David Lehr - Criminal Defense Attorney Ventura County - A B C s

David Lehr helps you understand the basics of the Lawyer Client relationship.

DAVID LEHR   SHARES THE A B C s of Criminal Defense


What Can David Lehr the Criminal Defense Attorney Do For You?
We get asked this question by many people who are trying to choose between hiring private counsel and using a public defender. The answer depends on the quality of the attorney, whether a private attorney or a free public defender. An excellent public defender is always a better choice than a poorly trained private attorney. At David Lehr Law, we only focus on criminal defense. This focus allows us to learn about the changes in California’s Criminal Code as it happens. We strive to be the very best, and our hope is that at the end of your case, you will agree that we have achieved a great result in your case.
So what can we do for you and your case? The ABCs of Criminal Defense.

In every single case we can Assist you through the court process. We will Answer every question that you Ask us and get you Answers if we do not know them. Many of our clients are going through the criminal justice system for the first time and it can be scary, even down-right terrifying. In some cases, we are unable to obtain a better outcome because the law has minimum mandatory sentences. In these situations, we will help you get through your case, keeping you fully Aware of what is going to happen.

In many cases, we can help you obtain a Better outcome. A Better outcome is not a complete victory. A Better outcome may be a reduction in the level of charge that you are facing. For example, a reduction of your charge from a felony to a misdemeanor or a strike charge to a non-strike charge. A Better outcome may be a reduction of custody time, or the fine, or your probation time. Finally, a Better outcome in your case may be a reduction in a driver’s license suspension time (not every charge has an effect on your driver’s license).
We cannot guarantee the outcome of any case. However, in many cases we can help you obtain some type of Better outcome. Don’t let any attorney ever promise you an outcome, and if they do, make sure they put it in writing.

Finally, in some cases, a Complete victory is possible. This type of Complete win is rare. Complete victories most often come about when a victim of a violent crime identifies the wrong person. False identifications still happen today, but they have become less frequent because of better investigatory techniques like DNA. Other causes of a Complete victory in your case may come when the police make a major mistake in handling the evidence. Finally, Complete victories happen when the “victim” has a motive to make a false allegation. These false allegations come about most often when a family member accuses another of some violent crime.
If you are innocent of the charges that you are facing, please contact David Lehr Law so that we can help you protect your record. However, remember that we cannot guarantee the outcome of any case. Complete dismissals are rare in our justice system, even with the best attorney. Don’t let any attorney promise you an outcome, and if they do, make sure they put it in writing.

David M. Lehr, Esq., is a defense attorney whose credentials include 13 years of experience with the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office. As a practitioner in the field of Criminal Law, Attorney Lehr has had the opportunity to exercise his legal talents both as a prosecutor and an advocate for offenders accused of criminal misdemeanor and felony charges.

At the onset of his career, Lehr’s focus and aplomb were implemented in pursuits of justice on the behalf of Ventura County and the State of California. During his tenure as a prosecuting attorney, Lehr was able to develop and demonstrate his substantial courtroom skills and work his way from being the new Deputy District Attorney in 1993 to being recognized as the Outstanding Team Prosecutor of 2006. During his prosecutorial career, Mr. Lehr was responsible for successfully bringing ninety-nine jury trials to verdict, and in 2006 alone, he separately resolved more than 1,000 felony cases without going to trial.

By the end of his tenancy with the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Lehr had determined that his skills might be better put to use by practicing criminal defense. The insights and experience that he had gained through his work as a prosecuting attorney provided him with an advantageous perspective of the law and the strategies utilized to bring suspected criminals to justice. And his advantageous perspective could be utilized as an invaluable asset to help accused offenders face, fight and, in some cases, even defeat the charges being leveled against them.
Dedicated, steadfast and well-versed with the intricacies of legal procedure, Attorney Lehr has received several acclamations and commendations for his work:
  • 1996 Mothers Against Drunk Drivers Prosecutor of the Year
  • 1998 Victims’ Rights Week Prosecutor of the Year
  • 2006 Senior Prosecutor – Outstanding Team of the Year (Ventura County DA’s Office)

  • 1993 California State Bar #165490
  • 1998 – 2006 Criminal Justice Attorney’s Association of Ventura County, Treasurer
  • 1998 – 2006 Ventura County Prosecutor’s Association, Treasurer
  • 2006 – Present Ventura County Inns of Court Member, Board of Directors
