Facing a criminal arrest in Bakersfield is one of the most frightening and stressful things that can happen to you because you may be a few steps away from life-altering consequences.

In this case, your first line of defense is a criminal defense lawyer.

Therefore, regardless of the charges against you, do not panic. We will do everything legally possible to defend your rights. Our major objective is to help you prepare a solid defense to fight the charges. With decades of criminal defense experience, you can rely on us to accord you top-notch representation.
We Are Devoted to Protecting Your Legal Rights
After an arrest, you may feel you need to prove your innocence right away. However, the best thing to do is to remain silent because you have that right. Do not talk to the police until you speak to your lawyer. Remember that the prosecutors or police could use anything you say against you in court.
Also, the burden to show that you perpetrated the crime they are accusing you of lies with the prosecutor. However, prosecutors usually seek the maximum possible penalties for a crime, aware that judges/juries take criminal accusations very seriously. Whether you have been accused of a misdemeanor or felony, you need help from an experienced lawyer. Whereas the prosecution may agree to settle your case without a court trial, your attorney should be ready with a defense strategy if your case goes to trial, and our lawyers are always prepared.
Hiring us to defend you comes with several benefits that you will not find in other law firms. These include:
Thanks to our experience and vast resources, we are competitive and effective.

Bo Koenig is an experienced and assertive criminal defense attorney who commands respect in the state's legal community thanks to his several successful outcomes.
Attorney Koenig was born in Tel-Aviv, Israel, but has lived in Bakersfield, CA, most of his life. This has made him highly conversant with the intricate, constantly changing state criminal laws and criminal procedures, court systems, protocols, jury, and penalties. More importantly, he understands what legal defenses best apply to which situation depending on case facts to have evidence suppressed and obtain case dismissals, reductions, or not-guilty judgments.
Bo Koenig went to Bakersfield High School before attending California State University - Bakersfield, where he graduated with a degree in Business Administration. After working as an accountant for several years, he joined San Joaquin College of Law to fulfill his life-long passion for assisting others.

This is undoubtedly the lawyer and level of expertise you require for your case, defending your legal rights and ensuring you obtain the most favorable outcome.
Retaining the appropriate lawyer is more critical if you think of all the devastating repercussions of a conviction. For example, a DUI charge may cause you to lose your driving privilege and heavy fines, while a sex crime may earn you the designated sex offender title, which is more stigmatizing. State laws are intricate, and a criminal record will adversely impact your life, including the capability to secure housing, educational opportunities, and housing. Since a conviction is more detrimental, consider seeking expert legal representation as soon as possible.
If you have been charged with a crime, you cannot afford to entrust your life to an incompetent lawyer. Doing that will endanger your rights and future.
Expert defense is vital. If you have been arrested, you need a trusted defense lawyer to represent you. Whether or not you are guilty, you have rights, and they should be protected. Without skilled legal representation, you could be convicted wrongly, making you pay heavy fines and serve a lengthy incarceration period. A conviction may change your life, affecting your ability to secure employment and participate in civil matters.
At the Koenig Law Office, we understand that a criminal accusation can be frightening and stressful. Whereas each case is unique, expert legal representation is beneficial.
We will thoroughly review your case facts and analyze the applicable laws. We will interview eyewitnesses and examine the prosecution's proof to substantiate whether probable cause existed for the arrest to take place. We will also verify whether the police conducted an illegal search or seizure. If we find any misconduct, we will move to have the illegally acquired proof excluded from the case or even fight for a charge dismissal. We can also involve private investigators or forensic and scientific experts to assist us in building the needed defense. Mounting a strong defense is key to winning the charges against you. It also gives us a better chance to negotiate a better deal such as probation, deferred (suspended) prosecution, and charge dismissal.
We can also help you find other ways of obtaining lenient penalties or reduced sentencing. Your case may not reach the trial stage, although we are ready to fight for you if we must go to court. Receiving a reduced sentence can help you avoid incarceration or have the chance to start on a clean slate right after you serve your time.
Regarding legal matters, time is an essential factor. The sooner you contact your defense lawyer for a consultation, the higher chances you will have to realize a positive outcome for your case. With time, evidence may be lost or overlooked. Or, the memories of witnesses may fade. If you have been charged with a criminal offense, please consult with an experienced lawyer immediately.

A criminal accusation is not something to take lightly. If convicted, you are looking at incarceration, hefty fines, and probation as the consequences, not to mention the collateral repercussions. Fortunately, the prosecutor should first prove you are guilty beyond reasonable doubt before the court could convict you. Therefore, being arrested or charged with a crime does not always mean you will be pronounced guilty.
