Torrance Court Criminal Defense Attorney
Criminal Lawyer in Torrance, California
Although Torrance is a small, tight nit community, there are a number of challenges to people charged with serious crimes. Every day, the Torrance Daily Breeze and even the Long Beach Press Telegram report serious criminal stories that lead to serious jail time for defendants.
Consequences of a Criminal Conviction
To be labeled a "criminal" means that your entire life will be turned upside down. If you are a convicted felon, it will severely damage your ability to get a job, buy a house and more. Felons also loose basic rights, such as the right to vote, the opportunity to take out loans and more. Anyone charged with a felony needs an attorney who will fight hard to protect their freedoms. Other issues, such as getting a job, will have a major impact. When applying for a job, there will be a box to mark off if you are a felon. In addition, a background check may turn up any misdemeanors, especially those that are higher profile such as a DUI. Many police stations post pictures of people who have been arrested for DUI, or post them on a government website. If a company does a simple Google search of a candidate, it will surely turn up such listings.
Other potential legal issues include being labeled a criminal or having a stigma put onto you. A lawyer can help defend you in court by providing the best defense possible for your situation. While some people simply give up hope, it is important to get the kind of legal assistance that will mean the difference between years in prison and having a full life.
