San Jose Three Strikes Defense Lawyer

Saratoga Three Strike Felony Defense Lawyer

Santa Clara County Third Felony Defense Attorney

California's three-strikes law is intended to protect citizens from repeat violent offenders. As implemented, however, the three-strikes law has, in many cases, resulted in unreasonably harsh sentences that destroy lives. Although Proposition 36 has altered the law to require that the third strike be serious or violent, the consequences are the same: a lifetime in state prison. The Strikes Law also reduces prison credits for good behavior.

If you are facing a "three-strikes violation" or already have strikes on your criminal record, it is very important to enlist the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer. Attorney Erik Johnson is well-versed in California's three-strikes law and can help you navigate this treacherous legal terrain. He will aggressively evaluate all the evidence, research the validity of the "prior strikes," prepare a Romero Motion asking the court to "strike" or cancel a prior strike or put up a defense at trial.
