Santa Ana Criminal Defense Attorney

Orange County Criminal Defense Law Firm

Being accused of a crime can turn your life upside down. All crimes carry the threat of serious penalties, including jail or prison and steep fines. Some crimes, such as DUI, also come with immediate penalties that require quick action to prevent or correct. An arrest can be embarrassing and upsetting, and accusations like domestic violence can result in immediate judgment by the community at large. And for many people, the charges or the unscheduled time off work can also cause problems at work, leading to serious financial hardship.

You shouldn't face a situation this serious alone — and you don't have to. Law Offices of Joseph M Tysel represent clients throughout Orange County and Southern California who are charged with crimes. Lead attorney Joseph Tysel has practiced law since 1990 and has successfully defended many people. Our criminal defense law firm handles all types of crimes, from simple marijuana possession to serious charges of domestic battery, drug trafficking and more. We practice in both federal court and California's Superior Courts, in areas including:

Remember, you're not necessarily guilty just because police and prosecutors believe you are. Law enforcement officers can make mistakes and assumptions, violate your civil rights or exaggerate the facts. In order to convict you in a court of law, prosecutors have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you did what you're accused of doing. All of these are potential weaknesses that can get your case dismissed, charges reduced or convince a jury to find you not guilty. Our job as Santa Ana criminal defense lawyers is to investigate the facts and get you the best possible outcome, whether that means dropped charges, a not-guilty verdict or a fair and reasonable plea agreement.

As a small law firm, we believe our size allows us to give clients the personal attention they deserve. Being charged with a crime, or seeing someone you love charged with a crime, can be upsetting and stressful. In our experience, clients want to hear about new developments and changes in their cases as soon as they happen — and they deserve it. That's why we always answer client calls and make sure to get in touch as soon as there's something new to explain or ask. Para servir la comunidad latina, hablamos español e falam português.
