Valencia Resource Center
Being arrested for a crime is one of the most serious things that can happen in a person's life. If you or someone you care about is convicted of a crime, jail or prison time, loss of employment, steep fines, and other severe penalties may shatter a promising future or tear a family apart. After an arrest, it's common for an individual to feel scared, overwhelmed, and confused. What you need to remember, however, is that you aren't helpless and you have the right to a fair trial and quality legal representation. As such, you should never admit guilt or discuss your case with anyone other than your attorney.

Familiarity with Valencia Courts
When taking on a criminal case that will occur in the Valencia court system, Daniel E. Kann is confident, informed, and prepared due to his familiarity with local prosecutors, judges, and the overall operation of proceedings. To be successful in defending the rights of an individual accused of a crime, a defense lawyer must be aggressive, but also reasonable and diplomatic when negotiating with prosecutors and judges to have a charge reduced or dismissed. Knowing the details of your situation helps Dan build a strong case by applying the right defense strategies and making sure that your side of the story is heard.
How to Fight the Charges
How a person's life will be negatively affected by a criminal conviction depends on the severity of the crime and whether the charge is a misdemeanor or a felony. Felony crimes that may be reduced to a misdemeanor, depending on the circumstances, are referred to as "wobblers." As a part of handling your case, a skilled defense lawyer will evaluate the evidence and specifics of your arrest to determine whether a felony may be reduced to a misdemeanor. If an individual is convicted of a felony, he or she may face an extensive state prison sentence, lose the right to vote, and lose the right to possess firearms forever. In regards to sex crimes, some will require sex offender registration for life, and others will not.
In building effective cases for his clients, Dan examines the initial packet of evidence provided by the prosecution. If vital evidence is missing that the prosecution and law enforcement possesses and are aware of and did not hand over, Dan will be sure to obtain it and will use this evidence in proving your innocence.
