Placer County Criminal Defense Attorney

Start Your Defense with an Aggressive Rocklin Defense Lawyer

Being charged with a criminal offense can be nerve wracking and worrisome. As such charges can carry serious consequences, it can be hard not to consider the toll they can take on your future. It is important that you contact a trusted attorney as soon as you are charged.

The outcome of a case often depends on how early in the process an attorney is contacted. Statements and evidence should be collected, and a strong, personalized defense should be understood before making any decisions regarding the case. Jacob Law Firm stands ready and always available to our clients.

Types of Criminal Defense Charges

There are two categories of crimes: misdemeanors and felonies. Each carries a separate punishment, ranging from fines or community service to jail or prison time. Felonies can include offenses like homicide, attempted homicide, assault, and theft or damage involving high dollar amounts.

Misdemeanor crimes carry a lesser punishment and can include offenses like simple drug charges, low-value robbery, and some weapons charges. Misdemeanor crimes often carry fines, though they can still mean incarceration.

What to Expect in a Criminal Defense Case

Once you've hired an attorney to help with your charge, the first thing you can expect is an arraignment, where you will appear before a judge and be formally advised of the charges against you. At this time, your plea will be entered, and the judge will decide whether to release you pending trial or remand you to jail. After the arraignment, you will be required to attend a preliminary hearing, where the prosecution will attempt to convince the judge a crime has taken place. Afterward, either a settlement or a full trial should be expected.

Jacob Law Firm can help you through all of these steps. You will need the help of a good criminal lawyer, one with years of experience who is familiar with not only the law but with courtroom policies and procedures as well.

  • "Knowledgeable, compassionate and True to his word"

    “I was researching for an attorney online and came across the JacobsLawFirm. After reading the outstanding reviews, I decided that I would give them a call. I was surprised that Mr Jacobs answered his phone at 11PM on a Friday night. He was very helpful and took the time to explain the legal process that we were going through. Many times, he comforted my wife and I while going through a very traumatic event. Throughout all our communications, Ben was very responsive, professional and I would definitely recommend JacobLawFirm to my family and friends if ever needed. Thank you Ben!”

    “Ben Jacob is hands down an attorney you can trust. We knew right away that we could trust him with our son's case. He was kind, honest and respectable. We are so grateful for the effort and time he put into our son's case. I would highly recommend him if you want the best possible results and attorney with integrity. Thank you, Ben!”

  • Helped me get my life on track.

    “I was in search of a lawyer to help me clear up some past issues, and to help me get all my legal stuff in order. When I called the office I was able to speak directly to him and tell him my story. We met a couple days later and I hired him on the spot. Very personable and down to earth, he was able to give me his opinions and the scope of what I would be looking at to get my issues resolved. On the days of court he met me at the courthouse and was able to defend me quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend him to others in search of a good lawyer that will get things done.”

  • Excellent Customer Service

    “Mr. Jacob was very responsive. I put a call out to 6 attorneys, and I got two back. Mr. Jacob within a business day, the other 3 days later, and no response from the others. He was able to handle the case without us flying back to resolve the issue. Thank you”
