  • Serious and violent offenses: Anyone accused of committing a “serious” or “violent” felony, or who may have a “serious” or “violent” felony prior conviction, must have the most aggressive criminal defense representation possible, since these crimes may constitute “strikes” under the 3-Strikes law in California.
