If you have been charged with a crime in 90210, then you need a Beverly Hills criminal defense attorney who can help protect your rights and ensure you receive a fair trial. The outcome of a case can be highly dependent on factors that have little to do with the facts of the case. (By the way, PS. are you wondering if you can lose your medical license due to a domestic violence charge in California? We’ve got the answer!)
An overzealous prosecutor or blind targeting by law enforcement can result in a wrongful conviction or harsh punishment unfitting of the crime. Just because you have been charged with a criminal offense does not mean that you are no longer entitled to your basic rights and human dignity.
At Hurwitz Law Group, Inc we are dedicated to defending our clients and working to get them the best possible outcomes.
Role of an Attorney
Our law firm represents individuals who have been charged with crimes ranging in severity from misdemeanors to felonies. We defend our clients by building a case that either justifies their actions or supports their innocence. Our lawyers provide clients with legal advice, as well as help them better understand the charges being brought against them. Being charged with a crime can be a terrifying and stressful experience. We want to help you put forth a strong defense and make sound decisions when it comes to your case.
What We Can Do For You
A skilled criminal defense attorney can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case. The experience and expertise they bring to the courtroom may be the difference between a felony or misdemeanor conviction. This means that rather than spending years of your life in a state prison, your punishment may be reduced to less than a year in county jail or probation instead. In cases involving false accusations, your lawyer can help you maintain your innocence and avoid a wrongful conviction. When your rights are on the line, you need to find an attorney you can trust to defend you.
Reduction of Charges
Crimes are classified as infractions, misdemeanors, or felonies based on the perceived severity and impact. The maximum punishment that can be given out depends on the crime you have been charged with as well as its classification. Often, it is possible to plea down or file a motion to have a charge reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor or a misdemeanor to an infraction. Your attorney will help you pursue all options to ensure the most favorable outcome for your case.
Dismissal of Charges
The legal system is far from perfect, and occasionally there are individuals who fall through the cracks. Even if you know you are innocent, it can be much harder to convince a prosecutor, judge, and/or jury of this. It is important to find a criminal defense lawyer to help you with your case to ensure that you are not among the tens of thousands of people wrongfully convicted in the US each year. Our attorneys will work to get the charges against you dismissed.
