Manhattan Beach Criminal Lawyers

It is every person’s hope that they will go through their life without any involvement with the criminal justice system. For most people, this will be the case. However, there are others who will see the inside of a courtroom. If you ever find yourself in this unfortunate position, it is important that you have an experienced criminal defense attorney defending you. It is common for people to face criminal charges due to the negligence of others and through no fault of their own. These people are not career criminals. In many cases, they are simply guilty of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. These people do not deserve to have the rest of their lives ruined because of one unfortunate event they were not responsible for. This is where the experience of Farar & Lewis LLP comes into play.

Let’s take a look at some of the many issues that Farar & Lewis LLP can help their clients with:


Southern California is one of the areas of the country where immigration law affects the lives of many people. If you happen to be an undocumented immigrant or related to undocumented immigrants, the fear of deportation is an issue you spend every day thinking about. Immigration issues do not only affect people who are undocumented. Even if you have a green card allowing you legal residence in the United States, the laws of this country will occasionally treat you differently than natural born citizens. Conviction of certain crimes may result in your green card being revoked and your deportation from the country. We are experienced handling cases likes this and we will work tirelessly to ensure than all of our immigrant clients avoid being detained or deported.

Child Pornography

This is a crime that is often misunderstood. When people think of a person possessing child pornography, they think of a lowlife miscreant living in a basement. However, child pornography charges can result from even the most innocent of actions. For example, if an underage person sends a naked photo of himself or herself to another underage person, the sender can be charged with distributing child pornography. This is a reality that many people fail to understand. No two cases involving child pornography are alike. Therefore, if you have been charged with this crime in the Manhattan Beach area, it is critical that you contact the team of Farar & Lewis to examine all of the facts and give you the best possible defense.

Internet Crimes

The category of cyber crime is very large. However, most crimes in this category involve stalking or financial gain. Some of the areas we specialize in include hacking, cyber-stalking and fraud. Since we have experience in criminal prosecution, we will have a unique insight into how the prosecution will prepare their case against you. This will enable us to plan an effective strategy that we can start to implement immediately to defend you.
