The San Fernando Valley has a number of people that have been accused of sex crimes every single month. It's a very serious issue when the government comes after you and they're going to charge you with a sex crime.
So, obviously, you want to get the best criminal defense attorney that you can, someone who's done a lot of sex crimes.
I've done hundreds of them in almost over a 30-year career in criminal defense.
Well Respected by Local Judges and Prosecutors
I'm very well known and respected in the San Fernando Valley by judges and prosecutors because I'm in the San Fernando Valley courts all the time fighting for my clients, and obviously, trying to get the best results.
So, if you or a loved one is charged with a sex crime, your case is in one of the Valley courts, San Fernando, Van Nuys or any of the other Valley courts, pick up the phone.
Ask for a meeting with Ron Hedding. I will put my experience to work for you and make sure that you are properly defended by one of the best in the business.
Crucial Factors to Consider
I think what makes an attorney the best is a number of things. First, experience. You've got to have a lot of:
- experience dealing with the prosecutors,
- the particular courthouse,
- also the type of charge that you're charged with, and
- whether or not you really feel comfortable with the attorney.
That's why I insist on meeting with my clients who are charged with sex crimes. We can really get a good feel for whether or not we are a good match for each other. I typically get along very well with clients and the court.
I think that's important because if you get along with your attorney and you feel comfortable with them, the judge and prosecutor are probably going to feel the same way.
If there ends up being a jury trial on the case, the jury is going to feel good with your attorney. The last thing you want is a circumstance is where the judge and the prosecutor don't like your attorney because that's going to reflect on you.
Negotiation Skills with Prosecutor
I think the final thing that makes the best sex crime defense attorney is somebody who can tell when to take a case to trial and when to negotiate a case.
If you do have to take the case to trial, you obviously want somebody who is a strong trial attorney because strong trial attorneys reflect across the board.
What I mean by that is, even if you're going to negotiate your sex crime case, you want to make sure your attorney is respected. That the prosecutors realize that there are:
- some weaknesses in their case,
- your attorney can take them to jury and beat them, and
- that's one of the reasons that they lessen charges, don't offer prison.
Those are the types of things they're looking at, are there weaknesses in the case?
Review of Best Case Strategy
There's a host of other things they look at as well, but that pretty much gives you a good outline of what the best sex crime defense attorneys in the Valley should have in order to successfully represent you.
