Three Strikes

California Three Strikes Law

Defense From a Criminal Lawyer in Santa Ana

The “three strikes” law in California is extremely harsh and exceptionally dangerous to those facing charges. If you have prior convictions, it is very important to know what you are facing if you have any “strikes” on your record. California passed the “three strikes” law in 1994, which stipulates that a second criminal felony offense can double your time in a state prison. A third criminal conviction of a certain severity and type could easily result in 25 years to life.

If you have been convicted of two serious felonies and you are facing charges on a third, you need to speak with a qualified and experienced Santa Ana criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.

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.
