Facing criminal charges?
Being arrested for a crime is a very frightening ordeal for the average person. You are likely to be very concerned about going to jail and paying high fines. You may be wondering what your legal options are and if there is anything you can do to beat your charges. A criminal conviction can and will affect all aspects of your personal and professional life. Whether you are facing misdemeanor charges or
felony charges, a permanent criminal record can tarnish your reputation and damage your career. Fortunately, having the right Bellflower criminal defense attorney fighting in your corner can benefit you in numerous ways. The Law Office of James Mendez is a
criminal defense firm that has successfully helped their clients obtain reduced sentences and penalties. They have even helped their clients get their charges dropped entirely.
An arrest can lead to a devastating criminal conviction, which would affect nearly every aspect of your life. A criminal conviction would not only mean a permanent criminal record, but it can mean a strike under California's "three strikes" law, and it could also mean incarceration, probation or parole, victim restitution, heft monetary fines, community service, and possible sex offender registration. What's more, a permanent criminal record could seriously damage your ability to gain employment, housing, educational loans and certain professional licenses. Many employers will not hire someone with a criminal record, especially in fields where cash is involved, or children, or merchandise that's for sale.
