There is No Substitute for Experience.

This is so true in most areas of endeavor.  With the years come a sense of confidence and trust because you know that the company or individual in question has “been through the wars” so to speak.  They bring an expertise to the table that someone with only a year or two of experience cannot offer.

San Jose criminal attorney William Chestnut has defended hundreds in our area for over more than four decades.  He has seen and fought for California citizens who have been accused of such things as domestic violence, felony crimes, environmental crimes, juvenile offenses, criminal fraud, drug violations, and so much more.

Attorney William Chestnut knows his way around California Criminal Courts.  He is a proud native of San Jose and stands at the ready when you or a loved one have been accused of a crime.  The California criminal justice system is tough.  You cannot afford to trust just anyone to defend you.  Trust the experience of Bill Chestnut.  Give him a call today at (408) 298-6990.

Maybe the charges are the only thing that’s fraudulent.

What defines a charge of fraud in the State of California?  In our state, fraud is an intentional misrepresentation, deceit, or concealment of a material fact known to the defendant with the intention on the part of the defendant of thereby depriving a person of property or legal rights or otherwise causing injury.

Intentional fraud or deceit occurs when the perpetrator uses deceit to convince the victim to rely on the false facts.  Then the victim reasonably relied on and was harmed by the deceit.  Constructive fraud occurs when the perpetrator misrepresents to the victim that an important false fact is true. 

There is a broad interpretation of fraud in the Big Bear State.  You need a top criminal fraud attorney like William Chestnut to defend you against these charges.  Attorney Chestnut has defended Californian’s accused of fraud for more than 40 years.  Arrange for a free consultation at his San Jose office by calling (408) 298-6990.

There is a Meth to the Madness.

Let’s talk about one drug in particular.  Getting charged with the possession of methamphetamine is a serious crime.  It goes by many names, but meth is a potent stimulant that carries an exceptionally negative stigma.  If you or a loved one has been charged with possessing meth, you may face a severe uphill battle.

You should know what it takes to be convicted of meth possession.  You had actual possession of the drug at the time of the arrest.  You knew that it was methamphetamine and not something else.  You are holding more than just a trace amount.  It is known as a “usable quantity”.  That could be interpreted in different ways.

You can’t turn back the clock.  Being convicted of meth possession carries life-altering penalties.  At this time, you need aggressive representation from a California drug defense attorney.  The right person for the job may well be the 45-year practicing San Jose criminal lawyer William Chestnut.  Call Bill today and discuss your case at his office.  That number is (408) 298-6990.

Juvenile Crime in California.

Every state has its problems with young people being arrested on suspicion of committing a felony.  California, because of its diversity and shear population, is at or near the top of the list.  The statistics reveal a great deal about the types of juvey crime in the Big Bear State.  Here are some of them.

In the most recent reporting period we found that over one-third of all arrests of young people are for violent offenses.  That is a startling stat!  Beyond that, nearly a third involved property violation.  Most of the rest were for offenses such as weapons, hit-and-run, drugs and alcohol possession, etc.

When a young person in your life runs afoul of California State Law you call in a veteran who has been defending kids in juvenile courts throughout the state for more than four decades.  That bull-dogged defense will be provided by William Chestnut.  Attorney Chestnut knows his way around California Juvenile Court.  Call his San Jose office for a consultation at (408) 298-6990.
