Why hire a criminal defense lawyer in Santa Ana?

After your arrest or charge for a criminal offense in Santa Ana, the police will likely take your fingerprints and photograph you.

At this point, if not before, it is highly advisable to speak to a criminal defense attorney. Trying to navigate the criminal justice system alone and without experience is extremely challenging.

If you’re charged with a crime (especially if it is the first time), you may be confused and anxious. Defending yourself effectively in this state of mind is almost impossible.

Bryan R. Kazarian will start working immediately for your release on your own recognizance or on bail, depending on the nature of your alleged crime. He and his team will also communicate with your loved ones during this difficult time so everyone is on the same page.

At your arraignment, you may need to appear at a bail hearing, where the presence of an experienced lawyer can greatly help secure your case for release – with the least stringent conditions possible.

Bryan R. Kazarian will walk you through the justice process and help you face each step in the legal system with clarity and confidence. He is extremely familiar with the local courts and the procedures involved in your particular case.

This is no time to gamble. You have just one chance to get it right or your future freedoms could be affected.

He and his team will examine all the evidence against you for weaknesses or inconsistencies and ensure that your rights, freedoms, and interests are protected.
