What to Expect in a Criminal Defense Case near Rocklin

Once you've hired a criminal defense lawyer in Rocklin 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.

  • Efficient, effective, and professional.

    “I initially hired Me Jacob for a fraud case that I was out on bail for in 2017. I caught 2 more cases and bailed out on them as well. Mr. Jacob fought for me for 4 years roughly and got my sentence reduced from 5 years four months at 80 percent to a 16 month with half and time served paper commitment in March of 2021. He was able to get 2 of my cases dropped and my motions passed. A hard feat to accomplish with my background and in Placer county court system. He didn't have much to work with and still made a miracle happen for me. It may have took some time 2017 to 2021 but he never gave up on me and provided service above and beyond my expectations. You should be so lucky to have him on your side in the courtroom and out.”

    “Attorney Ben Jacob is very professional. I called him with questions before I even retained him and he was very clear and courteous in answering all of them. I explained my situation to him and he guided me step by step as to how go about my case. I am very glad I found someone I can trust. Ben made the process easier by explaining what I needed to do and what was going to happen. He made me feel comfortable in knowing I will be okay. I've never been in a bad situation before and so I was scared and anxious but attorney Jacob reassured me he was going to work with me and the DA to make sure my case is resolved. Thanks Ben for all the hard work and dedication to making sure every client is represented and protected.”
