Experienced Sex Crime Defense Attorneys in Bellflower
Few allegations are as serious as alleged sex crimes. If convicted, not only could you face decades in prison depending on the crime, but you may also have to register as a sex offender for the rest of your life. That makes it hard to find a place to live, get a job, and otherwise live a normal life. And beyond the legal consequences, the social stigma of being a suspected or convicted sex offender can damage your standing in the community and among your own family and friends.
At The Law Office of Stein & Markus, we genuinely believe in the idea of “innocent until proven guilty,” which is something far too many people forget when it comes to sex crimes. At times, clients feel as though our Bellflower-based attorneys are the only ones on their side. And, sometimes, they are right. These are high stakes, high profile cases, and the media is often involved, leading the public to form conclusions before a trial even begins.
Complete Sex Crime Defense Includes Out-of-Court Strategies
As a firm founded by one attorney with decades of criminal defense experience and another with decades of prosecutorial experience, The Law Office of Stein & Markus knows how to handle sex crime cases from all angles. One of those angles is usually media attention.
We take any steps possible to ensure that our clients’ cases are not tried in the media. We certainly cannot control this aspect of a case, but we do work diligently to remind the public whenever necessary that cases are decided by judges and juries, not reporters. We will formulate a media strategy that we believe will be effective in your unique situation and do our best to protect your good name throughout the duration of the proceedings.
