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 a Laguna Hills and 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 Laguna Hills and throughout 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 from an Orange County criminal defense attorney in your criminal case to avoid an unwarranted sentence. 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. Learn more about how committed we are to each case by reading the Google Plus reviews of The SoCal Law Network.

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. Our law firm is located in North Laguna Hills in Orange County near the Laguna Hills Mall and Laguna Woods Golf Club. Call (949) 305-7995 to schedule a free consultation today.

important and what do they do?

criminal defense attorney for me?

You need to do your research and have candid discussions with those you may be considering to represent you against a criminal charge or charges.

When can a defense attorney ask for an acquittal?

An acquittal is obtained as a result of a jury trial finding.

What do criminal defense attorneys charge?

offer payment plans?

How to choose a criminal defense attorney?
