Whereas the San Diego Police has designated units responsible for automobile thefts, canine searches, child abuse, homicides, domestic violence, elder and dependent abuse, restraining orders, financial crimes, gangs, harbor patrol, narcotics, and arson. A Mission Valley Criminal Defense Attorney must maintain good terms with the San Diego Police and neighborhood Western Division in order to be able to gain insight into the police investigation of a client to better understand the evidence being reviewed and the potential charges his client could be facing. Mission Valley Criminal Defense Attorney Vik Monder has been working with both the San Diego Police and neighborhood Western Division for years. During this time, he has been able to establish a working relationship where he can reach out to lead detectives to inquire about their investigation and provide them with mitigation to be considered on the client’s behalf. In doing so, Attorney Vik Monder has successfully been able to get the recommended charges reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor or avoid charges from getting filed altogether. However, when the evidence stacked against his client does not allow for these alternatives, Attorney Vik Monder does not just accept what is in the police report. With a team of legal experts at his disposal, he relies on his private criminal investigator to go to the scene of the alleged crime, take pictures, talk to potential witnesses, secure video footage and serve subpoenas if necessary to obtain witness statements. All of the information discovered by the private criminal investigation will be analyzed by our legal team and used to negotiate the best outcome for your case with the Office of the San Diego City Attorney.
Office of the San Diego City Attorney
The Office of the San Diego City Attorney consists of four divisions, the Advisory Division, Criminal and Community Justice Divisions, Civil Litigation Division, and Special Projects and Operations Division. The Criminal Division is responsible for prosecuting criminal misdemeanors and infractions committed within the San Diego city limits. The type offenses that are prosecuted by the Office of the City Attorney are vandalism, resisting arrest, harassment, hate crimes, reckless driving, hit-and-runs, DUIs, vehicular manslaughter, drug possession, furnishing alcohol to minors, battery, sex crimes, prostitution, lewd acts in public, theft, identity theft, embezzlement, and credit card fraud. The Criminal Division is headed by Assistant City Attorney John Hemmerling and further divided into five distinct units. The Case Issuance Unit receives the criminal complaints filed by law enforcement agencies and is responsible for screening and reviewing the requests to file charges with the Office of the City Attorney. The Domestic Violence and Sex Crimes Unit oversees the prosecution of misdemeanor cases for domestic violence, stalking, sexual battery, child abuse, statutory rape and elder abuse. The General Trial Unit is solely responsible for processing, negotiating and trying all criminal cases to which defendants plead not guilty. The Office of the City Attorney assigns trial deputies to handle probation revocation hearings, restitution hearings, arraignments, trial setting hearings, and trying jury and bench trials. The special Prosecutions Unit is made up of senior prosecutors who are responsible for the prosecution of cases involving unlawful marijuana dispensaries, vehicular manslaughter, and high profile cases of protests and violent demonstrations. Lastly, the Appellate Unit provides legal research support to the General Trial Unit and is responsible for writing and arguing motions and writs at the pre-trial, trial, and post-trail stages in both misdemeanor and infraction cases. In reality, most criminal cases are actually settled out of court. That is why it is imperative that you hire a criminal defense attorney who knows the interworkings of the Office of the City Attorney. Mission Valley Criminal Defense Attorney has extensive experience successfully negotiating agreements for his clients by working directly with the Office of the San Diego City Attorney. Having forged a close working relationship with all five units in the Criminal Division, Attorney Vik Monder has earned the respect and trust from trial deputies, senior prosecutors and department heads alike.
