Q – What is a serious or Complex/Violent Crime?
A - A "serious or violent crime", commonly called a "strike", is defined as a person doing something against another person that threatens, attempts or actually causes physical harm. The use of anything that could be used as a weapon, including any firearm, makes almost any crime a "strike" in California. Violent offenses are often motivated by hatred and can result in the most serious punishments of all crime types. In California, some of those offenses can result in prison sentences for your entire life. A few can include punishment in prison for life without the possibility of parole.
Violent crimes range from a simple assault or attempted assault through murder and can carry a wide variety of sentences including death. The high stakes and high emotions involved in violent crime cases demand a careful and well planned defense. You need a local Bakersfield assault lawyer, who specializes in criminal defense.

Q - What can you do for me?
A - A case involving accusations of violent crime can be quite complex. The prosecutor will consider physical evidence, your past criminal history, motive, intent, access to weapons, witness testimony, forensic and scientific analysis and other circumstantial evidence in building their case.
My name is Fred Gagliardini and I have represented individuals in more than 3,300 cases. Many of my cases resolve before trial I know right where to look in a case for the weakest parts. That gives me great strength in negotiating with the prosecutor for the best deal.
Q – What if the prosecutor won’t make me a deal?
A - If the prosecutor won’t deal, then I’m not scared to take them to trial. Why? Because I’ve done more than 200 jury trials – and many of my trials end in success. My trial experience includes DUI, domestic violence, narcotics, guns, and gangs, up to and including complicated attepmted murder, murder and death penalty cases.
Q – But my case involves very complicated scientific evidence. How can you help with that?
A - I have years of training and experience in cases where the science of DNA, toxicology, ballistics, fingerprinting, and medical issues are important.
