Long Beach Gang Crimes Defense Lawyer

Law enforcement agencies in the Greater Long Beach area are heavily focused on reducing the prevalence of gangs and gang-related crimes. A person accused of a gang-related crime will face harsher penalties and may be denied any leniency than one accused of a similar crime without the gang connections.

A critical component of a skilled defense is the protection of the rights of the accused. We at West Coast Defense have years of legal experience in analyzing gang violence cases and determining how to build a case that protects those accused. Factual innocence can be proven that will result in an acquittal in many cases.

Harsh penalties for gang violence makes it all the more important that you contact a lawyer who has experience with gang-related crimes and can come to your defense swiftly. There may be compelling evidence against you or you may be completely innocent. No matter what the existing circumstance, a skilled gang crime defense attorney can mitigate the consequences and explore the options in building an effective defense.

Protecting Yourself Against a Label You Wear Forever

Gang crimes are essentially the same as other types of crimes, but with that added component of gang involvement. We could be talking about robbery, burglary, or drug crimes. We could be talking about weapons charges, assault, or juvenile crimes. No matter the type of crime, the penalties tend to be harsher when there is gang involvement. Depending on the offense, you could be facing lifelong sex offender registration, heavy fines, life in prison, or even the death penalty. The label of "gang member" can follow you for the rest of your life and that alone will close many doors and end many opportunities that would be better if they were open to you.

If constitutional rights have been violated, key evidence can be excluded. Law enforcement personnel use threats and coercion to instill a sense of hopelessness but these tactics will not guide our efforts.
