Felony Crime Lawyers in Monterey County

Years of Experience Providing Aggressive Advocacy for Clients

While most felony cases in California are punishable by a prison term, a good lawyer can help you seek a dismissal, avoid a jail term, reduce a sentence, or arrange for alternative sentencing. Our Monterey County felony crime attorneys will sit down with you to discuss the facts of your case and evaluate your legal options. We aggressively pursue your every legal option to secure a favorable outcome on your behalf.

We represent clients in a range of litigation related to:

  • Murder or homicide
  • Manslaughter
  • Assault
  • Rape
  • Kidnapping
  • Stalking
  • Physical abuse
  • Elder abuse
  • Drug possession
  • Weapons Charges
  • Grand theft

Even if you receive probation, a felony conviction can affect your job prospects, housing opportunities, and quality of life. Most first-time felony convictions, with the exceptions of traffic crimes and sex crimes, are eligible to be expunged (erased) from your criminal record. Our attorneys can advise you further on your legal options.

In March of 1994, California enacted the Three Strikes law. The law carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years to life for the third felony conviction. California is the only state that prosecutes non-violent felony offenses under the three strikes law. More than half of all Californians imprisoned under this law have been convicted for non-violent offenses like shoplifting and drug possession rather than violent crimes.
