Hit and Run Warrant Recalled and Quashed Despite Heavy Damage to Two Vehicles
Our client, a resident of West Covina or adjacent, was accused of having
hit two vehicles, sustaining heavy losses, and fled the scene of the accident.
The court issued a bench warrant for failure to appear on a previous arrangement.
Our West Covina hit and run charges defense attorneys sprung into action,
convincing the judge to terminate the warrant for our client’s arrest.
This is despite highly unfavorable facts. Even against the most impossible
odds, our citrus courthouse attorneys win for our clients.
Failure To Register Allegation Vigorously Challenged: Years Of State Prison Avoided - Successfully Resolved
Successful negotiation on reduced sentence
Our client faced potentially up to 6 years in prison (3 years high term
times two because of prior strike) for failing to report a change in address,
as is required of § 290 registrants. Instead, he will be going home
in less than 190 days, due to the diligent efforts of our sex crimes defense
attorneys. And his family cannot wait to celebrate! Our client was arrested on his 73
birthday. He was registered at one address but had been caring for his
ailing mother at least twice a week at another address, which authorities
felt triggered a registration violation. Our sex crimes defense lawyers
successfully negotiated with prosecutors and the court to not only cut
in half a proposed sentence term but then double our client’s custody
credits, resulting in a sentence of about 6 months before factoring in
the credit for time already served. Our client will be home well before
his next birthday and in time to continue caring for his mother.
Hit and Run Dismissed, No Jail Time Despite High BAC
Our client was accused of having driven with .15 blood alcohol concentration
(BAC), as well as having hit a parked vehicle and then fleeing the scene
of the accident. Therefore, the prosecutor filed a criminal complaint
alleging three criminal counts (driving while under the influence of alcohol,
driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher and hit and
run, violations of California vehicle code section 23152(a), 23152(b)
and 20002(a), respectively). The court imposed six-figure bail...UNTIL
our attorneys got involved. Our DUI and hit-and-run criminal charges defense
attorneys sprung into action immediately, first with convincing the judge
to reduce bail significantly. The judge granted the bail reduction, our
client made bail and was released from custody. Then, we mobilized to
have the charges dismissed. Facing a potential one year in the county
jail, our client was in jeopardy of being incarcerated and losing his
job. We convinced the prosecutor to drop any jail time at all. Additionally,
the prosecutor threw out the hit and run allegation as well as driving
under the influence of alcohol. Not a single day of jail time was imposed.
Hit And Run Against School Bus (With Property Damage Only)
Our client, a gentleman with a previous criminal conviction, was accused
of "hit and run", a violation of California Vehicle Code Section
20002(a). A new conviction would have most certainly resulted in lengthy
imprisonment on account of his rap sheet. Accordingly, our San Jose courthouse
criminal defense attorneys fought from the very start to have the hit
and run accusation thrown out. Our office was able to get a civil compromise
where our client paid a small amount of restitution for the damage to
the bus (no child or adult passengers were on the bus) at the time of
the collision. Our client received an infraction and avoided a misdemeanor
conviction. He also avoided any jailtime.
Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians declines to take action against our client
Our client, a registered nurse, was charged with driving under the influence
in violation California vehicle code sections 23152(a) and 23152(b). As
a result of our early, efficient and aggressive intervention in her criminal
case, our West Covina Courthouse DUI attorneys were able to resolve the
matter successfully. In addition to accomplishing the successful court
resolution of her case, West Covina board of vocational nursing charges
defense attorneys were able to prevent the board from taking adversarial
action against our clients nursing license. Our client not only was able
to avoid any jail time but is able to keep her vocational nursing license
free and clear of any suspension or revocation.
Prosecutor dismisses child endangerment charge. Our client enters a plea of a lesser offense and no jail time
Our client was charged with having used excessive force while disciplining
his child. Our West Covina child endangerment charges defense attorneys
went to work, arguing that our client was actually acting within the confines
of his parental right to discipline and that he did not act unreasonably.
A conviction of this magnitude would've carried up to one year in
the county jail. Instead, the prosecutor dismissed the child endangerment
charge, our client entered a plea to a lesser offense and no jail time
Domestic violence case thrown out before first court appearance due to our early intervention
Our client, a promising college student with career ambitions, was accused
of having assaulted her live-in boyfriend. The prosecutor was going to
file domestic battery charges against her. A California domestic violence
conviction would have destroyed her life, her dreams and any ambitions
of pursuing her desired career. Our Long Beach courthouse domestic violence
attorneys intervened in her defense in advance of her arraignment. We
advocated on her behalf before the Long Beach city attorney's office
at a city attorney hearing. After doing so, the Long Beach city attorney's
office dismissed her case, deciding not to pursue any prosecution against

Client was previously convicted of having violated Penal Code sections
288(a) and 311.11, also known, respectively, as lewd and lascivious conduct
with a minor and possession of obscene materials. The complaining witness

dismissed of the accusation. Our client could have face to multiple years
in the state prison for this alleged violation. Instead, and our failure
to register charges lawyers got the matter thrown out.
