Criminal Defense

megamenu_01Have you been charged with a felony or misdemeanor offense in Salinas, Hollister, or elsewhere in Monterey County? You are not alone. Over a million arrests are made in California every year. Many of those who have been arrested are guilty of nothing more than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Unfortunately, being innocent of an alleged crime is no guarantee that you won’t be convicted of it. The best way to fight your charges after an arrest and avoid prison time, expensive fines, and the other consequences of a criminal conviction is to partner with a dedicated Monterey County criminal defense attorney as soon as possible after you have been charged. A good Salinas criminal defense lawyer can help you safeguard your rights and your reputation after an arrest and keep you from becoming wrongly convicted of a crime that you didn’t commit.
