Why Hire Us

Criminal Defense Lawyer in Visalia

A criminal charge is an intimidating experience for anyone. Being convicted of a crime often has life-long consequences, even if there is no jail sentence. You have a lot of decisions to make when planning your next move: Whether or not to post bail, choosing between a private attorney or public defender, whether or not to tell your employer, friends, and family about the arrest; no one can make these decisions for you, but at The Law Office of Gregory Hagopian, our Tulare County criminal defense lawyer can guide you through the criminal court system and make sure you fully understand the pros and cons of all your options.

Gregory Hagopian is a former prosecutor for Tulare County. He is one of the Central Valley’s only California Bar Association Certified Specialists in Criminal Law and is diversely experienced in criminal law from both sides of the aisle, having handled everything from traffic violations to violent crime charges. As your attorney, Mr. Hagiopan will relentlessly fight for the best outcome possible. Whether you are faced with a criminal trial, plea bargain, bail hearing, or are filing for expungement, Mr. Hagiopan can provide the dedicated and knowledgeable counsel you need to obtain a positive result.

The Benefits of Working with a Private Attorney

You have a right to legal counsel even if you can’t afford it, which is why every person accused of a crime is entitled to work with a public defender at no charge. This is a tempting proposition for many, and beneficial for those who can’t afford a private attorney, but if you have the means to hire your own counsel it is highly recommended that you do so.

Public defenders are juggling numerous cases at any given time. This leaves them with very little time to investigate the case, speak with their clients one-on-one, or spend dedicated energy building a personalized defense. A private attorney, on the other hand, gets to be selective with their casework. Our attorney only takes on cases in which he can provide clients with the quality time and attention they paid for.

Additionally, Mr. Hagiopan has significant legal experience, far more than is usually found with a public defender. There are so many seemingly insignificant details in a case that could end up changing the very nature of the trial. It takes a keen legal eye to spot them, and time to create a legal strategy that makes proper use of them.

Put your case in the hands of a Visalia criminal defense attorney that aggressively fights for the rights and freedom of his clients. Call (559) 377-6627 today.
