Spencer Seyb

California Criminal Lawyer Group

When you are under arrest, investigation, or facing charges for a criminal offense, it means you are steps away from losing your freedom for a lengthy period, sometimes completely, and are about to face other life-altering consequences. Life as you know it may suddenly change. At this point, you must be careful and take the necessary measures to defend your constitutional rights, future, and freedom.

A criminal conviction could see you serve time in prison and pay hefty fines. It could also make you lose your job, custody of your child, child visitation rights, friends due to stigma, and have other damaging impacts on your future. When all these are at stake, your top priority ought to be seeking a lawyer’s help.

California Criminal Lawyer Group is a criminal law firm whose specialty is providing criminal defense to clients facing criminal charges in Anaheim, CA, and other neighboring towns and counties. We offer top-tier legal advice and representation as far as criminal defense is concerned. We’re devoted to ensuring justice prevails for each of the clients we represent. Our lawyers will do all in their power to defend your legal rights and protect your future.

We Believe in Positive Results

At California Criminal Lawyer Group, we believe any case can be won, and everyone is worth keeping their freedom irrespective of how difficult and hopeless the situation might seem. If we can’t achieve your acquittal, we will fight to have the judge lower your charges. This way, you will face lighter consequences that will see you regain your freedom after only a brief period.

At times you may never lose your freedom, to begin with, since we may be able to negotiate a probation sentence instead of a prison or jail term. We boast a long-standing reputation in Anaheim and beyond for providing aggressive criminal defense and thriving where other firms fail or merely refuse to take on the case. We handle even the most intricate of cases. We understand California criminal law and have the determination and experience it takes to win cases.

Contact us any time as we are available 24 hours of the day, seven days of the week, and 365 days of the year. We will start working on your case right from the time you reach out to us. We will do all that’s in our power to ensure you have the peace of mind you deserve during this difficult time. We will address all your concerns, keep you informed of your legal rights, and start developing a winning defense for your case.

Our Many Years of Combined Experience

For several years now, we have successfully defended our clients throughout Anaheim and beyond in criminal cases, from federal to state, felonies to misdemeanors. Additionally, we have military defense lawyers who have successfully defended military members in criminal cases and are therefore conversant with what’s involved in winning those kinds of cases.

Our lawyers are aggressive, intelligent, and caring advocates for their clients. Most of them have been recognized as top attorneys by many legal associations and organizations. We are extensively experienced and knowledgeable about the law across various criminal practice areas, which has given us a rare perspective into the intricacy of cases and how we can best resolve them for our clients. 

Our attorneys are also very conversant with international cultures and have successfully represented so many diverse clients. As we mentioned earlier, our lawyers have extensive knowledge and experience in all criminal law practice areas, which happen to cross over in most cases. We have represented and counseled hundreds of clients in several different matters. We have successfully handled misdemeanors, felonies, infractions, and cases involving military defendants, both within the federal jurisdiction.

We boast highly respected counselors and litigators with several years of combined experience as practicing attorneys. This experience enables us to handle virtually any issue. Judges, prosecutors, and other lawyers know and respect us.

Why We Stand Out

We exist with the primary objective of serving our clients and the community in general by providing top-notch, accessible criminal defense services. This why you should hire us:

We have vast resources and several years of combined experience. We’ve represented hundreds of clients in Anaheim and beyond and have a long-standing success history. We’ve emerged with many full acquittals in jury and bench trials and won many pretrial motions. We are also expert negotiators who have managed to obtain the most favorable non-trial resolutions, including charge dismissals, diversion programs, and plea deals.

When your legal rights and freedom are under threat due to a criminal charge, we know how to fight for you and eliminate that threat. There is a reason our clients recognize and trust us – we deliver exceptional client satisfaction. We have a long track record of handling cases other firms turn down and winning where others couldn’t. While other attorneys will work to evade contested trials or hearings, our lawyers don’t shy away from courtroom battles. We’re here to obtain the best possible results for your case and not be at the prosecutor’s mercy. Judges, prosecutors, and other attorneys know that we won’t back down until we obtain the most favorable outcome for a case.

Even though we deal with federal and state law, the county, municipality, or court where your case is heard may have different ways of handling things. We are familiar with local court processes and how they do things because of our incomparable criminal defense experience. We also have created lasting relationships with judges, prosecutors, courthouse personnel, and local law enforcement officers. We know how the prosecution thinks, what to anticipate, and how to counter the tactics they use in proving your case. And since we have successfully been doing this, no detail will catch us by surprise in the courtroom.

Legal cases are time-sensitive. Therefore, when you reach out with a case, we will start working on it right away. Unlike other firms that just sit and do nothing until you are arraigned in court, we always start our case preparations early enough. We do not employ the wait-and-see approach.

Without wasting time, we’ll start gathering evidence and finding potential witnesses to testify in your favor.  We will also establish possible ways of challenging the prosecution team’s facts and proof and request to access the police report. We don’t wait until the prosecution brings formal charges against you. We know when the possibility to file formal charges is high, and we will start working before it happens, so we are adequately prepared.

When you hire one of our lawyers, you’re not just another case. Thus, instead of dragging your case with minimal client-attorney contact, we’ll provide you with tenacious and personal representation. We will pay attention to your account of events and address any concerns you have. We will work with you towards the best solution for your case. Additionally, as we mentioned, we are available 24/7/365 to answer your calls. Therefore, you can always reach us if any issue arises outside of the usual business hours.

