We Treat You With Respect and Insist That Others Do as Well
If you have been charged with a sex offense, you could be facing not only serious criminal penalties, but also a social stigma from the moment you are charged. You need a lawyer who will take your side and make sure your rights are protected during this difficult experience.
At The Law Office of Charles B. Smith, we don't judge clients who have been charged with sex crimes or any other crimes. We understand the embarrassment and shame that can result from the filing of sex charges, and we provide compassionate and aggressive representation.
San Mateo sex crime defense attorney Charles B. Smith — a former prosecutor and former police officer — has handled hundreds of sex offense cases on both sides of the aisle. His experience and commitment have resulted in success helping clients fight charges such as:
- Sexual assault
- Prostitution and solicitation
- Child molestation
- Child pornography offenses
- Solicitation of a minor
- Indecent exposure
Mr. Smith is frequently called upon to instruct law enforcement officers and college students on criminal investigation techniques. He is highly skilled at spotting unreliable evidence and violations of police procedure, which can result in plea bargains and dismissals in sex cases.
Our firm also uses experts, including psychiatrists and sociologists, to explain why certain sex offenses occur. By contacting victims, agreeing to make amends, and humanizing alleged violators to judges and juries, we are often successful at having charges reduced or dismissed.
Handling Sex Cases With Discretion and Professionalism
We understand that everyone charged with a sex crime deserves to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. Actions can be misinterpreted, and accusers may have ulterior motives for pressing charges. A person's upbringing can also influence his or her behavior in the present.
We will work on your case with discretion, protecting your privacy and confidentiality while mounting an aggressive defense on your behalf. We have helped people from all walks of life, including executives and celebrities concerned about keeping their names out of the spotlight.
