California Prop 47 Resistance Attorney

If you are facing any of the charges or have been convicted of them in the past, you may be eligible for Prop 47 re-sentencing.

What is Proposition 47?

The new law allows a number of felony charges to be eligible for reduction to misdemeanors. A reduction to a misdemeanor reduces the maximum jail time allowable for cases to be reduced from approximately 3 years in state prison to 6 months to a year in the county jail.

What if I Have Priors in Los Angeles?

You can still get a reduction with prop 47, but there are some exceptions:

  1. If you’re a registered sex offender under PC 290.

  2. If you’ve been convicted of any of the several serious felonies listed below:

California prop 47 Resentencing

On November 4, 2014, Californians voted overwhelmingly in favor of amending the California Penal Code and downgrading from felonies to misdemeanors and certain nonviolent drug and property crimes. This means that thousands of individuals who were previously convicted of these offenses now have access to substantial relief.

Questions To Ask When Choosing Your Criminal Defense Attorney

Undertaken in the wake of public safety realignment in 2011, Proposition 47 reduced the penalties for certain lower-level drug and property offenses and represented a further step in prioritizing prison and jail space for higher-level offenders.

Individuals who have completed their sentences for any of the qualifying crimes listed above, and who do not have any disqualifying priors, may petition the superior court in which they were sentenced to have their felony convictions converted to misdemeanors

The provisions of Prop 47 are fully retroactive, setting forth a mechanism of relief for defendants who are currently in jail serving sentences or who have already completed their sentences. Under Proposition 47, certain non-serious and non- violent crimes are reduced from felonies to misdemeanors.

I was faced with a case that never in my life I’d imagine to be dealing with that could’ve had detrimental effects on my life and career ending. Kareem was the best defense I had to get my life back together. From start to finish Kareem was very attentive, informative and determined to help get this fixed and he did! The case was never filed! Thank you!

I was arrested and was facing 2 felonies in October and spent some time sitting in county jail. After calling tens of lawyers to help I immediately knew Kareem would provide the help I was looking for. He walked me through the entire court process and was very reassuring that I had nothing to worry about. It is a great feeling when you have a confident lawyer behind you. Kareem managed to get my case dismissed and I have no charges on my record now. I don’t think I would have this result if it weren’t for his help. I would recommend him to anyone. He knows what he’s doing and he is the man for the job.

Before hiring Kareem Law I made the mistake of listening to some ads for personal injury attorneys on the radio. I did not know what to expect since this was my first time needing to hire an attorney. The first office never returned my calls and never connected me with an attorney. I thought attorneys wanted to help their clients not treat them like dirt. I found Kareem's office after a family member told me of an attorney who did excellent work on his personal injury case.From the first call with Kareem he created a strong relationship with me where I felt appreciated and heard. Mr. Ramadan was always available when I needed answers and did a fabulous job settling my case.

I was very fortunate to have had Kareem as my attorney. From our very first conversation, I could tell he was very knowledgeable and experienced. His empathy and care for my situation, were encouraging and made me feel safe. Kareem was very personable, reachable, and communicated clearly. Kareem put a lot of effort to get the case dismissed and achieve a complete resolution without the additional stress of a trial. I am beyond grateful to him!

Never in my life, did I think I would need a criminal defense attorney. A close family member committed a federal crime and suddenly I was searching for a criminal defense attorney. I submitted an inquiry to all lawyers in the Upland area and I am so thankful that Attorney Kareem was quick to reply on a Sunday afternoon!The next day, he was already doing a jail visit with my family member. The following day, we were meeting and discussing the case in his office. Right from the beginning,Kareem expressed his care and compassion for us and my incarcerated family member. He also made us feel very comfortable telling us a personal story of his that made him appreciate nurses, which my mom and I are! This life journey of his, made us feel that he knows the value of life and our family member would be in excellent hands.Kareem was always available to answer all our questions. If you call him or text him, he will always respond right away or within a few hours. This was an extremely difficult time in our lives and Kareem was always there to ease our minds. When trying to find an attorney who is going to save your life or a close family members, you have to fully trust your lawyer and Kareem is that man. He strongly advocated for my family member and got him released from jail with a mental health diversion. This was the goal from the beginning and we could not be more thankful to Attorney Kareem for the outcome.
