Know Your Rights
“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”
Question: What exactly does it mean when an officer says, “You have the right to remain silent?”
Answer: It means it’s worthless to you unless you use it. You have a right, use it—remain silent. I heard a comedian say one time, “I had the right to remain silent, I just didn’t have the ability.” And while you may say it seems funny—and it is funny—it’s not. This is a Constitutional right and it is of value to us only when we use it.

Car accidents can occur in any place and at any time, and they are among the leading causes of preventable injury and death in the nation. With so many cars on the roadways, it is no wonder that car accidents claim thousands of innocent lives each year.
If you have been injured in an automobile accident due to someone else's negligence, you need to speak with our personal injury attorney. Do not waive your right to legal counsel.

When you get behind the wheel of a car, you are required by law to operate your vehicle in a way that reasonably protects the rights, interests, and well-being of other motorists on the road. You expect the same behavior from the motorists with whom you share the public roads. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In countless instances, driver negligence, driver distraction, and driver intoxication have all been leading causes of serious and fatal car accidents in California. Though the causes of accidents can differ, they almost always have the same results: DEVASTATION.
Commonly, car accidents cause catastrophic injuries such as
Amputation and Loss of Limbs
Injuries to Internal Organs
Spinal Cord and Neck Injuries
If someone else's negligence, carelessness, or recklessness has caused injury to you or your loved one, you must speak with our legal professionals immediately. More often than not, you will be forced to work with the opposing party's insurance company. You will need to work with an aggressive attorney who has the experience, knowledge, and skills to face off against major corporate entities.
Premises liability is a legal concept that typically comes into play in personal injury cases where the injury was caused by some type of unsafe or defective condition on someone’s property. Most personal injury cases are based on negligence, and premises liability cases are no exception. In order to win a premises liability case, the injured person must prove that the property owner was negligent with respect to ownership and/or maintenance of the property. In general, negligence means that the property owner failed to use reasonable care in connection with the property.
Because of someone else's negligence, you could lose time off work and incur medical bills, even as you endure pain and suffering. If you or a loved one has been harmed by a careless person or organization's actions, you are urged to contact our office.
From individual property owners to a local government, property owners have a duty of care to people on their property, a duty to maintain the premises in a safe condition. The owner or occupier of the property is responsible for the injuries to which they carelessly contribute.
Homeowners, landlords, store owners, etc. can be faulted for failing to
Fence Off or Seal Off a Swimming Pool
Have a Safe Diving Board and Accurate Water Depth Markings
Keep the Floor Free of Water
Fix Potholes or Dangerous Breaks in the Sidewalk or Driveway
Maintain Adequate Lighting
Provide Obvious Warning Signs or Cones
If you face serious injuries or tragic loss from a premises liability accident, we can go after a negligent premises owner.
A NEW CALIFORNIA LAW THAT HELPS IMMIGRANTS WITH CRIMINAL CONVICTIONS
Do you know an immigrant who has been convicted of a crime? Did they plead guilty without their attorney explaining to them the negative immigration consequences they would have in the future? Have they served their sentence and completed probation? If you answered yes to these three questions, please give our office a call. We are here to help anyone facing the harsh immigration consequences post-conviction, such as possible deportation, exclusion from admission, or denial of naturalization.
On, January 1, 2017, Penal Code section 1473.7 became effective. This new law permits people who are no longer in criminal custody to file a motion to vacate a conviction or sentence. A motion pursuant to Penal Code section 1473.7 can be made on either of the following two grounds: (1) a prejudicial error damaged the defendant’s ability to meaningfully understand, defend against, or knowingly accept the actual or potential adverse immigration consequences of a plea of guilty or nolo contendere, or (2) newly discovered evidence of actual innocence.
This motion may provide immigration relief for defendants that were not able to understand the immigration consequences of a conviction and are now suffering immigration prejudice. If you know anyone who can benefit from this new law, do not hesitate to give us a call. There is hope and we are here to help obtain a clean record!
