Los Angeles Criminal Lawyer

If you need a Los Angeles criminal lawyer, you need an attorney who performs criminal defense services exclusively. At the Law Offices of David S. Chesley, INC, we specialize in the criminal defense practice. We believe that everybody deserves an equal footing in the courtroom. We'll make sure your constitutional rights and due process are upheld from start to beginning, and we will protect your presumption of innocence until proven guilty.

We Leave No Stone Unturned

At criminal law specialists, we will examine all of the facts of your case. This not only includes the specifics of the charges and the nature of the alleged crime, but we also take a long, hard look at the procedural aspects of your case. A lot of times, a person's rights are infringed upon and the whole case can be thrown out. Other times, we are able to raise a reasonable doubt regarding a client's guilt. In the worst case, if a client is convicted of his/her charges, we can argue for the most lenient sentences and plea bargains.

Suspended Sentences for Convicted Clients

Depending on the nature of the charge, the prosecution's willingness to cut a deal, and the client's previous criminal history, we are often able to get a portion of a client's sentence or even the entirety of the sentence suspended. If you have a job and a minimal criminal background, we can potentially get you probation, house arrest, drug court, or even community service instead of jail or prison time.

Take Your Second Chance Seriously

If you are found guilty, and we are able to bargain a suspended sentence for you, be sure that you honor your end of the agreement. This means that you must stay in compliance with the terms of your suspended sentence. Too many times, people think that a little bending of their curfew, a little alcohol, or a little marijuana isn't going to be enough to get their suspended term revoked and them sent to jail or prison. Those of us in the Law Offices of David S. Chesley, INC work with the judges every day. We know their temperament and tendencies. The judges in Los Angeles County consider suspended sentences to be a second chance. Don't expect another one if you mess up your suspended sentence no matter how seemingly mild your error is. You will go to jail or prison every time!
