Three Strikes Law
Michael L. Fell will work hard to keep all strike offenses off your record and protect you from harsh sentencing enhancements.
California’s Three Strikes Law is a very complicated sentencing enhancement scheme designed to keep violent repeat offenders off the streets. If you have any serious or violent felony convictions on your criminal record, the Three Strikes Law could apply to any new felony charges you may face.
With your second felony, you could be sentenced to double the penalties that would normally apply.
With your third felony, the stakes can get even higher. If this third “strike” is a serious or violent felony, you could get incarcerated for 25 years to life.
Thanks to recent Three Strikes Law reform, you can no longer face life in prison for a non-violent third strike felony like drug possession or receiving stolen goods. Instead, non-violent third strikes are treated like second strikes.
We don’t blame you.
The Three Strikes Law is full of exceptions and exceptions to the exceptions—especially regarding which felonies can qualify as strikes under what circumstances.
Fortunately, you don’t have to master Three Strikes Law yourself in order to avoid being unfairly punished under it. All you have to do is retain a defense attorney like Michael L. Fell who does understand the law and will fight aggressively for your rights.

Facing Your Third Strike? Don’t Give Up
If you already have two qualifying convictions on your record, and it seems likely you will be convicted of a third, don’t give up. Attorney Fell may still be able to help you. In order to impose a third strike sentence enhancement, the prosecution must prove that the first and second strikes were valid.
