Violent Crime Attorney in Torrance CA

In fact, they are actually likely to be quite aggressive in trying to resolve violent crimes cases, especially if the matter has received media attention.

At The Mattern Law Firm, we will make sure you receive fair treatment and the strongest possible defense. We can handle all kinds of violent crimes including:

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 Torrance CA, we will never offer you a generic defense. 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: 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: 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 Torrance 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. 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?
Many violent crimes already come with significant penalties, which can be made even worse with the application of various 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 Torrance 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.
