San Diego Criminal Defense Lawyer

Being accused of a crime is never easy. In fact, it could be the hardest situation you’ll ever face. Law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and the general public may try to get under your skin and see if they can make you cave. The pressure of an accusation is enough to make anyone feel out of sorts, which is why contacting a licensed and experienced criminal defense attorney quickly is one of the best moves you can make.

You will need a lawyer if you are charged with a crime. You may need a lawyer if you are being investigated for a crime. Although the court system operates under the supposition that every individual is innocent until proven guilty, failing to have a dedicated criminal defense attorney at your side could reduce your chances of successfully fighting the charges – whether you are guilty or not.

flexible legal services when you need them

Criminal cases are complex at both the state and federal level. Without an attorney who is licensed to practice at both levels, you may find yourself in a legal quagmire. If your case falls under federal jurisdiction, make sure you consider an attorney’s qualifications before settling on a candidate.

After you have been charged with a crime, you may be awaiting your hearing behind bars. Fast access to a qualified attorney can make a difference in how long you spend locked up before your hearing and how the rest of your case is handled. Attorney Gedulin will visit you in jail or prison if necessary. Our firm’s first priority is to make sure you understand what has happened and the next steps in your case so you can make an informed decision from the beginning.

Contact us for help if you are being investigated for a crime in California and/or at the federal level, and we can start working on your case well before charges are ever filed. Even without a formal charge, the information you provide to investigators may be used in your case.

We can speak on your behalf and help you understand what investigators are looking for. Understanding your rights during this crucial time can make a significant change in how your case is handled by the prosecution.
