Standing Up For Your Rights

You might have been hanging out with the wrong people at the wrong time. You might have become involved in a misunderstanding that has spiraled out of control. Whatever the situation, if you have been charged with a crime, you could potentially be facing very serious penalties. The state will be devoting substantial resources to obtain a conviction, and you need to make sure you have an aggressive attorney on your side to protect your future.

Edward Y. Lee, attorney at law, has been helping people charged with crimes for over 22 years. Along with the rest of our attorneys, Edward is committed to making sure that you have someone on your side who can explain what is happening to you. We will carefully explain the charges that you are facing, and help you make a decision on what is best for you.

The Costs Of A Conviction May Be More Than Fines And Jail Time

It is important to realize that almost every criminal conviction will have some impact upon your future. You may be unable to get a job in some industries, or you may face challenges when looking for a place to live. In cases involving more serious allegations, a conviction could mean jail or prison time, as well as high fines. You need to take this seriously, and make sure that you have an experienced attorney to present a strong challenge to these charges.

Our lawyers offer criminal defense services to individuals facing a number of different misdemeanor and felony charges, including:

  • Crimes of violence, including murder and assault
  • Crimes against property, including burglary
  • Drug crimes, including manufacturing or distributing controlled substances
  • DUI and other alcohol-related driving offenses
  • Sex crimes, including cases that would require registration as a sex offender in California
  • White collar crimes and other serious criminal allegations

One of the most important issues facing those charged with crimes concerns the immigration consequences that may result if convicted. If you are in the country on a visa or are here illegally, a conviction may lead to deportation proceedings. You need to make sure that your attorney understands how the charges will affect your immigration status. Never make any decisions until you have spoken with a member of our team about your case.

When you work with our firm, you will have a committed advocate on your side. Edward and our entire legal team will be aggressive when protecting your rights, and we will make sure that we pursue an outcome that aligns with your goals. We are going to be the fighters that you need to stand up to prosecutors.
