Have you or a loved one been charged with a criminal offense? If you are facing any of the following charges, contact your Glendale criminal defense attorney Jonathan I. Kelman today:

Why do you need a Glendale criminal defense attorney? The criminal process is long and complex and without the advice of an experienced professional, you could find yourself facing jail time, fines or both. For example, did you know following your arrest you must be present at an arraignment. This is the official court hearing where you enter your plea of guilty or not guilty. If you fail to attend, you could be held in contempt of court and face additional jail time. If, however, you have a criminal defense attorney, they can represent you at your arraignment.

Depending on your crime, you may also be facing a bail hearing. This is when the judge will decide how much it will cost you to stay out of jail between the arraignment and the trial – which could take months! This decision is based on a number of factors, including your criminal history, the facts of your case, your ties to Glendale and the severity of the crime. Knowing what the judge is looking for, your criminal defense attorney will be able to make an argument for a reasonable bail amount for you.

During the pretrial process you will have an opportunity to negotiate a plea bargain with the prosecutor. However, in order to ensure you get the best option available – or whether you are better off going to trial – you will need a comprehensive view of the evidence and an in-depth understanding of the law. Not only does a criminal defense attorney have both, they also have working relationships with many of the prosecutors and will know what kind of plea bargain you can reasonably make.

As you can see, even well before your trial, having an experienced California criminal defense attorney like the Law Office of Jonathan I. Kelman on your side is essential.
