Face-to-Face Meeting to Review Your Case
I've been handling criminal-related matters for people who have been arrested in the city of Canoga Park now for 26 years. I've handled thousands of cases. That jurisdiction is controlled by the Van Nuys court, which is very close to Canoga Park. My office in Encino is about ten or fifteen minutes away. If you live in the City of Canoga Park or if you were passing through and got arrested there, you've got lucky because you've come to an attorney that has a lot of experience in the courthouse where your case is pending.
The first thing I would suggest you do is to pick up the phone and give me a call. Let's have a face-to-face meeting. You can usually get in to see me within a day or two of the call. We will go over everything under the attorney/client privilege cloak and figure out your best strategy.
If you were arrested or cited in, obviously you're concerned, scared, and unsure how things will go down; that's one of the first things that we talk about when we meet, which is what are you facing? What can you do to assist in your case, and what will I do to help you and get things moving in the right direction?
Once we have that conversation, you start to get your peace of mind back because you see what you're up against. The fear of the unknown is the biggest problem for criminal defense.
I know that because I've been doing it a long time, and I enjoy helping people — putting them out of their misery of worry — and that's not an easy thing to do. Because when you're facing jail time, prison time, probation, the loss of your rights, it's not easy to get your mind at ease and get your mind straight. I know that's part of my job in addition to defending you.
What is the Best Strategy Moving Forward?
One of the first things we're going to need to decide if the police arrested you in the city of Canoga Park is what is going to be our best strategy moving forward? Are we going to try to fight the case?
Have a jury trial and find you not guilty. Is that not realistic under the circumstances? Talking to the prosecutors, doing damage control, and getting a mitigation package with character letters are better. We can also get all the information about you that's positive because the police don't do an excellent job of getting the other side of the equation about talking about you.
They're more focused on getting the evidence to convict you versus getting an accurate picture of what happened. Sometimes they give a skewed version of what happened to the prosecutors, who are the lawyers like me on the other side.
So, they have a wrong impression of you when they try to figure out what to do, how to handle the case, what type of punishment, what kind of charges to file against you. It's my job to be your champion in that regard and get your side of the story across to them, and I'm very effective at doing that. So, pick up the phone. Ask to speak to Ron Hedding. We'll get you in the office. We'll go over everything.
Reviewing Police Report and Other Evidence
I'm also going to want to talk to the prosecutor to see what their perspective is and look at whatever information they have about the case — the police report, any surveillance, any videos, and then we're going to have a good conversation about what they have, here's what I suggest you do.
Here's what our game plan is. Then we're going to set about doing everything we can to protect your rights, freedom, reputation, and freedom. This is something that's right up my alley. I've been handling cases in the San Fernando Valley now for a long time. I've represented hundreds of clients with great success, and that's because I work hard. I know what it takes to be successful.
Once I'm met with a set of circumstances, I can usually best figure out the right moves. I'll say to you how it is. I'm truthful. I'm genuine. I'm straightforward. Look at my reviews. Look at my videos online. I've put out about 300 YouTube videos on every area of criminal defense. I'm here to help you. Pick up the phone and get your case moving in the right direction.
