California Criminal Defense Attorneys
HOWARD LAW, PC is a California criminal defense law firm serving clients in Southern California and across the United States. Our attorneys have years of experience in California state and federal trials, including high-stakes and high-profile trials. Based in Costa Mesa, we handle all types of criminal charges, from misdemeanors to serious, violent crimes.
As criminal defense lawyers, we understand that being accused of a crime is a life-changing and sometimes frightening experience. Not only are you subject to investigation and interrogation by the police, but other people may start treating you differently. The criminal justice system treats accused people like criminals, regardless of the accusation or how valid it is. And without a private attorney, your defense is in the hands of a public defender who may not have the time and resources to give it enough attention.
That's why our Riverside County defense attorneys stand by our clients all the way through the process, from our first meeting until the day your case is finished. We promise clear communication to all of our clients, and frequent updates about the status of the case. Whenever it's time to make a decision, we will provide expert advice and let clients make the final call. And we handle all parts of cases, counseling our clients whenever necessary about non-criminal consequences such as the loss of a driver's or professional license.
Howard Law represents people accused of all types of crimes in California, including:
- Assault with a Deadly Weapon
- Petty Theft
- Sex Crimes
- Domestic Violence
- Drug Cases
- Medical Marijuana Charges
Time is of the essence in many criminal cases. The earlier our Los Angeles County criminal defense attorneys can take a case, the better we can protect your legal rights and expand your options for resolving the case fairly. That's why we urge you to contact us as soon as you realize you're being charged or investigated. HOWARD LAW offers confidential consultations to all potential clients, so you can talk to us about your rights and your options without any further obligation.
