Law Offices of John C. Lemon, APC is a firm dedicated to defending the accused in serious and sophisticated cases in federal and California trial courts and in federal appellate courts. The firm has successfully represented numerous clients in significant and complex cases including capital murder, attempted murder, narcotics trafficking, marijuana cultivation, alien smuggling, racketeering (RICO), and "white collar" crime (including SEC investigations).
Our clients come from all walks of life. The firm has recently represented a hedge fund manager charged with committing fraud resulting in over $35 million in losses, a health care provider charged with unlawfully dispensing prescription drugs over the internet, and the head of an international telecommunications company charged with criminal contempt. Other clients include allegedly high-ranking members of putative racketeering and narcotics trafficking organizations.
But the firm also represents clients charged with less serious offenses, including simple drug possession, DUI, domestic violence, and other misdemeanors. Regardless of the type of case - or whether it is resolved by jury trial, dismissal, plea bargain, appeal, or by avoiding charges altogether - the firm is committed to providing an aggressive, intelligent, and focused criminal defense, the touchstones of which are thorough preparation and sound judgment.
