Since then, he has fought aggressively to ensure the rights of all of his clients are protected. We as a nation are a minuscule part of the world's population yet we imprison far more persons per capita than any other industrialized nation. That is a terrifying thought. It really makes you pause and think about the line: "land of the free...". Maybe land of the mostly free would be more apropos.
This isn't an effort to smear our justice system, it can only be improved when awareness is made and reform is pursued.
Until then, if you or someone you know are facing criminal charges, don't go it alone. Seek the counsel of a competent attorney who knows the law inside and out. The Law Offices Of William Chestnut are standing by and ready to fight for you.

Society is becoming less tolerant. The legal system continues to get tougher on individual civil liberties. As a result, more people are being convicted of crimes every year-people who might not have faced such harsh penalties in the past. Tougher sentences, mandated by sentencing guidelines, mean that more people are serving longer sentences than ever before-sentences that may not fit the crime.
If you have been charged with a crime in California, you shouldn't gamble with the justice system. You value your freedom. You need to take action to protect it.
