Do I Need a Defense Attorney?

If you were arrested, you probably have many questions. Some people choose to go through the criminal process alone or with the help of a public defender. In many cases, this is because they think they cannot afford representation. The truth is, public defenders have enormous caseloads.

This leaves them little time to dedicate to your case. Hiring an independent attorney means that you will have a legal advocate exclusively dedicated to your case and fighting for justice on your behalf. Your best chance at getting a successful case outcome is by retaining a criminal defense lawyer, so call one of ours to discuss your case today.

Fighting DUI Charges in Riverside

One of the most common types of cases we handle is drunk driving. If you were arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI), trust our firm to fight for your rights and defend you against penalties such as fines, license suspension and jail.

According to California Vehicle Code § 23536, a first DUI conviction could result in penalties like:

  • 96 hours to 6 months in jail
  • $390 to $1,000 fine
  • Driver's license suspension

The penalties get more severe with each subsequent offense and are particularly harsh for offenses such as DUI accidents (causing injury or death) or DUI while on a suspended license. Not only can our firm represent you at the criminal hearing, but also at the DMV hearing. You only have 10 days from the date of your DUI arrest to request a DMV hearing and contest license suspension.

Want to Clear Your Criminal Record?

You may be eligible for a process known as “expungement.” If you qualify, you could get certain criminal offenses cleared from your record. Call us to learn more about expungement.

Were You Arrested for a Drug Crime?

Hanson, Gorian, Bradford & Hanich also handles a number of cases for individuals accused of drug crimes like possession, manufacturing and sales. The penalties for drug crimes get more severe depending on the schedule of the drug (Schedule I-V with Schedule I being the most severe), the quantity of the drug, any prior drug offenses and the nature of the offense.

In the state of California, there are mandatory minimum sentences for various drug offenses, particularly those involving crack cocaine. Although sentencing requirements for these drug offenses have been amended in recent years, such as the Drug Sentencing Reform Act, many drug punishments do not seem to fit the nature of the crime.

The "war on drugs" has landed thousands of drug offenders in federal prison for lengthy periods – many are serving 25 years to life in prison for non-violent drug crimes. At Hanson, Gorian, Bradford & Hanich, our Riverside criminal defense lawyers can fight for your rights to fair sentencing if you have been accused of a drug offense.

Our Riverside law firm also handles the following types of criminal cases:
