Criminal Defense Attorney Serving El Segundo, CA

Aggressive Defense for DUI, Theft, and All State and Federal Crimes

A person may face criminal charges for any of a number of acts that are illegal according to state and/or federal law. These offenses may range from such serious crimes as kidnapping or murder all the way to the possession of an illegal weapon or DUI (driving under the influence). No matter the nature of the charges that a defendant may face or the specific circumstances surrounding these charges, one thing holds true: the defendant has the right to an attorney. In fact, this is potentially one of the most important constitutional rights when it comes to criminal charges. Without a criminal defense lawyer, a defendant would have no hope of having his or her other constitutional rights protected in the midst of legal proceedings.

An El Segundo criminal defense attorney at our firm, the Law Offices of Decio Rangel Jr., can make an accurate assessment of your case to determine how best to protect your rights and freedom. We know what is at stake for our clients in these matters and will fight tirelessly to help them avoid imprisonment, fines, and a ruined reputation. A criminal conviction may also have a significant impact on one's ability to find a job, pursue certain careers, live in certain areas, qualify for loans, and even own a firearm. In some criminal cases, the defendant will face even worse consequences due to lifetime sex offender registration.

Our law firm can represent clients in all types of criminal cases in the El Segundo area. This includes cases for minors in juvenile court as well as federal cases involving investigations by the FBI, DEA, and other federal agencies. We can assist you if you have been accused of a probation violation or have been arrested for any type of theft crime, violent crime, sex crime, or drug crime.

When to Involve an El Segundo Criminal Defense Lawyer

When it comes to criminal cases, it is best to act as quickly as possible. You will have a limited window of opportunity before things start spiraling out of control, and you are facing formal criminal charges. The earlier your lawyer is able to become involved in your case, the more of an impact he or she will be able to make on its outcome.
