Criminal Defense

Drug Crimes

You could face significant jail or prison time and steep financial penalties for drug crimes. If you or someone you know has recently been charged with a drug-related offense, call Jeffrey B. Hayden, Attorney at Law immediately. He will fight for your rights and get you back on the right path.

DUI / Drunk Driving

DUI and drunk driving cases can be particularly challenging, especially if your record contains a prior conviction. In addition to the prospect of jail time, you could also face the suspension of your driver’s license, lost wages or employment, and significant financial penalties.

Juvenile Defense

Jeffrey B. Hayden, Attorney at Law has spent over 25 years defending California’s youth from hardships that often accompany juvenile offenses. If your child has recently been charged with a juvenile offense, contact Jeffrey Hayden as soon as possible and protect your child’s future.

Felony Crimes

It should go without saying that felony offenses are far more serious than misdemeanors, both in terms of potential prison sentences and the financial penalties that oftentimes accompany them. If you’re facing a felony charge, the best thing you can do is hire an experienced attorney.
