When you want Effective and Immediate Criminal Defense.


If you are under investigation, have been arrested or are charged with a crime, you need to understand the law, the legal system, and most important, your options. Decisions about whether to fight in court or attempt to negotiate a plea offer require accurate information and sound, experienced advice.

At Fountain & Hattersley, our Pasadena criminal defense Attorneys understand the law, the legal process, your options and what is at stake. We will take the time to properly investigate the charges and then use our background as prosecutors, and over 30 years’ experience, to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecution’s case, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of your case and any defenses that are available.

We will explain your options to you and give you our best advice based on many years of experience and more than 30 years of accumulated knowledge. We won’t sugarcoat the truth or our opinion. Clients actually need and want an honest and accurate evaluation of their case which we will give you.

California's Three Strikes Law

California has a three strikes law, which in general imposes a sentence of 25 years to life in prison after 3 convictions of either a serious or violent felony. So, when it comes to convictions for serious or violent offenses, you must consider this as a "three strikes and you're out" type of case. Even if you are facing a conviction for only a second serious or violent felony the consequences are still very grave. You must go to prison and the normal sentence for the crime will be doubled and you may have to serve 85% of your prison time.

Because of the three strikes law, if you are charged with a serious or violent offense and have two strikes against you, you should retain the services of an attorney who is familiar with California’s three strikes law and has experience handling such cases. We have extensive experience defending individuals who are risking a life sentence, including those charged with a third serious or violent offense and facing the California three strikes law.

Time is of Essence. You will be happy you contacted us.
