When you are charged with a criminal offense, you could go to jail.

The consequences of conviction can change the path of your life forever.  A Los Angeles criminal lawyer will fight to try and help make sure that doesn’t happen.

How a Los Angeles Criminal Lawyer Can Help

At Milligan, Beswick, Levine & Knox LLP, you will be represented by a Los Angeles criminal lawyer who is passionate about protecting your Constitutional rights and who will work hard to help you when you are charged with a crime. Our attorneys will:

  • Advise you during police questioning to avoid self incrimination
  • Help determine if you were subject to an illegal search and, if so, prevent the evidence from being used to convict
  • Negotiate plea agreements with prosecutors to keep you out of court and get your charges or penalties reduced
  • Represent you in a criminal trial and/or an appeal

Approaching your charges requires an understanding of the evidence the prosecutor has against you, as well as the available defenses. In many cases, it is enough to raise doubts about the prosecutor’s evidence so the jury won’t convict due to reasonable doubt. You can also defend yourself with affirmative defenses like claiming self defense in an assault case.  Your attorney will help you to choose a strategic response to the accusations against you.