You will have the direct cell phone and office telephone numbers of the lawyer assigned to your case so that you can reach them at any time. We will guide you through the tough times and treat you compassionately and with respect as you deserve. You will be informed on how your case is progressing and what to anticipate next. Since you are our number one priority, we put communication at the center of our services.

We have a reputation for meeting our client’s needs from the beginning and establishing strong working relationships. We understand there are several great ways of handling a criminal case. However, we concentrate on providing representation tailored to a client’s personalized needs while remaining devoted to seeking exceptional results. We hold our dedication to the highest legal standards. From the moment we take on your case, we devote ourselves to handling it with utmost professionalism. We’ll negotiate courteously and faithfully, without ever backing down from your interests. We will personally take on your case and not pass it off to an unknown lawyer or paralegal.

What happens when you are arrested outside of the regular working hours, on the weekend, or during holidays? Tragedy can strike at any time, and the police don’t make arrests depending on personal schedules. Therefore, when you find yourself under arrest, you deserve immediate legal assistance regardless of the time. That’s why we are available 24/7/365 to help you. Additionally, you’ll always have the contact information of the lawyer handling your case, which is a guarantee that you’ll have someone available to respond to your calls and address any of your emergencies.

Immediately you’re arrested, the police start keeping tabs on what you say or do. This information is then presented to the prosecution’s office and used as proof to support your conviction. Additionally, California criminal cases are time-sensitive. The period between being arrested and hiring an attorney can significantly affect how your case turns out. The faster you retain a defense lawyer after being arrested, the better for you. Waiting too long lessens the timeframe we’ll have to probe every detail of your case. And the more time elapses without a lawyer by your side, the more likely it is that valuable proof may be lost and critical eyewitnesses become unavailable.

We understand that an arrest can be emotionally draining, stressful, and confusing. That is why we strive to accommodate clients at all times, no just when it’s convenient. We are always available to offer complimentary case evaluation, irrespective of the time. Always feel free to text or call us.

Building a strong legal defense starts with having all the facts of the case at the fingertips. We work hand in hand with licensed private investigators to gather all the proof we need. Unlike other firms, we search for details ourselves and do not solely depend on police reports. It is common to have eyewitnesses be intimidated or persuaded by the police into not testifying or providing false testimony. We can prevent this from happening by obtaining recorded statements or physical evidence in the early investigation stages.

The Criminal Court Process

Being accused criminally can be frightening and overwhelming. You may feel like you are in a hopeless situation, not to mention the criminal defense process isn’t a walk in the park — it can be intricate and challenging to navigate by yourself. If you do not have adequate legal knowledge and expertise, you won’t know what to anticipate. The only way to increase your odds of obtaining the best possible outcome is by retaining a skilled attorney. Here is a summary of the process through which California criminal cases pass.

The Arraignment

Usually, you have to be arraigned within 72 hours of your arrest. Arraignment is the initial court date where the judge formally reads the charges against you. You will also be given conditions to follow as your case proceeds. After the judge reads the charges, he/she will ask you how you plead— guilty, not guilty, or no contest. Unless your lawyer and the prosecutor have already struck a plea deal, you’ll usually plead not guilty at this point.

At this stage, the judge also decides whether to set bail or release you on your own recognizance. The judge considers various factors when determining whether to set bail, including how severe your charges are, your criminal history, and whether you are a flight risk or pose a danger to the community. In some cases, bail isn’t allowed. But if the judge decides to set bail, you have the right to a bail review hearing within a few days after the arraignment.

The discovery phase starts after the arraignment. It involves exchanging information by the defense counsel and the prosecution, including police reports, medical reports, photos, video or audio, diagrams, witness statements, probation reports, and viewing physical proof.

The Arrest

A criminal case usually kicks off with an arrest. Police officers are supposed to arrest you only if they have probable cause that you have committed a crime. After you have been arrested, booking takes place. After which, the arresting officer will submit the police report and necessary proof to the prosecution’s office.  The prosecutor then assesses the report plus the evidence and determines whether he/she should file formal charges or not, and if so, what kind of charges. The prosecution then files a criminal complaint. After which, you are charged, and an arraignment date is scheduled.

The Jury Trial

Most cases don’t go to trial. An experienced lawyer may be able to ensure that your case doesn’t reach this stage. Even if it does, you can still beat the charges. At this point, your lawyer presents proof to counter the prosecution’s case and argues legal defenses on your behalf. He/she can also subpoena experts and witnesses to testify in your favor.

Usually, the defense lawyer and prosecution contest for the jury’s support and will make appeals to the judge as well. After all the arguments have been made, the jury gives a ruling on your case. If you are not content with the judge’s decision, your lawyer can help appeal to the California appellate court.

The Preliminary Hearing

Usually, preliminary hearings are conducted in felony cases. They are meant to review probable cause further. However, there is a similar pretrial hearing that happens with misdemeanor cases. These hearings are the same. The only difference is that in felony cases, things are generally done on a large scale.

At this stage, the judge decides whether the proof provided is sufficient to sustain the charges filed. If there’s enough evidence, the judge refers the case to trial. Readjustments of bail or additional charges may be made at this point. However, the case doesn’t have to go to trial. The prosecution and defense attorney may reach a plea deal. Or if there’s no sufficient proof, the case can be dismissed.

You will also be given conditions to follow as your case proceeds. After the judge reads the charges, he/she will ask you how you plead— guilty, not guilty, or no contest.
