Preparing Your Criminal Defense Case to Win! by J. White

You or a loved one has been arrested and are now facing criminal charges. Anxiety levels are high. Jobs are in jeopardy. Families are in disarray. Funds are limited. Your head is swimming and you don’t know where to turn. Do we post bail? Do we hire a lawyer? What does our future hold?

You should know that there is no such thing as an impossible case. Some cases are tougher than others, but there’s almost always a solution to be had. Your goal should be to obtain the best solution for your particular situation. That might mean fighting your case all the way to trial. It may mean obtaining a dismissal of the charges based on violations of your constitutional or procedural rights. Or it might mean obtaining the most favorable plea bargain possible.

A skilled and experienced Criminal Law Specialist can certainly help you define and achieve your goal. The old adage says, “knowledge is power.” Applying that adage to your case, the more you know about the way a serious felony case moves through the court system and the more you know about possible consequences, the more equipped you will be to make informed and rational decisions. The purpose of this book is to do just that, to give you a general overview of the way serious felony cases are handled in California. It is my hope that with this information you and your lawyer can work together to achieve the best result for your case.
