful and cooperative
as possible without incriminating yourself. You have the right to speak
with a lawyer and should reach out to one as soon as possible. The following
suggestions are merely suggestions and do not guarantee any outcomes.
Speaking with a lawyer about your specific circumstances is your best bet
at a favorable result.
Things to remember:
Don’t give the police permission to search your car, property, house, or yourself unless they have a judge-issued
search warrant. Should they search anyway, do not resist the search, but
communicate this circumstance to your lawyer.
Don’t give a voluntary statement to the police. Even a statement that you consider innocent or helpful can become twisted
and be used against you in your case. A lawyer can help you determine
what would be most helpful to say in your given circumstances.
Don’t resist arrest. Resisting arrest is an easy crime for the State to prove against you.
Whatever the case, comply with the police officers present and get in
touch with a lawyer.
ALWAYS ask if you are under arrest. If the answer is yes, you are entitled to know why. If the answer is
no, you are free to leave without talking with law enforcement.
Don’t speak with others about your case. Even your closest friends and family may slip up or misconstrue your
words or meaning if they are questioned by law enforcement. Keep things
simple and don’t discuss your charges.
