The criminal defense attorneys at George H. Ramos, Jr., & Associates represents individuals accused of all criminal charges in San Diego, California. We also represent individuals throughout the Southern California area, including but not limited to Los Angeles, Riverside, & Orange County.
OUR LAW FIRM OFFERS REPRESENTATION FOR THE FOLLOWING CRIMINAL CHARGES:
DUI and DWI
From the moment we open our eyes in the morning, life presents us with choices, and we make thousands of decisions each and every day. Unfortunately, it only takes one decision, just a single, momentary lapse in judgment, to turn your world upside down. Driving under the influence (DUI) accounts for well-over one hundred thousand arrests in California every year, and a DUI conviction carries serious penalties.
Domestic violence can occur between spouses, partners, former partners or spouses, children, individuals involved in a dating relationship, or the elderly. If you have been accused of domestic violence, you need to contact a criminal defense attorney immediately, as the punishment is severe – jail, fines, and mandatory counseling for 52 weeks. As a former domestic violence prosecutor for five years, we can help.
We defend people accused of all drug charges, including offenses relating to drug possession, manufacturing, cultivation, and trafficking of cocaine, crack cocaine, marijuana, methamphetamine, prescription drugs, heroin, ecstasy, or other controlled substances, and being under the influence. In lieu of jail, our San Diego criminal attorney can often times negotiate a court dismissal after counseling.
Our law firm represents individuals facing theft and fraud charges including petty theft, shoplifting, burglary, fraud, larceny, embezzlement, counterfeiting, receipt of stolen property, trafficking stolen property, extortion, and bribery. Though you may have been arrested on felony charges, our law firm can often times get these reduced to a misdemeanor.
We handle criminal charges relating to sex crimes, including aggravated sexual assault, date rape, rape, indecent exposure, pandering, prostitution, sexual abuse, sexual battery, statutory rape, and unlawful possession of pornography.
We represent juveniles on all state criminal charges against a minor, including theft, sex crimes, DUI/DWI, drug offenses, fraud, domestic violence, shoplifting, robbery, assault, and weapons charges.
Juvenile Dependency / Child Protective Services
Allegations of child abuse, mistreatment, and neglect are often times blindsiding as the idea of being the target of such accusations is a thought that never crosses most parents’ minds. If CPS has contacted you we can help you figure out what steps to take to get your children back in your care.
If you are seeking an expungement of a conviction from your criminal record, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney to assist you with this process. We can petition the court for such expungement, provided all conditions of probation have been satisfied, even if you are still on probation.
Unfortunately, many relationships end in the most explosive manner. Where violence or threats of violence exist, the Court has the power to grant Restraining Orders to assist individuals in protecting themselves.
California DMV Hearings
DMV administrative hearings are very technical, and you have slim chances of winning without legal help. The Department of Motor Vehicles does not care if you need to drive to get to work or to school – but George H. Ramos, Jr. does.
Child Abuse Defense
In California, child abuse is defined as emotionally, physically, or sexually abusing or neglecting a minor by a parent or guardian. Further defined, any mental abuse or anguish imposed on a child, cruelty, or child exploitation is alco charged as criminal child abuse.
White Collar Crimes
Charged with a White Collar Crime? Though it can be an overwhelming and frightening experience, it IS possible to successfully navigate the legal waters with the help of the right attorney. The fact is, together we can avoid or mitigate a potentially dire and life-altering punishment that can result from such a charge.
Prop 47 Resentencing
Crime classifications dictate the severity of a conviction’s impact on your rights, freedom, and future. A felony conviction results in not only longer periods of incarceration but also restricted access to jobs, housing, voting, benefits, and other opportunities.
