Redding Criminal Lawyer Serving Shasta, Butte, and all Other Northern California Courts
How Can A California Crime Conviction Affect Your Future?
With his office in Redding, criminal lawyer Joseph Tully and team defend cases all over Northern California. Sheriffs, prosecutors, and courts take alleged criminal activity very seriously. This is reflected in California's mandatory sentencing laws, gun and gang enhancements, and California's Three Strikes Law. As a result, being convicted of a felony like marijuana charges, drug crimes, domestic violence, murder, manslaughter, firearm offenses, burglary, theft, assault, sex offenses, or white collar charges in the state of California could lead to substantial penalties. This includes fines, prison sentences, and a damaging criminal record.
False Accusations, Misunderstood Self Defense…Innocent People are Charged too Often
But with the intense war on crime comes the accusation of innocent people. Sheriff deputies, Police officers and law enforcement are working for the prosecution, helping to build a case against you from the very first encounter. As a result, false accusations, acts of self-defense, accidents and misidentification are only a handful of reasons innocent people are charged with criminal activity. Prominent Redding criminal lawyer Joseph Tully will fight for your rights.
Whether you are innocent of the charges, found yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time, or are guilty and want the least possible penalty, time is of the essence. However, once you have been questioned regarding an investigation, or arrested for a criminal offense, you must immediately begin to devise a defense strategy to protect your rights and preserve your future.

His diligence and meticulous preparation has resulted in scores of great outcomes for cases others declared impossible. Therefore, Joseph Tully has an extraordinary record of victories in high profile cannabis trials from Redding to Contra Costa County and a precedent-setting win in a hotly contested Stand Your Ground murder trial.
