Why Should
I Hire A
Defense
Attorney?

Many people wait until the last possible moment to hire a criminal defense attorney, however it is important that this is handled early on in the process so your attorney can start fighting on your behalf. In some cases, lawyers can try to negotiate a dismissal of the charges before they are even officially filed. After an arrest, hiring an Orange County defense attorney should be your top priority to ensure that you will be able to effectively fight the charges against you.

The Orange County State Attorney’s Office is known to aggressively pursue criminal convictions, so without a skilled Orange County criminal lawyer on your side, you may receive a harsher sentence. In fact, the sentence recommendations in Orange County cases typically far exceed the minimum sentences required by law. Those who have been charged with crimes in Orange County refer to it as being “behind the orange curtain” because the county differs so greatly from others in California and in the rest of the United States.

Because of these reasons, it is essential that you seek professional representation in your criminal case to avoid an unwarranted sentence. Our team of defense attorneys has decades of experience representing individuals who are facing criminal charges in Orange County. Our lawyers understand the criminal court process in this county inside and out, and are well prepared to take on your case to obtain the best outcome possible. Hiring a defense attorney from outside of the county will not be as beneficial to you, since they will not have the knowledge of the unique Orange County courts that The SoCal Law Network provides to clients.

If you or a loved one is in need of an Orange County criminal defense lawyer, contact the team at The SoCal Law Network to speak with a highly skilled lawyer. Call (949) 305-7995 to schedule a free consultation today.

Frequently asked questions

jjjj

What are My Rights if I Get
Pulled-Over by A Cop?

Upon being pulled over, you must provide identification information. That’s it. You do have the right to remain silent and the right to refuse a Police Officer’s request to search your vehicle unless you are on search and seizure terms, formal probation or parole or the Police Officer obtains a warrant to search your vehicle.

Can an Officer Pull
You Over for No Reason?

An officer needs an objective violation of law to stop and detain an individual. Police Officers do not have unfettered discretion to stop and detain an individual absent reasonable suspicion that a crime has occurred or is in the process of occurring. Thus, an officer’s subjective opinion that an individual’s driving is unusual does not justify a detention in the absence of objective, reasonable cause to believe that there was a violation of the vehicle code or a violation of some other law.

How Do I Choose a
Criminal Defense Attorney?

In choosing a criminal defense lawyer, make sure that the attorney has the requisite knowledge and training to defend you against the charges. Being familiar with the courts, the judges and the prosecutors is important as well. The criminal defense attorney should also have positive reviews and accolades both from former clients and from other lawyers in the community; you should look to see whether the attorney is a member of those organizations that are dedicated to keeping its members up-to-date on all the recent changes in the law and in the advances of the defenses behind the charges.

How do I know if I have
been charged with a crime?

Simply because you were arrested for a crime does not mean you were charged with a crime; it means you were arrested. In some cases, the arresting agency can direct file a charge with the court, but in the majority of cases, the arresting agency will forward the documentation to a prosecutor’s office, and wait for them to file a complaint or indictment. There are also situations, in complex criminal matters, in which an individual who has not been detained or arrested can be charged with a crime, and the investigating agency will contact an individual for an interview or issue search warrants to try to locate more evidence.
