Get the Best Legal Strategy for Your Specific Case
The legal system can feel very cold and uncaring. The Mattern Law Firm helps to compensate for this because we sincerely care about every client’s future. We believe that for a violent crime attorney in Palmdale 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. The following strategies are particularly useful in violent crime cases:
- Insufficient Evidence: We will exhaust every possible option when looking for evidence to support your innocence–or at least undermine the prosecution’s ability to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. For example, we can interview witnesses to see if we can establish an alibi or show that you have been misidentified as the perpetrator.
- 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. After many years as a violent crime attorney in Palmdale CA, we have become very familiar with the nuances of exactly what qualifies as self defense and what evidence is required to prove it.
- 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. 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 example, if you are charged with an attempted murder that was linked to gang activities, you could face an additional 15 years to life. Sentencing enhancements add another level of difficulty to your case because in addition to defending against the underlying charge, your violent crime attorney in Palmdale CA must also work to disprove the grounds for the sentencing enhancements. At The Mattern Law Firm, we will make sure you are not unfairly punished under any erroneously applied sentencing enhancements.
