Felonies

Trial of the Lewis deer raidersMost all felony convictions carry serious consequences. Prison sentences are lengthy, ranging from just over a year in prison to life sentences without the possibility of parole. You will likely lose your job and possibly your family. You will have a permanent criminal record making it difficult for you to find a job if and when you are ever released. Even finding housing or obtaining a bank loan for a car is difficult when you have a felony criminal record.

If you have a professional license, whether for selling real estate, insurance or securities, or for the practice of law or medicine, you will lose it and likely never get it back. With so much at stake, you owe it to yourself to be represented by a competent and experienced attorney.

At my Law Office of Stanley R. Switzer, I am a Certified Specialist, Criminal Law, The State Bar Of California Board of Legal Specialization. I have been defending clients on felony charges for more than 25 years. I defend all felony charges, including, but not limited to:

  • Assault.
  • Battery.
  • Drug charges.
  • Domestic violence.
  • DUIs, whether charged as a misdemeanor or felony.
  • Theft offenses.
  • Sex crimes.
  • Murder.
  • Three strikes law.

I will thoroughly review all the facts of your case and obtain all police and investigative reports. We will decide together how to proceed. If going to trial is the best choice, I will zealously stand by your side and vigorously challenge the prosecution’s evidence as we work for an acquittal. I am also prepared to negotiate with the prosecutor for a reduction in charges and penalties if that is in your best interest.
