Bakersfield Criminal Defense Attorney
Welcome to Campbell Whitten!
Are you searching for the right Bakersfield criminal defense lawyer to handle your case? You need an attorney who is not only experienced but who also provides the level of attention and determination that your case deserves. Many law firms encourage you to focus on their experience and their results until you sign a retainer, after which you are handed off to a paralegal or associate and hardly ever meet with the attorney assigned to your case. No one should ever be treated in this way when they are facing charges and going through one of the most difficult times in their life.
Campbell Whitten does not treat clients as case numbers. Our attorney team can meet with you personally and will treat you as a person instead of the next in a line of cases. We never settle for less than the best and strive to provide the highest quality service and representation to each and every client. You will never feel lost or ignored when you are represented by a lawyer from our firm.
Bakersfield's Only Firm Dedicated Exclusively to Criminal Defense
In addition to our outstanding customer service, Campbell Whitten is also the only law firm in Bakersfield that is dedicated exclusively to criminal defense. While other firms practice criminal defense as well as other areas of law, we focus our attention on defense alone. When you hire us to fight for you, our attention will not be split across different cases in different legal areas. Our trial lawyers work as a team to create unique strategies and build the strongest possible defense for each and every case.
Criminal Defense Cases We Handle
Our firm is capable of handling all types of criminal defense cases, from misdemeanors to serious felonies. Have you been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI)? A drunk driving conviction can result in a fine of up to $1,000 and time in jail or prison, as well as a suspended driver's license. Our attorneys can represent you in Department of Motor Vehicles hearings as well as court hearings, fighting on your behalf against both license suspension and a criminal record.
Have you been charged with a drug crime such as possession, distribution, manufacturing, or trafficking? Conviction for other offenses involving more dangerous substances such as cocaine and heroin can land you in state prison. Our attorneys can provide aggressive defense against other charges, as well. We can fight accusations of domestic violence; prevent you from facing severe penalties for weapon crimes; and fight to defend your reputation and your future from conviction and penalties of white collar crimes.
We also handle more unique cases, such as three-strikes cases and expungement. California is a "three strikes" state, which means that a third felony conviction could land you in prison for 25 years to life if your third felony conviction is for a serious or violent offense. Our firm also helps people determine whether or not a past conviction can be erased through expungement and helps them prepare for and file the petition. With our help, you could avoid an unjust life sentence or erase your criminal record.
