Fighting Criminal Charges

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, it is essential that you hire an experienced Laguna Hills criminal defense attorney to protect your rights. An aggressive defense lawyer can also provide the vigorous representation you will need when fighting the prosecution’s case. The penalties for a criminal conviction can be severe, including jail time, fines, asset seizure, driver’s license suspension and mandatory psychological counseling. You can expect harsh sentencing if you have a prior criminal record, used a deadly weapon, or injured someone when the crime was committed.

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.
