Serious or Violent Crimes in California

A conviction for a serious or violent crime can have devastating consequences. Often times, police may rush to arrest and fail to complete a thorough investigation or the case can be overcharged by a prosecutor. Because of the increased penalties for these offenses, avoiding a conviction for a violent crime is more important than ever.

 

If you are investigated for a serious or violent crime, do not answer any questions from the police without your attorney present. Call Garcia Law Group (323) 419-5175 and make sure your rights are not violated!
