    I cannot say enough great things about Ed. I hired him after I was pulled out for expired out of country DL. He managed the charges to be dismissed. I don't ever wish you need his services, but if you did, Ed Samuels is an excellent choice!...

    A few months back I got arrested for a DUI. I went to Ed through a friend's recommendation. I could not have been happier to have hired him. There are a lot dishonest lawyers out there who will try to capitalize on your fear of a conviction...

    I was arrested on a 647 (f). Ed immediately stood out from the other lawyers I called as someone who was both very knowledgeable and willing to talk openly about my case. He said it was very unlikely charges would be filed for my case. Of c...

    5.0/5.0

    I needed help with filing a motion at the Palo Alto courthouse, and Mr. Samuels made sure that it was granted. I live in LA, and Palo Alto was too far for me to appear in court - Mr. Samuels handled everything for me remotely. He went above...

Palo Alto Criminal Defense: Child Molestation Allegations

Palo Alto child molestation allegations attorney serving Cupertino, Los Gatos, Mountain View, Redwood City, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Saratoga & Sunnyvale

CHILD-SEX/CHILD MOLESTING CASES

As difficult as it may be for someone to be accused, I have years of experience in getting acceptable results for my clients in this situation.

Charged crimes in this area can be quite serious with significant state prison exposure. Attorneys not experienced in this field can unwittingly increase the degree of that exposure. For instance, in many situations, each act complained of, and for which the individual suffers conviction, could lead to full, separate and consecutive state prison sentences, lifetime registration as a sex offender, and other sanctions. However, the prosecution may not charge many of the acts complained of by the "victim." Unwitting exposure to these uncharged, but lurking, allegations could prove extremely damaging.

My experience in these matters gives me the ability to provide knowledgeable counsel and recommendations as to when to proceed in spite of this additional risk, and when to take advantage of the prosecution's failure to charge all allegations.

Also, I am aware that angry divorces often lead to these kinds of allegations. I have experience in dealing with that. The fact that one spouse charges the other with child molesting during these kinds of divorces, although not normal, is still not unusual. I work closely with family law attorneys to provide the best representation in these cases.

My Palo Alto Criminal Defense law firm serves all of Northern California and the Bay Area with particular emphasis in child molestation defense for Cupertino, Los Gatos, Mountain View, Redwood City, Saratoga, Sunnyvale, Palo Alto, Santa Clara County, San Mateo County, and Alameda County.
