At The Law Offices of Steven K Bloom, we understand the gravity of your situation and are committed to providing aggressive and effective representation for clients facing charges of violent crimes in Orange County and beyond.

Violent crimes are among the most serious offenses under California law, and carry severe penalties upon conviction. If you’ve been charged with a violent crime, it’s important to understand the potential sentencing options and how they may impact your life.

Possible Sentencing Options for Violent Crimes

The sentencing options for violent crimes in California vary depending on the specific offense and the circumstances surrounding it. Some common penalties for violent crimes include:

Imprisonment: If convicted of a violent crime, you may be sentenced to serve time in state prison. The length of your sentence will depend on the severity of the offense, your criminal history, and other factors.

Fines: A conviction for a violent crime may result in fines and restitution to the victim.

Probation: In some cases, a judge may choose to sentence a defendant to probation instead of imprisonment. Probation may include requirements such as community service, regular check-ins with a probation officer, and drug or alcohol testing.

Restitution: If convicted of a violent crime, you may be ordered to pay restitution to the victim to compensate for any damages or losses they suffered as a result of the offense.

Why a Good Attorney is So Important

When facing charges for a violent crime, the stakes are high, and the consequences of a conviction can be life-changing. That’s why it’s essential to have an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side who can fight for your rights and your freedom.

A skilled attorney can work to:

Investigate the case: Your attorney can thoroughly investigate the evidence against you, including witness statements, police reports, and physical evidence, to uncover any weaknesses in the prosecution’s case.

Challenge the evidence: Your attorney can challenge the admissibility of any evidence that was obtained illegally or in violation of your rights, and may also seek to have certain evidence suppressed or excluded from trial.

Negotiate with the prosecution: Your attorney can negotiate with the prosecution on your behalf to seek reduced charges or a plea bargain that minimizes the potential penalties you face.

Represent you in court: If your case goes to trial, your attorney can represent you in court, presenting a strong and effective defense on your behalf.

At The Law Offices of Steven K Bloom, we are dedicated to protecting the rights and freedoms of our clients who are facing charges for violent crimes. Our team has the experience, knowledge, and skills to provide the aggressive representation you need to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.

Client Testimonials

I am So Happy that I hired Attorney, Steve Bloom, to help me with my DUI case. He is Very Professional, Hard working and Extremely Knowledgeable & Very Attention to details. I was scared and worried and he immediately made me feel at ease. Then, over the next number of months, he lived up to everything he said to me over the phone and at our initial consultation. He was able to get many allegations dismissed in court and even won my DMV Hearing, which saved me from having my licensed suspended for 1 year! He is worth every penny I paid him and more. I will give him 5 plus Stars, I definitely will refer anyone who need his help to him .

I’m Monica and I recently hired Steven to work on my case. I did my research and came to the conclusion that he’s the best attorney in Orange County. He has 20 years of experience and is well known online and in person as the best attorney in Orange County. He worked with me and helped with words of advice and calming personality. He always communicated with me and gave me all the details of my case. He’s literally the best attorney from my experience. I had VERY positive results with my case and I would definitely return to Steven if I need help. I highly recommend him he’s helpful, knowledgeable, experienced, communicative, and works hard to really help people. Highly recommend him. Thank you Steven.

I found Steven Bloom on Avvo. I had never needed an attorney so I did not know what I was supposed to be looking for. After calling other attorneys and getting different quotes I almost went with the cheapest but then I called Steven and I'm glad I did. He was so reassuring and walked me through the process. He made sure I got what I asked for and was even able to check with his colleague that my case wouldn't interfere with other legal things I have going on. I will definitely recommend him to friends and family, Thank you Steven!
Steve went above and beyond in helping me resolve a petty theft case. For someone who had never had any run-ins with the law before, the entire process of going to court and retaining an attorney was all new and very frightening. I researched several different attorneys before settling on Steve because he was the only one who really acknowledged my concerns when I described my case to him over the phone. During the consultation, he laid out his game plan and explained exactly how he would tackle my case, and hearing him say that it was very likely that he could resolve was like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. In the end, he was able to get my case dismissed with NO guilty plea, and thus, no conviction on my record. I would highly, highly recommend him to anyone in the OC area looking for a defense attorney, whatever your situation. He is incredibly competent and has so much professional experience, but above all that, his kindness and authenticity are the real deal. He really listens to you and makes you feel at ease despite everything. I can't recommend him enough and I'm so glad I retained him for my case. Thank you so much, Steve.

Steve helped me and my family resolve a DUI case involving several serious charges. Before hiring him, we spoke to a family friend in the Orange County Sheriff's Department who recommended that we prioritize looking for a lawyer who is not only well established in OC but also has extensive experience with the court handling our case, North Justice Court. After interviewing several lawyers around the area, Steve became the clear choice as he is extremely knowledgable about the various judges, prosecutors, and clerks at North Justice and also has many personal connections with those people. The case itself was not easy and a very difficult and exasperating process, but Steve had a very well thought out game plan and was able to execute it while doing his best to keep us reassured the entire way. We are happy with the results that included reduced charges and a significant reduction in fines.

His honesty and beyond fair price was the first reason I hired Steven K Bloom. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. I quickly realized that he is well known and respected in the Orange County Court System. He handled my case very professionally, and he kept me feeling confident through my entire case. At the end of my case all charges against me were dropped. I feel confident in saying, if I had hired some other attorney, the results would not have been the same. He went above and beyond the call of duty for me. If you want the best defense that you can possibly have, I highly recommend Steven K Bloom. Thank you again Steve, I am very grateful for your services
