As a former Orange County Senior Deputy District Attorney where he prosecuted cases for over 18 years, Michael L. Fell understands how prosecutors think and how they make this decision. This enables him to have great success in convincing prosecutors to keep felony charges off the table for his clients.
Creative Sentencing Solutions
If the evidence against you is strong, don’ worry. Attorney Fell is a master in negotiating creative sentencing solutions or plea deals that will allow you to resolve the case quickly and perhaps without any jail time at all. One possibility is to pay restitution to the party you allegedly stole from. The court may look on this act favorably and agree to reduced penalties or even an informal diversion program.
