California Courts Getting A Cut

You might have heard by now that Governor Jerry Brown is issuing new cuts in services for the State of California in response to a revised $16 billion budget shortfall. Part of the services that Brown mentioned would be severely cut is the state’s trial court system, one of the largest in the country, by $544 million.

Now, you might be asking yourself, “what does this have to do with me?”. Well, it has everything to do with you. If you have been charged with a crime like driving under the influence (DUI), theft crimes, drug crimes, or a hit and run, less court resources means less services available to you. Wait times are going to increase, less courtrooms will be open which means the city and district attorneys are going to be even more overworked, and less attention will get paid to your case. Because of this, it is important that you hire Attorney Ross Erlich to handle your case and use our state’s current financial mess to your advantage.

One of the “advantages” of the cuts in state trial court funding is that the prosecutors will likely be more inclined to accept offers and plea bargains put forward by defense attorneys and structured to benefit our client. Drawing on Attorney Ross Erlich’s experience in dealing with prosecutors and arranging favorable plea bargains, Attorney Ross Erlich will aggressively pursue reduced charges and even outright dismissals! There are numerous other advantages for criminal defense attorney’s in today’s day in age, so contact attorney Ross Erlich at (323) 222-4529 for your free consultation.
