Former Prosecutor Fights for the Defense
Are you facing criminal charges in Montebello? The most urgent issue to solve is your legal representation. A Montebello criminal attorney from the Law Office of James Mendez is prepared to evaluate your case and advise you what can be done for your defense. Attorney James Mendez has a great deal of trial experience - on both sides of the aisle. Prior to establishing his private practice, he served as Deputy District Attorney for LA County. This background gives him great insight into how to best plan an effective defense. How juries view a case is the critical issue, and the presentation for the defense must have an impact on them with regard to the evidence in the case. The burden of proof always lies with the prosecutor, and crafting an effective and compelling defense case takes time, work and talent. It is important that the firm gets involved in the defense of your case as early as possible.
The firm practices only criminal defense, and is focused on defending both
felonies. The attorney is very familiar with presenting a case for the defense in a range of criminal accusations, including
domestic violence, and other violent crimes. He defends all types of
DUI offenses, and
sexual crimes. If you are seeking an
expungement, he can help you clean your criminal record. Whether your case involves criminal accusations involving
hit and run, your child is facing legal trouble in
juvenile crimes, or
probation violations, he should evaluate your case at once. Charges related to a
theft, such as
burglary, robbery or other offense should be defended by a skilled attorney. The state has heavy penalties for all types of criminal offenses, and the jails and prisons are overcrowded with those who have been convicted of a range of crimes. Yes, the prosecutor wants to convict you, as is their duty. That does not mean that something cannot be done to fight back, and Attorney Mendez is prepared to offer defense counsel that knows trial law intimately.
