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. We believe that for a violent crime attorney in Montebello CA to provide a generic, one-size-all defense to any client is irresponsible and unacceptable. We will craft a personalized defense specifically for you, based on the facts of the matter and your input. Three possible strategies include:
- Insufficient Evidence: We will investigate your case carefully to make sure the DA really has enough evidence to justify a charge. If any of the evidence was collected illegally or if we can find new evidence supporting your defense we may be able to get the charges dropped.
- Self Defense: If your charges stem from a physical altercation that was started by the alleged victim, it may be possible to argue that you were really only defending yourself. It takes an experienced violent crime attorney in Montebello CA like us to prove that your conduct met the legal definition for self defense and make this work as a valid defense strategy.
- Plea Deal: If your chances of winning your case in court are low, it is often better to skip the time, expense, and stress of court and resolve the case with a plea deal instead. Our experience in our local county courts helps us to accurately evaluate offered deals and make sure our clients get the most lenient penalty possible in exchange for their guilty plea.
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 example, if you allegedly used a gun in the commission of a felony such as carjacking or kidnapping, you could face an additional 10 years in jail. The laws on sentencing enhancements are extremely complicated and could easily overwhelm a less experienced violent crime attorney in Montebello CA. Fortunately, at The Mattern Law Firm we understand California’s complicated sentencing enhancement laws in detail and we will not be intimidated. Lisa Mattern has the experience needed to fight aggressively to protect you from any undeserved or unduly harsh punishment under these laws.
