Every person who is accused of a crime in Orange County, Riverside, or anywhere in California deserves a vigorous defense. Criminal penalties include the possibility of incarceration, severe fines, and the loss of driving privileges, but convictions often continue to affect lives long after the penalty has been discharged. The loss of employment, ineligibility for professional licenses, immigration restrictions, and social stigma are all consequences that can only be avoided by fighting a criminal charge.

Criminal convictions must be based on proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Seasoned criminal defense lawyers establish reasonable doubt through careful investigation of the facts, skilled cross-examination of witnesses, and impassioned argument to jurors. Randy Collins has the knowledge, experience, and commitment to help individuals who are accused of committing crimes in Orange County and Riverside.
