What cases can a criminal defense attorney help with?

No criminal charges are too simple or complex for our firm, which is why have represented clients who were charged with sex crimes, drug crimes, and theft crimes. Our firm can represent clients who are facing a variety of criminal charges, including DUI and violent crimes. Whether you are found to be driving with a suspended license or violating your restraining order, our experienced lawyers can help you protect your rights. If your child has been accused of a juvenile crime, the Law Office of Peacock & Le Beau can help them protect their future.


What are the penalties for a juvenile offense?

Youth who are convicted of juvenile crime can face many serious penalties, including:

  • Home confinement
  • Juvenile hall
  • Probation
  • Adult jail
  • Fines
  • Electronic monitoring

Many of these penalties can appear on your child's permanent record and can be detrimental to their future.


What do I do if I was already convicted?

If you were convicted of a crime but wish to clear your record, our firm can also assist with expungements. Regardless of whether you were convicted of assault or any other type of crime, our criminal attorney may be able to clear your record and give you a fresh start in life.


What should I do or not do if I have been arrested?

The one thing you must not do is to speak about the case with anyone but your attorney, as whatever you say to a police officer or investigator can be used as evidence against you. Your first step should be to schedule a free case evaluation with our legal team. We can help people who have been charged with any type of crime and our criminal lawyers are prepared to take immediate action on your case.


What approach does the firm take to representation?

Although one criminal attorney in Long Beach will take primary responsibility for your case if you retain our services, we will collaborate and discuss strategies to prepare your case for a full jury trial. The Law Office of Peacock & Le Beau is recognized for our talented defense strategies.

We pool all of our knowledge and resources to develop the most effective plan of action for fighting for our clients. By preparing your case for trial, we send a message to the prosecutor that we are determined to achieve the best possible result and are willing to go to battle.

The fact that we are prepared means that our team receives offers that allow our clients to avoid the risks and expense of going to trial in most cases. We investigate cases and find evidence that helps to undermine the prosecutor's confidence in the case so that he or she will offer the best possible disposition to our clients.
