The Law Firm of Farar & Lewis LLP’s criminal defense practice in Malibu specialty areas include, drug possessions, internet crimes, misdemeanors, mortgage fraud, paraphernalia, petit larceny, sex crimes, sexual assault, underage DWI, underage drug crimes, federal crimes, counterfeit substances, child pornography, burglary and robbery, as well as assault and battery. The seriousness of drug charges is dependent on the amount, intent and the type of illegal drug that was confiscated. Counterfeit substances can bring on the most severe disciplinary actions. Underage drug crimes can be treated less severely when compared to an adult that is caught in the same act. However, if there is a repeated offense, judges may decide to enforce a harsher penalty. The same rules apply when it comes to an underage DWI charge. In order to assist in the prevention of future civil trials, it is imperative that internet cases be defended. The law firm’s experience in internet crime is based on hacking, cyber-stalking and fraud. Defendants of misdemeanor crimes have many rights, but those rights can only be enforced with the right council that can achieve the maximum benefits under the law. Mortgage fraud is a serious crime and defendants that want to move forward in their future must provide full disclosure to their attorneys in order to allow the team to determine what facts need to be disclosed. As with all cases, you never want your lawyer to be caught off guard. To experience success, it is always better to be completely honest and let the confidentiality standards prevail. In cases involving paraphernalia or petit larceny, the prosecution needs a lot of evidence in order to succeed with their case. Our law firm can put forth a strategic plan to help determine your freedom. Sexual assault, sexual crimes and child pornography charges can carry lofty penalties. Thus, it is imperative that you prove your innocence or lessen your charge. Federal crimes and federal offenses can have severe penalties.
