Criminal Defense Attorney


Maybe a better question is: “how do you find the best criminal defense attorney for you?” This requires a handful of questions you need to ask yourself.


First, is the criminal defense attorney experienced with your exact type of charge? Nobody goes to a heart surgeon to take care of a broken foot. With criminal defense, the most common aspect you will find is that there are many categories of lawyers who seem to focus on some charges more than others.


Some find themselves focused entirely on life exposure cases like homicides. Others handle only DUI’s and other driving related offenses. Therefore, it’s important to ask what their primary focus is so that you know whether they will be a good fit. Among the practice areas he holds extensive experience in, drug crimes rank prominently in Kaspero’s knowledge and ability to navigate the courtrooms.


Second, is the lawyer familiar with the courthouse your case is in? All California criminal defense lawyers who are licensed can practice in every courthouse that is within the state. But courthouses (and even courtrooms for that matter) have very different ways of doing things. Sometimes, the same hearings go by different names depending on what county you are in. These small differences could possibly affect your chances of being taken seriously by the court your case sits in. If your lawyer does not know the nuances of the courtroom, it may pose a challenge to navigate it in the best way possible. Bart Kaspero has extensive experience in Orange County, CA. Including: Newport Beach, Mission Viejo, Laguna Beach, Irvine & Lake Forest.


Finally, is the criminal defense attorney you are considering to hire have some kind of a strategy or plan in mind for you? It’s one thing to suggest how your kind of charge is generally handled. It’s an entirely different thing to go deep into your facts and circumstances and suggest a game plan that satisfies your ultimate goal. Some strategies of criminal defense lawyers include finding a negotiated settlement without jail consequences as quickly as possible. But this plan may not meet the needs of a client who wants to fight the charges to the end. A no-jail deal with the District Attorney (DA) on the case does nothing for a client who cannot suffer a conviction on their record. Therefore, you will have to make sure to also communicate your goals to the attorney so that they can help you make the right decision in getting there.

Therefore, to make navigation easier, you will find pages with the following titles: Marijuana Lawyer, Cocaine Lawyer, Methamphetamine Lawyer, Heroin Lawyer, Prescription Pill Lawyer, Ecstasy Lawyer, Drug Paraphernalia Lawyer, Drug Possession LawyerDrug Sales Lawyer and DUI Lawyer.

Among the handful of focus areas Bart Kaspero practices in the law, he has extensive experience in complex drug crime cases. This site, therefore, is intended to help you navigate the many hurdles that come drug laws in our courts.

No one ever wants to think they would ever have to look for a Lawyer—especially a criminal defense Lawyer. But the truth is, anyone who faces an arrest or a charge by local police should consult with one. So how does one go about finding one? And how do you decide which one to go with?

Your criminal defense Lawyer is your representative: he or she represents your good character, your side of the story, your defenses to the charge against you, and your adviser on what the criminal justice system has planned for you—and how it should be navigated. But if you’re like most people, you don’t know what makes a good one and what doesn’t.

Marijuana Lawyer

Cocaine Lawyer

Similar to methamphetamine possession, even the smallest amount has been enough to prosecute individuals who are found to possess cocaine. Additionally, even a small enough amount for personal use can be misconstrued as a possession for sale of cocaine depending on the manner in which the case was investigated. It does not matter if there was no “under cover” purchase or sting operation. Read more on Cocaine Lawyer.

Methamphetamine Lawyer

Even the smallest amount of methamphetamine possession have been prosecuted by local law enforcement agencies that would shock the public. While not most cases, possession and sale of methamphetamine can carry serious consequences. Hiring a lawyer to defend you can help you.

Heroin Lawyer

Considered one of the most addicting of controlled substances, being arrested or charged for heroin is a serious offense and requires an experienced lawyer familiar with laws regarding heroin.

With so many drugs being prescribed every day, some fall into dependency. And as with any other substance that can bring on an addiction, anyone can find themselves under arrest and charged with serious crimes. Just because a doctor had at one time prescribed you or your family member a particular drug does not give you an absolute defense in the case. Read more on Prescription Drug Lawyer.

DUI Lawyer

Sometimes called “cyber crime” or “hacking”, computer related crimes can range from fraud, espionage, intrusions, even terrorism.
