Practice Areas

The aggressive Orange County criminal defense attorneys and lawyers at Coffey & Coffey understand the time and attention it takes to successfully represent a client who has been charged with a misdemeanor or felony criminal offense. The areas of practice our attorneys handle include, but are not limited to, the following:

Areas Of Practice

Assault and Battery

An assault and battery conviction can easily result in a state prison or county jail sentence, as well as a number of other penalties. An Orange County criminal defense attorney, however, can provide the legal representation that is needed in order to have charges dropped or secure an acquittal.

Bench Warrants

Having a bench warrant out for your arrest is frightening, at the very least. If you do not get this issue addressed immediately with the help of an attorney, it can turn a simple traffic stop into a trip to jail. A bench warrant authorizes the immediate arrest of an individual, and this can occur anytime, anyplace.

Domestic Violence

Domestic violence is a serious accusation that will most likely result in criminal charges. California domestic violence cases are particularly tricky because it is not always the alleged victim’s choice of whether to press charges.

DUI Defense

There are hundreds of lawyers and attorneys who handle DUI (driving under the influence) cases in Orange County. When sifting through all the different websites and information that these attorneys provide, how can one make the right decision?


Having one’s criminal record cleared or sealed can bring peace of mind. It will also mean that an individual will be able to honestly say “no” when asked whether they have a criminal record – on job applications, in interviews and for other reasons.

Murder / Manslaughter

Being charged with murder or manslaughter is a serious situation to find oneself in. With the proper representation by an aggressive Orange County criminal defense lawyer, however, even an individual facing first degree murder charges may be able to face a bright future, free from a conviction and imprisonment.

Probation Violations

An individual accused of violating probation faces difficult times ahead. As a person who has already been convicted for a criminal act, an individual facing probation violation charges also may face prejudice from law enforcement and the prosecuting attorney regarding their guilt.

Restraining Orders

Restraining orders are often issued in cases of domestic violence, harassment and stalking. If you have been served a restraining order, you may be prohibited from coming into contact with the alleged victim – meaning you cannot approach their home or place of employment. You may also be required to move out of your home, if you share it with the victim, even if you are paying the rent or mortgage.

Sex Crimes

Sex offender registration is just one of the many penalties imposed when an individual is convicted of a sex crime or sexual offense in California. Registering as a sex offender means that an individual will need to register their address and information at least once a year, may not be allowed to work with or around children, cannot obtain certain professional licenses and cannot live near schools or playgrounds.

Theft Crimes

The term “theft crime” can encompass a large number of criminal offenses, all of which may be serious and result in severe penalties. The Orange County theft crime defense attorneys and lawyers at Coffey & Coffey handle all types of theft crime cases throughout Westminster, Fullerton, Laguna Niguel, Newport Beach and Santa Ana.

Traffic Offenses

From a speeding ticket to DUI to vehicular manslaughter, traffic offenses can be serious charges which require the special attention and skill of an Orange County criminal defense lawyer. With a strong foundation of experience and knowledge, and the aggressive techniques that make a difference in and out of court, the Orange County criminal attorneys and lawyers at Orange County Criminal Attorney.
