Hiring a Santa Ana Criminal Lawyer

Get the Aggressive Defense You Need From Our Firm!

Why do you need to hire a criminal lawyer? It depends upon how much you want to fight back and try to avoid conviction. Even being completely innocent is not enough to ensure that you will walk away. There are probably hundreds of people serving time throughout the country that did not commit the crime. You should have high quality, aggressive legal representation for any court appearance, bail hearing, pre-trial hearing or other appearance. Some people just give up and plead guilty, others accept a plea bargain or get a public defender that may or may not be motivated or even talented. You get what you pay for. Getting legal representation from a Santa Ana criminal lawyer from Thomas Tears, Attorney at Law may make all the difference in your case.

39 Years of Experience in Criminal Court

Your case may have serious flaws. Perhaps your charges could be dismissed. If you don’t have a highly qualified, insightful and creative defense attorney on your side, you could be convicted when you could have walked away completely free. There are many cases that look impossible at first glance. Only an in-depth review of all the evidence can identify the holes and flaws in the case that could be exploited for your defense. Whether you need felony or misdemeanor defense, we know the criminal justice system and how to best take action.

Working with a Public Defender could be a serious error. How it works is that a Public Defender is paid a flat rate for each case. They could urge you to take a plea bargain to bring the case to a close – even if you are not guilty of the crime. They may be a new lawyer, or not be particularly talented in court. Don’t take chances when you face serious criminal charges. You may not even qualify for a Public Defender. When you work with us, you will be working with a legal professional who is dedicated to your case, and your case alone.

Client Reviews

Mr. Tears is a true Gentleman with vast knowledge of criminals law and great understanding the court system. I have used Mr. Tears services several times first time in 1998 and most recently in 2020 and referred his services to several of my friends and everyone agrees he treated his clients with dignity and respect.

Fred Highland

There are hundreds of DUI lawyers out there, and I’m sure there’s are a few that know how to win, but I don’t think all attorneys have the legal experience and relentless compassion, followed up by the genuine care that Attorney Tom Tears has proven to me as a client.

Joel Villarreal

I never felt like he wasn’t completely devoted to my case and my well being. He truly cares about his clients and his willingness to work with me in regards to paying out the fees was amazing. I do not believe I could have found another like him. My gratitude is immeasurable.
