DUI, DUI with Injury, Vehicular Manslaughter

There are numerous issues with DUI cases. These cases blend search and seizure with science and administrative law issues. While some attorneys focus only on the criminal side of a case involving motor vehicles, David Fischer believes it is also important to coordinate the DMV case with the criminal case to minimize driver’s license issues.

Domestic Violence

David Fischer is a criminal lawyer service Placer County, and the surrounding area, who regularly defends clients accused of committing domestic violence. These cases can cause lifetime consequences. A client often has criminal, restraining order, job, and other issues that are connected to these allegations. As such, a careful approach to defending these cases is required.

Drug Crimes

David Fischer is a Placer County criminal lawyer with extensive experience handling large drug trafficking cases. Examples include large methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, MDMA, marijuana, and other drug distribution offenses. A significant number of clients have been charged with manufacturing marijuana, money laundering, and structuring of monetary transactions. Common issues involve the government’s use of confidential informants, search warrants, wiretaps, and controlled buys. My office has experience defending clients accused of these types of crimes.

For example, in a 2019 Placer County criminal drug case, the Law Offices of David D. Fischer and the other attorneys representing the co-defendants were able to convince the prosecutor to dismiss the case by carefully reviewing the recordings of the purported drug deal and uncovering the identity of the confidential informant. That led to uncovering other harmful information about the prosecutor’s case, that led to a dismissal.

Firearm Offenses

Many firearms offenses involve the unlawful receipt, possession, and transportation of firearms and assault weapons. Many of these cases involve vehicle stops, confidential informants, and search and seizure issues. My office has experience defending clients accused of firearms offenses, and litigating search and seizure motions related to unlawful firearm possession.

Three Strikes / Violence / Gang / Homicide Offenses

Although many changes have been made to reduce the consequences of many criminal convictions, this category of crimes (three-strikes, violence, gang, homicides) can potentially result in life sentences. A thorough review of the police reports, use of defense investigation and experts, and legal research and writing are critical in defending clients accused of these types of crimes. Our office has been defending clients accused of serious crimes since 2003.
