Catherine A. Schwartz brings more than 20 years of experience to your side as you attempt to avoid conviction for murder, and the harsh punishments that await — a lengthy prison term (25 years to life under California's "three-strikes" law), substantial fines, a criminal record, separation from loved ones, damage to reputation and a host of other negative impacts.
