​​California 3 Strikes Law Attorney

​If You Have Strikes on Your Record, ​then ​We Can Help.

In an attempt to reduce violence and get criminals off the street, California residents voted the ​​California 3 Strikes Law into legislation. Under this law, any person convicted of a felony “strike” will be facing an automatic sentence of 25 years to life in prison. A second strike offense will result in an increase in penalties including double the amount of time in prison. If you have been charged with a felony crime, you must contact an experienced Ventura County criminal defense attorney immediately, especially if it’s your second or third felony offense. Your freedom depends on it.

At the Law Offices of Krause & Hirschhorn, P.C., we focus our practice ​on protecting the rights of our clients and preserving their freedom. When a person’s freedom is on the line, it is essential that the attorney representing that person devote him or herself entirely to the case. We understand the important role a defense attorney plays in representing a client facing a first, second and/or third strike, and we fight to the end for each case we take on. The stakes of a conviction under this law can potentially result in a life sentence. It is important to contact an experienced three strikes attorney today.
