Protect your Kid.

Sometimes the unthinkable happens and your child is arrested for a juvenile crime.  Your lives have been turned upside down.  It is so important to keep a level head and NEVER trust the authorities to treat him or her with respect.  You must act immediately if your child has been arrested and held in juvenile hall. 

The prospect of juvenile court is looming.  So that you understand, this is a special department of a trial court for under-age defendants who are charged with crimes.  By under-age we mean under the age of 18 in the State of California.  Serious and repeat crimes can land a young person in prison!

This is NO small matter.  Your kid’s entire future is on the line.  At a time such as this the first thing to do is pick up the phone and call San Jose CA juvenile crime defense attorney William Chestnut.  For over 40 years he has defended the rights of those under 18 accused of every imaginable crime.  Call him immediately at (408) 298-6990.

Check out activities for kids and families around the San Jose area and plan your next family adventure! 



Temperaments Rising.

When temperatures rise, all too often, so do temperaments.  Hot weather, unfortunately, often triggers domestic violence.  The kids are home from school, the family is strained by familiarity - whatever the reason may be, restraint is the order of the day.  There is NEVER an excuse for domestic violence!

In the State of California steps have been taken to curb it by requiring arrests at the scene.  The prosecution is vigorous and the sentences are severe.  Make no mistake about it, if you are accused of domestic violence your future is in serious jeopardy if you are convicted.  Quick judgments lead to mistakes often being made.

Don’t be a victim of a false charge.  If you are arrested and accused, immediately call San Jose area domestic violence defense attorney William Chestnut.  He has been around long enough practicing before California criminal courts to know how the law works TODAY.  Call him right away for aggressive representation at (408) 298-6990.

Heroin use is on the Rise in California.

Unless you have been in a cave you have probably heard about rising heroin overdoses and arrests around the country.  Let’s focus on the millennials for a moment.  This segment of our society between 18 and 35 years of age is shaping the future of America.  Their use of heroin is growing at an alarming rate at least in the Big Bear State. 

Here is a statistic that may shock you.  Between 2012 and 2016 millennials checking into California ER rooms with heroin overdoses has increased by OVER 100%!  Just in the latest reporting year of 2015 our state’s 20 somethings had over 1500 emergency hospital visits because of this drug which is 50% more than 2012.

You may know or even BE a millennial caught in the middle of all this and suddenly your life is turned upside down with an arrest for possession.  That is when you act immediately and call San Jose CA heroin possession defense attorney William Chestnut.  In his many years he has just about seen it all and will act quickly to rally to your defense.  Call him at (408) 298-6990.
