Bakersfield Criminal Defense Attorney

Being arrested for an offense in Kern County can be frightening, particularly if you face fines and incarceration. The legal team at Koenig Law Office is ready to be your first line of defense. You are presumed innocent until proven guilty, and irrespective of the charge you are facing, we will ensure your rights are protected.

Our mission is to enable you to feel ready and comfortable to face the criminal charge against you. With many years of legal experience, you can be confident that you have world-class representation throughout the criminal process.

Dedicated to Defending Your Constitutional Rights

Following your arrest, you should not say anything to law enforcement until you have talked to your defense attorney. While you have a right to remain silent, most people don't know their constitutional rights and might not realize that prosecutors could use their words against them in a court of law.

Additionally, the prosecutor should prove beyond any reasonable doubt that you violated the law. However, prosecutors often recommend the maximum penalties, knowing that the jury view accusations with unforgiving eyes. Irrespective of whether you are charged with a felony or misdemeanor, you require the help of a skilled attorney. While the case could be settled out of court, the lawyer should be prepared to defend you in court, and at Koenig Law Office, we are up to the challenge.

Meet the Criminal Defense Attorney

Bo Koenig

Bo Koenig is well respected in the legal community as a seasoned and aggressive criminal counsel with numerous successful outcomes.

He is a member of the California Bar Association. He attended California State University Bakersfield for his Business Administration degree. In 2007, he enrolled in San Joaquin College of Law, graduated in 2010, and has been managing his law firm since 2014.

Born in Israel, he is acquainted with the complicated and always changing California criminal laws, court systems, jury, judicial procedures, prosecutors, protocols, and penalties. Most importantly, he knows how to use the most suitable legal defenses based on case circumstances to get case evidence suppressed, not-guilty verdicts, and case dismissals.

Bo Koenig has litigated and defended cases of all sizes, including (not limited to):

  • Theft crimes
  • Drug-related offenses
  • Sex crimes
  • DUI
  • Weapon crimes
  • Violent offenses
  • Domestic violence

The professional accountant turned legal expert brings passion into the courtroom and is a knowledgeable trial lawyer.

He takes pride in serving his clients. Often legal experts forgot how devastating it could be for defendants. That's why all Bo Koenig's clients could expect to receive the white glove treatment. It involves a thorough description of the court appearance and why they are essential instead of being told when and where to appear. 

Moreover, he is actively involved in the organizations below:

  • National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 Under 40
  • California DUI Lawyers Association
  • National Trial Lawyers: Top 100
  • Kern County Bar Association, Criminal Defense Section Board Member
  • Kern County Bar Association, Criminal Defense Section Board Member

He is also a board member for the Kern Autism Society.

Isn't this the type of expertise, the kind of attorney you need throughout the case, protecting your constitutional rights, and making sure you get the best possible case outcome?

Having the appropriate attorney at your side is even more essential when you consider the devastating consequences of charges and conviction. For instance, driving under the influence charges might cause suspension of your driver's license, installing an ignition interlock device, and hefty fines. California laws are complicated, and a record will negatively affect your life, the ability to secure a lucrative job, housing, and educational opportunities. Since a criminal conviction is a severe matter, you must consider seeking representation from seasoned attorneys immediately.

The Experienced Defense You Require

If your loved one has been accused of an offense, you cannot risk putting their life in the hands of an incompetent attorney. If you do, their future and rights could be at stake.

Criminal defense is paramount. If your loved one has been arrested, they require a renowned and trusted defense attorney to represent them. Whether they are guilty or not, they have constitutional rights. Without the right legal representation, they could be prosecuted wrongly. They could even pay hefty fines and spend more time in jail. A conviction is life-altering, impacting the ability to take part in civil life and secure employment.

Our lawyers understand that being accused of an offense could be a stressful and frightening experience. While every case has its unique circumstances and facts, having a legal expert on your side could assist you in the case.

Consequently, any experienced lawyer will thoroughly analyze your case circumstances and the laws. The expert will interview witnesses and review the police report to verify probable cause for your arrest, search, and seizure existed. If any misconduct is found, we will work to exclude proof unlawfully acquired or even dismiss charges. The lawyer can also engage scientific and forensic experts or private investigators to help put on the defense. Building a robust defense is paramount in winning the case and places your defense in an excellent position to negotiate for a case dismissal, deferred prosecution, and probation.

Your defense lawyer can also assist in finding other methods of receiving less severe penalties or reduce sentencing. It might be possible without proceeding to trial (however, we are prepared to represent you in court proceedings, if need be). Receiving a reduction in sentencing could aid you to avoid incarceration altogether or have a chance to restart your life as soon as possible following serving time.

As far as legal matters are concerned, time is of the essence. The earlier you consult with your defense attorney, the increased likelihood of realizing positive results in the case. Over time, evidence might be overlooked or lost, or witnesses' memories fade. If you've been accused of a crime, please talk with a qualified attorney immediately.
