Experienced San Diego Criminal Defense Lawyers
There is no such thing as a “minor” criminal charge. This is particularly true if you are a permanent immigrant, non-immigrant, or an undocumented alien. A criminal charge, whether it a misdemeanor or a felony, can create serious consequences. The stakes can be high because a conviction will often include paying heavy fines, some local jail time or long term imprisonment. If you are not a US citizen, a misdemeanor or felony criminal conviction can lead to deportation and permanent seperation from your family. At The Rodriguez Law Firm, we take every criminal charge seriously and will aggressively fight to protect your immigration status and constitutional rights from being taken away. Attorney John R. Rodriguez believes that everyone accused of a crime has the right to a vigorous and skilled legal defense.

How We Can Help
We understand that you place your trust in us and we accept that responsibility by providing the very best and most aggressive representation possible. It’s also important to understand that no criminal defense lawyer can guarantee that you will win your trial or that the prosecutors will dismiss the case. Making such guarantees is unethical.
Attorney John R. Rodriguez and his team of criminal defense lawyers work hard to even the scales of justice or when even tip them in your favor. The prosecution and their list of police witnesses will never intimidate us or our efforts to negotiate the best outcome possible for your case.
Most cases are negotiated outside the courtroom with both sides finding a compromise that they can live with. An effective plea negotiation with favorable terms for the client can be a challenge and requires the skills and experience of your attorney. The Rodriguez Law Firm has handled thousands of negotiated plea deals where clients are often willing to accept and relieved that their case will resolve without a trial. Occasionally the serious circumstances of the case or the prosecutor’s offer is unreasonable and when that happens we are willing and prepared to take your case to the next level by making sure every fact of the case is investigated. We will examine and find the flaws in the state’s theories and prepare you and your witnesses in preparation for trial.
If you need a criminal defense lawyer you can trust, then call us today for a free consultation.
