Navigating The Complexities Of California State Law

When you violate the law in California, the charges meted out can be severe. If you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges, you could be in line for costly fines and potential jail time. Mr. Goldscheider can help you protect your rights against an array of criminal charges while exploring all viable pathways to a positive outcome.

A Federal Charge Warrants A Serious Defense

When a criminal charge escalates to the federal level, your legal strategy must adapt accordingly. Federal courts are a separate venue from their state counterparts, and U.S. attorneys often have considerable resources for prosecution. When going up against the investigative efforts of the FBI or DEA, it is crucial that your attorney understands what it takes to succeed in federal court.

Some common examples of federal crimes include:

  • Embezzlement
  • Tax fraud
  • Mail fraud
  • Medicare fraud
  • Drug trafficking
  • Firearms charges

The Law Offices of Peter F. Goldscheider will leave no stone unturned in building your defense. Mr. Goldscheider uses expert witnesses to investigate relevant computer files, internet history, bank records and other evidence to determine the strength of the prosecution’s case against you.

Appellate Services For Challenging Your Conviction

If you have been convicted of a state or federal crime, you still have options for obtaining your freedom. Mr. Goldscheider routinely draws upon his considerable experience to find modes of minimizing his clients’ convictions. Some potential legal strategies that could apply to your conviction include:

  • Appeals
  • Writs of habeas corpus
  • Expungements
  • Certificates of rehabilitation
  • Governor’s pardons

The circumstances of every criminal conviction are unique. By employing an exhaustive and thorough approach, Mr. Goldscheider can design a legal strategy that best serves your situation.
