The Defense You Need

Types of Cases We Handle

The California Penal, Vehicle, and Health and Safety Codes list a wide range of conduct considered criminal. A violation of any statutes in these codes can lead to criminal charges and a complex legal case. Regardless of the offense you have been accused of, you must retain the services of an OC defense attorney experienced in handling matters similar to yours. Having a knowledgeable and competent criminal lawyer on your side could substantially impact the outcome of your case.

You can turn to the Law Offices of Randy Collins for defense for the following:

Orange County Arson Attorney

In California, a person can be charged with arson if they deliberately or recklessly set fire to someone else's property. These offenses are felonies and can result in prison, fines, psychiatric evaluation, and/or a requirement to register as an arson offender.

Orange County Assault and Battery Lawyer

Although these terms are usually grouped together, in California, assault and battery are two separate offenses. Assault involves attempting or threatening to cause bodily to another, while battery is actually injuring someone else. Generally, the crimes are misdemeanors, punishable by jail time and/or fines, but enhanced penalties may be levied if the offense involved aggravating factors, such as causing serious injury or using a deadly weapon.

Orange County Burglary Lawyer

The elements of burglary include entering a structure with the intent to commit a crime while there. If it occurs at a residence, it is charged as first-degree burglary. If it occurs in a commercial establishment, it is charged as second-degree burglary.

Orange County Domestic Violence Attorney

In California, domestic violence involves abuse or threatened abuse against a family or household member. Various crimes can be charged as domestic violence, such as elder abuse or spousal abuse. Depending on the type of conduct involved, these offenses are either misdemeanors or felonies, and can be penalized by incarceration, fines, probation, and a requirement to complete a batterer's intervention program.

Orange County Drug Crimes Attorney

Drug crimes involve various types of conduct with controlled substances, such as possession, possession with intent to sell, and transportation. Depending on the nature of the crime, the alleged offender can face misdemeanor or felony drug charges. A conviction can lead to incarceration and/or fines, as well as other sanctions, but in some cases, defendants may be eligible for drug diversion programs that can help them avoid incarceration.

Orange County DUI Lawyer

A person commits a DUI when they operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 or higher (unless the driver was under 21 years of age – then the BAC limit is 0.01). The penalties for the offense vary depending on whether this is a person's first, second, third, fourth, or subsequent DUI violation or if any aggravating factors were involved.

Orange County DUID Attorney

A person can be charged with driving under the influence of drugs – or drugged driving – if they operated a vehicle while their mental or physical faculties were affected by a controlled substance. A conviction can result in probation, fines, and/or driver's license suspension.

Orange County Fraud Lawyer

Fraud occurs when someone engages in deceptive and illegal activities for their own benefit or someone else's loss. All kinds of crimes fall under this umbrella term, including forgery, falsifying a legal document, and health care fraud.

Orange County Hit and Run Attorney

When someone is in a car accident, they are required to stop at or near the scene and exchange information with others involved and render reasonable assistance to any injured party. Leaving the scene of an accident before fulfilling legal duties or not stopping at all is a crime. It can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, and in addition to incarceration and/or fines, a conviction can also lead to points on the individual's driver's license.

Orange County Robbery Attorney

Robbery occurs when a person unlawfully takes property from someone's immediate person or presence by using force or fear. Possible charges include first-degree robbery, second-degree robbery, and armed robbery.

Orange County Juveniles Crimes Lawyer

If a minor between 10 and 17 years of age commits an offense, they will be charged with a juvenile crime. The juvenile justice system differs from the adult system but can still lead to a range of sanctions, such as court supervision, probation, being sent to probation camp, or being placed in foster care.

Orange County Murder Attorney

California defines murder as the unlawful killing of another person. It can either result from an intentional act or engaging in dangerous conduct that the individual knew could have caused someone's death. Possible charges are first-degree murder, second-degree murder, felony murder, and capital murder. Penalties can include death, life without parole, or 25 years to life in prison.

Orange County Probation Violation Lawyer

When a person is convicted of a crime, the judge may sentence them to probation. During the probationary period, the individual must follow whatever conditions the judge imposed, such as enrolling in a drug or alcohol program, not contacting the victim, completing community service, or participating in counseling or therapy. Failing to comply with the terms is a probation violation, which can lead to a hearing and revocation of probation.

Orange County Sex Crimes Lawyer

"Sex crimes" refers to a wide range of offenses involving sexually related conduct, such as child molestation, date rape, rape, and child pornography. The conviction penalties are long-lasting and include incarceration, fines, and/or a requirement to register as a sex offender.

Orange County Theft Crime Attorney

Generally, theft involves taking another person's property without consent. Examples of offenses include grand theft, petty theft, identity theft, and receiving stolen property.

Orange County White Collar Crimes Lawyer

The term "white collar crime" refers to a range of offenses that involve defrauding someone out of money or property. These offenses usually happen in the business or government sectors and include, but are not limited to, bankruptcy fraud, money laundering, insurance fraud, extortion, mortgage fraud, embezzlement, and tax evasion.
