La Mirada Criminal Defense Attorney

Former Prosecutor to Defend Your Case

If you have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony crime, you could be facing very serious repercussions in a conviction. Even a misdemeanor offense often has up to 12 months in jail as a possible penalty. The criminal justice system is extremely tough in California, and once you are caught in the system, very bad things can happen. You need help now from a La Mirada criminal lawyer from the Law Office of James Mendez. The firm's founder, Attorney Mendez, spent 10 years serving as a Deputy District Attorney for the county; he has extensive trial experience and a great deal of knowledge regarding the best strategies for defending criminal charges. Contact the firm before your case progresses any further through the system. Do not answer questions, or appear in court without representation. Serious problems can take place even at a bail hearing - you could have bail set so high that you are stuck in custody. Let him fight for you at every step of the process.

The firm is involved strictly in criminal defense, and in defending both felonies and misdemeanors. There are heavy penalties for many offenses in this state, particularly violent crime. If you are accused of any assault, or domestic violence, the impact on your life in a conviction is likely more than you expect. You will spend time in jail or prison; owe heavy fines and will often be required to attend treatment classes. Your criminal record will forever reflect the conviction, making getting quality employment very difficult, once you are free. Contact the firm now.
