If you have been arrested, you undoubtedly have questions about what to do next, the permissibility of police conduct, what defenses may be available to you and what the likely outcome of your case may be. For starters, our Practice Areas page provides detailed information about every type of criminal charge in California. While every case is different, knowing the laws that apply to your case will help you better understand how to proceed. Keeping our clients out of jail and keeping their records clean is our main focus. Criminal convictions can carry severe consequences beyond the courtroom. California Criminal Defense Lawyers need to have a strong grasp of the immigration consequences associated with criminal convictions, as well as the effects your case might have on professional licensing and employment. Sometimes criminal defense is about beating a case outright, but sometimes it is about obtaining a favorable disposition through negotiations.
The likely outcome of a case depends on many factors. The facts of the case, the strength of the government's case against you, your criminal history (if any) and the county and courthouse in which the case is held have a big impact on the outcome of your case. After arrest, most of these factors are out of your control. Hiring a passionate criminal defense attorney whose knowledge, skill and track record you can trust is the most influential course of action you can take.
The criminal justice system in this country is broken, but that doesn't mean it cannot be fixed so that it works for you. Despite the phrase "innocent until proven guilty," good people throughout Southern California are often arrested, charged with crimes and forced to prove their innocence. Career motivated prosecutors do not care what happens to you, will disregard your constitutional rights, and will seek the harshest punishments they can get, even in juvenile cases. Police and prosecutors ARE out to get you. You need someone passionate about your rights on your side. Let us assert your innocence and fight the case against you. You deserve a passionate, committed and powerful criminal defense attorney to advocate your side. Whether you are charged with a small or serious crime, whether you are guilty or innocent, the Law Offices of Nicholas Loncar will fight tirelessly for you and get results.
An arrest does not have to mean a conviction. Criminal charges do not have to mean a conviction. Your charges might be based on inadmissible evidence and there may be inconsistencies in the prosecution's case. Whether through a jury trial, motion to suppress, motion to dismiss or plea bargaining, you need a passionate, committed and powerful criminal defense attorney to fight for the best outcome in your Southern California court case.
For California Driving Under the Influence (DUI) cases, it is important to act to preserve your driving privilege and avoid the harmful effects of a DUI conviction. Upon arrest for DUI, the DMV will automatically suspend your license unless you request a hearing within 10 days of your arrest. This process, known as a DMV Administrative Per Se (APS) Hearing can save your driver's license from suspension and allow you to continue to drive. Your lawyer can raise a variety of defenses at these hearings and to preserve your driving privilege, as well as assert your rights in court to fight the criminal DUI charges. DUI checkpoints and pullovers are very common in Southern California. A good criminal and DUI defense lawyer cares deeply about his clients and their futures, and will work tirelessly to help you through this difficult time.
