Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney
Defending the Accused Throughout Orange County, California
If you have been charged with a crime in Orange County, it is very important
that you take the necessary steps towards protecting yourself and your
rights. With the help of an experienced defense attorney, you can fight
to defend your freedom. Many criminal offenses can result in serious penalties
such as extensive jail time, fines, community service, and various other
consequences. Not only do you have the legal aspect to worry about, you
also have the social implications of a criminal record. If you are a convicted
felon, you could find it difficult to have access to the same benefits
as other individuals without a record.
Orange County criminal defense lawyers at The Law Office of Bruce C. Bridgman are fully dedicated to providing
each client with experienced legal advice and aggressive representation.
If you have been charged with a
DUI, no matter whether it was multiple DUI or an underage DUI, they can help
you get through the details. People charged with a
violent crime (such as assault, battery, murder, manslaughter, and
domestic violence), face particularly grim consequences as these are some of the most harshly
pursued crimes in on both the state and federal level. Similarly,
drug crimes face harsh penalties – especially when the drug is associated with
people who commit violent crimes.
Driving under the influence of alcohol is one of the most common crimes
across the country. This, however, does not make it any less serious.
If you are convicted of DUI, you could be left facing time in prison,
heavy fines, and the suspension of your driver's license. In California,
you can be arrested for drunk driving if you are found to have a blood
alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or above. If a law enforcement officer
notices that you are swerving, braking erratically, or exhibiting any
other type of strange behavior on the road, they could have reasonable
cause to pull you over. They may either ask you to perform a field sobriety
test or may ask you to breath into a breathalyzer device. Although you
have the right to refuse these tests, you will have to face the automatic
suspension of your license if you do. It is, however, easier to defend
yourself against DUI if there is no strong evidence against you.
Importance of Consulting with an Experienced Criminal Lawyer
If you have been charged with a
theft crime (such as fraud or burglary), a
weapons crime or other, they understand there is more to the situation than meets the
eye. At this firm, criminal charges like
white collar crimes are no match for the experience they have. They have even established
a strong reputation for defending clients against some of the most stigmatized
crimes, such as
sex crimes like sexual battery, statutory rape, and prostitution, that are hard for
almost everyone to get past. Their familiarity with these types of crimes, from
federal crimes to
strike crimes, makes them unparalleled. Regardless of whether you are personally facing
a criminal charge or if you have a child dealing with a
juvenile crime charge, you can be confident knowing that they are adept at representing
clients and are knowledgeable at helping clients get through the appeals process.
If you have been convicted of any of these crimes, you do not have to
give up. In the state of California, you have the right to
appeal the decision in court. If you feel as though you were not treated fairly,
a criminal appeal will let you take you case to another court. It is vital
that you receive justice and their legal team will help you fight to secure
your freedom. They understand how difficult it is to be convicted for
a crime you did not commit. They also understand that many are sentenced
too harshly and need their sentence to be changed. By taking your case
to another judge and jury, you could get your guilty verdict removed or
your sentence reduced. Not all criminal defense attorneys have the ability
to handle appeal cases as they can be very complicated and time-consuming.
A defense lawyer from The Law Office of Bruce C. Bridgman has the necessary
appellate experience to fight for you in court.
In the immediate wake of a criminal charge, it is likely that you will
feel frightened, exhausted, and emotionally distressed. Criminal charges
are one of the most stressful situations that you can possibly imagine
and are not something that should be taken lightly. They can have long-lasting,
life-altering ramifications on the rest of your life; your future is simply
too important to leave up to chance.
For this reason, it is absolutely imperative that you do not hesitate to
secure the legal guidance of an experienced, knowledgeable attorney as
quickly as possible. By working with a lawyer that you can trust, you
can begin to take the essential steps required to protecting your rights
and giving you the edge you need to get towards your optimum outcome.
This is not the time to trust your future to the hands of an inexperienced,
apathetic attorney – you need someone with the resources and the
desire to properly assist.
