Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney
Decades of Defense Experience and Personal Service
Criminal charges can turn a person's life upside down, especially if they are convicted. Penalties for more serious offenses can include thousands of dollars in fines and months, years or decades in jail or prison. Many people who are charged with committing a crime are indeed guilty and deserve to be sentenced; however, thousands of individuals are falsely accused each year and deserve an aggressive criminal defense lawyer on their side.
The Orange County justice system proudly operates under the assumption that an individual is innocent until proven guilty; but no system is perfect. If you have been arrested for a crime, there is always a possibility that you will be wrongfully convicted, or that your sentence will be harsher than your offense deserves. Don't take chances if you've been charged - contact an experienced Orange County criminal defense lawyer right away!

Defending Against DUI Charges
California has the highest number of licensed drivers out of all 50 states, and California Highway Patrol officers are on a constant lookout for offenders. Wrongful arrests are not uncommon, especially for driving under the influence (DUI). The Orange County criminal attorneys at the firm have handled countless DUI defense cases and have gained extensive skill and knowledge in the area. In fact, Mr. Barney B. Gibbs regularly teaches other lawyers how to handle DUI trial cases. If you need to fight a DUI, this firm has what it takes.
Arrested for a drug or theft crime?
Maybe you've been arrested for a drug crime, such as
possession or drug trafficking. With the help of this firm, your charges could be reduced to a misdemeanor or dropped altogether. There are many alternative sentencing options that this firm is also familiar with. California has something called a Deferred Entry of Judgment (DEJ) per California Penal Code § 1000. For certain qualifying individuals, drug charges can be dropped upon successful completion of a drug counseling program.
The Law Office of Barney B. Gibbs could also defend you from charges of theft crimes such as
burglary and robbery, or protect your child from the consequences of a
juvenile crime conviction. Depending upon the amount of the items stolen, you may be facing a felony charge for grand theft (theft of items over $900). Any charge is serious, but when it has the potential to be charged as a felony, you need extremely strong defense on your side. This firm also handles cases involving
sex crimes and
domestic violence, which are often a result of accusations made out of fear, confusion or anger.
Even after you've already been convicted of a crime, you may still need a skilled defense lawyer. This firm can present a strong argument in your defense if you've been accused of probation violation. You could be sent to jail or prison to serve the remainder of your original sentence - without chance of parole - so don't hesitate to call today. You may also be able to erase your criminal record through
expungement; however, you must meet certain criteria and follow a detailed process, so contact The Law Office of Barney B. Gibbs today for a free consultation.
