CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY
IN RIVERSIDE AND SAN BERNARDINO

You Deserve Quality Representation

The repercussions of having a criminal conviction on your record can be life-changing, and not in a good way. It is highly likely that a conviction will have a negative impact on your personal and professional objectives, and it will also affect multiple other aspects of your life.

Some of the challenges you could be facing include:

‣ Serving jail time
‣ Having to pay fines
‣ Employment ineligibility
‣ Losing driving privileges
‣ Your odds of not getting into some colleges or in the military
‣And more!

With all due respect to public defenders, their caseload is too large to provide you or your loved one with the time and attention to detail required to build a strong defense. Quality legal representation requires a passionate, empathetic, and reliable attorney such as Mirta C. Palmer.

Defending Your Legal and Constitutional Rights

Not understanding what your legal and constitutional rights are or how to defend them will reduce the likelihood of an acquittal. If you are pleading guilty or found guilty, improper representation will decrease the likelihood of a more favorable resolution, not to mention the lifelong negative ripple effect.

How Can the Law Office of Mirta C. Palmer Help?

There are multiple ways to approach a criminal matter which vary greatly depending on the type of charge, how solid or weak the evidence against you is, what you are willing to accept or risk, and a variety of other factors.

There are too many strategies to cover here, but some of the most common options include:

Diversion Program: The accused is allowed to participate in treatment or education sessions and, after an agreed-upon period and on the condition that the accused complies with the court’s directives, the guilty plea may be withdrawn and/or the charges will be dismissed. Diversion is available for minor offenses and under certain circumstances.

Negotiated Plea: The accused chooses to plead guilty after the attorney engages in negotiations with the prosecution in order to obtain the best resolution possible for the client. In exchange for the guilty plea, the prosecutor offers a lesser charge or recommends a lighter sentence.

Exculpation, Affirmative Defenses, and Other Defenses: When the attorney is successful in the submission of certain defenses and/or depending on the evidence and the circumstances, the accused may be acquitted, or the potential sentence may be lessened. Some of these defenses are: self-defense, duress, necessity, mistake of fact, consent, entrapment, or defense of dwelling (Note: deadly force may never be used to defend property).

Getting the charges dropped: This ideal resolution can occur when the prosecution’s evidence is insufficient to move forward. One way your attorney may attempt to get the charges dropped due to insufficient evidence is by filing a Motion to Suppress Evidence.
