  • If being charged for armed robbery and it is evident the defendant is guilty can a lawyer help reduce the sentence?

    if caught red - handed for armed robbery and the DA is offering 16 years can a criminal defense lawyer help reducing the sentence to the minimum ?

    Chris’s Answer

    Yes absolutely - an attorney is a skilled professional who knows the law and the various sentencing options, assuming the DA proves his guilt (being caught "red handed" doesn't necessarily mean anything). Get him an attorney asap.

  • My property was searched by the local police on Feb 5, it is now the 18th and a warrant has still not been provided to my lawyer

    Is it the law that they must provide it within ten days? Or is it provide it when ever they get around to it?

    Chris’s Answer

    The prior poster is mistaken. The police mutt serve a search warrant within 10 days of its issuance by a magistrate. They don't have to give you anything. If a case is filed, your attorney will get a copy of the warrant with the discovery. Penal code section 1534.

    Chris’s Answer

    Can he? Sure - nothing's stopping him. But it won't do any good unless he gets his sentence modified, and if that wasn't discussed prior to his original sentencing, good luck doing it now.

  • Searching for a aggressive representation

    I am not sure if this question is appropriate to be put in this way on the forum . However , one of my very close acquaintances is facing DV charges . The person is a high profile tech professional and is looking to hire a really aggressive hig...

    Chris’s Answer

    I agree with the other posters. "High profile" doesn't necessarily mean good. There are many excellent attorneys who don't feel the need to get on TV every chance they get, and there are lots of excellent attorneys here on AVVO. Contact a number of them and go with whomever you like best, regardless of "profile."
