Why You Need the Best Attorney for Felony Charges
In the state of California, many felonies include enhancements which can greatly increase prison time if you're convicted. These may include enhancements for gun possession during the commission of a crime, enhancements for crimes involving minors, gang crime enhancements, and more. In addition, many felonies fall under California's “Three Strike” rule, which also multiplies prison time for repeat offenses. Studies show these enhancements tend to work unfairly against people in underserved, low-income, and minority communities.
Bottom line: if you've been accused of a serious or violent felony, chances are you're facing one or more enhancements—meaning you could spend a lot more time in prison if convicted. When the stakes are this high, there's no room for mistakes on either side. You need an attorney who knows what he's doing.
