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
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.
