    We Know the Local Long Beach Criminal Courts
    You should expect that every county, courthouse, and judge has its own way of doing things. The criminal court process in Los Angeles County is substantially different from the process in San Bernardino. Even within San Bernardino County, the central courthouse procedures vary greatly from Rancho Cucamonga or Victorville.

    Our California criminal defense attorneys work day in and day out in the same courts, allowing us to create trustworthy relationships with the judges, prosecutors, probation officers, and court staff who will be assigned to your case. We are familiar with how things work in specific courtrooms and with specific prosecuting agencies. Our experience tells us whom to talk to, who has discretion, and the most effective ways to get a particular job done.

    Potential Consequences for Criminal Convictions in Long Beach, CA
    The stakes are high when it comes to criminal charges of any type. A criminal conviction of any kind can have far-reaching and even life-long implications. Depending on the nature and severity of your charges, any past criminal convictions, and the experience and dedication of your attorney, you could face the following legal consequences for a criminal conviction in Long Beach:

    • Loss of privileges such as driving or owning a firearm
    • House arrest
    • Community service
    • Probation
    • Fines
    • Imprisonment

    However, not all criminal conviction consequences are direct legal consequences. Some are collateral consequences that aren’t directly imposed by the court but rather by outside authorities. They vary depending on your conviction but can include:

    • Loss or restriction of a professional license
    • Ineligibility for public funds, including welfare benefits and student loans
    • Loss of voting rights
    • Ineligibility for jury duty
    • Deportation for immigrants

    You might also lose your job or be unable to ever work in the field you love again. Your reputation could be ruined, and you could have the social stigma of a criminal conviction following you around forever. Our attorneys know how crucial the outcome of your case is to you and those you love. You can avoid these consequences by hiring the right legal criminal defense team.
