There are many issues that arise after someone has pled, or been found guilty in court, that require an experienced attorney. Many times people are not able to meet the previous orders of the court and require sentence modifications or extensions in time for them to fulfill their obligations. It is always better to retain an seasoned criminal defense attorney, especially in conservative Orange County, to go in for you to request sentence modifications or extensions. Most people are not able to successfully articulate what has caused them not to meet their obligations, or why they need a modification, and quite often make matters worse on themselves by angering a Judge who can find you in violation of probation and increase your punishment.
An outstanding post conviction lawyer like Steven K. Bloom, knows each and every Judge in Orange County. In order to obtain your post conviction request, you have to know your audience and how to persuade them. Many Judges dislike people making excuses and if you come across like you are just making excuses, it will not go well with the Judge. Other Judges are more compassionate but have other strong views that you want to avoid. Attorney Steven Bloom knows what motivates each Judge and know what, and what not, to say to get the results you wish to achieve on your post conviction issue.
