Get the Best Legal Strategy for Your Specific Case
At The Mattern Law Firm, we see all our clients as individuals, with their own needs and priorities. As your violent crime attorney in Hawthorne CA, we will never offer you a generic defense. You can rely on our firm to dedicate ample time and resources to your case so we can create and implement the best possible defense for your specific situation and goals. The following strategies are particularly useful in violent crime cases:
- Insufficient Evidence: Even when the prosecution seems to have an abundance of evidence against you, it may not be enough to secure a conviction. For example, maybe they are depending on a coerced confession, the results of an illegal search and seizure, or merely circumstantial evidence. If the evidence against you is weak, we will work hard to get the charges dropped.
- Self Defense: When violent crime allegations come out of a fight or altercation, self-defense may be a fruitful line of defense. As an experienced violent crime attorney in Hawthorne CA, we understand what constitutes self defense in the eyes of the law and how to prove it.
- Plea Deal: If the evidence against you is too strong for us to hope for an acquittal at trial, we will recommend you take a plea deal. You can rely on us to provide our honest assessment of any plea deals you have been offered by the DA. If the deal is not fair, we will negotiate for a better one.
Are You Facing a Sentencing Enhancement?
The law can be pretty harsh on violent crimes, especially if the circumstances of the offense justify the application of sentencing enhancements. For instance, “using” a gun in the commission of a robbery or kidnapping can add 10 years to your sentence, while actually firing the gun can add 20. Sentencing enhancements add another level of difficulty to your case because in addition to defending against the underlying charge, your violent crime attorney in Hawthorne CA must also work to disprove the grounds for the sentencing enhancements. You can trust The Mattern Law Firm for a compelling defense that includes all aspects of the charges against you, including any sentence enhancements.
