In many cases, a favorable legal outcome after California felony charges have been made involves a reduction of charges from felony to misdemeanor. This can occur even after a plea of guilty to a felony or after probation is assigned (section 17 California Penal Code).
If you already have a felony or felonies on your California criminal record we can, in many cases, go to court to reduce your felony to a misdemeanor.

We have one objective for all of our clients: to obtain the best resolution of your criminal case possible. We understand the power of a plea bargain in many instances, allowing defendants benefits such as the following:
- Getting out of jail — in many cases, community service, weekend work or rehabilitation programs may take the place of incarceration when a felony charge is reduced to a misdemeanor charge.
- Obtaining a quick resolution of a criminal case — allowing the accused to go on with a normal lifestyle in peace while the misdemeanor case is underway.
- Removing serious offenses from one’s criminal record (and avoiding the build-up of a record that can prove disastrous to one’s future under the “three strikes” law).
- Avoiding publicity and the stigma that often accompanies a felony charge or conviction.
Our goal is vigorously to defend people who have been charged or accused of felonies in California.
