West Covina Criminal Defense Lawyer

Fighting Criminal Charges in West Covina

If you have been charged with a crime, it can feel as if everything is stacked against you. Law enforcement officials may be asking questions that appear to suggest you committed the offense and prosecutors may be standing ready to attempt to prove you're guilty. Relationships with friends, family members, and professional acquaintances may become strained, as some may be quick to make negative judgments based solely on a criminal accusation. Yet, one of the pillars of the criminal justice system is the presumption of innocence, meaning you are considered innocent until or unless the State can prove otherwise beyond a reasonable doubt. 

At The Law Offices of Kirk Tarman & Associates, our defense attorney in West Covina knows how overwhelming it can be when accused of a crime. We also recognize that trying to fight the charge on your own or with the assistance of an inexperienced lawyer can be stressful, as the legal system is a complex maze of laws and rules. Our team is prepared to help you through each stage of your case. Understanding what you are facing and what is at stake, we make sure to explain the entire process clearly, layout possible outcomes, and discuss avenues we can pursue to fight your charge. At our firm, you are more than just a case number, and we do not make judgments based on the crime you have committed. We genuinely care about helping you and get to know you as a person to develop a compelling strategy for your situation.

For dedicated defense from a West Covina criminal lawyer ready to staunchly advocate for you, call us at (909) 658-7341 or contact us online today.

Call on Our West Covina Defense Attorney to Fight Your DUI Charge

If you have been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs or with a BAC of 0.08 or higher, you will go through an administrative and criminal process. Both can have lasting consequences. The administrative process is concerned with whether your driver’s license should be suspended – note that, during this stage, you could lose your driving privileges even though your criminal case has not concluded. The criminal process is concerned with whether you are guilty of DUI, and a conviction can result in fines, jail or prison time, and/or driver’s license suspension.

Thus, seeking a favorable resolution in a DUI case can be overwhelming, as you must fight to protect your future in two separate systems. At The Law Offices of Kirk Tarman & Associates, our West Covina criminal defense lawyer is prepared to represent you at the DMV hearing and throughout your criminal case. We will review everything that happened to develop a defense tailored for you.
