Accused of Rape in California?

If you or a loved one has been arrested or faces rape charges in California, the next move you make can literally mean the difference between freedom and prison. It can mean the difference between being able to live life on your terms and living under the watchful eye of law enforcement and the prison system. It can mean the difference between being having a successful career and having to admit to being a convicted felon on a job application. It can mean the difference between being engaged with your community and living under a constant cloud of suspicion and targeting by neighbors and strangers who go online to access addresses of registered sex offenders.

"Mr. Lewin is a life saver!! I was falsely accused of rape by a girl I'd gone on a couple of dates with and then never called. I don't have to explain how shocking and scary a rape charge can be. I met with a few other criminal attorneys. They rushed me through what felt like a cattle call meeting. They seemed more concerned about getting their retainer, than my well being. Then I found Mr. Lewin. He made me feel relieved and relaxed after our first in-person meeting. He was very patient and understanding of my situation and seemed to care. He took the time to listen to me and asked me a lot of questions about the dating relationship and the girl that made the accusations. He then explained the entire process going forward and realistically what to expect. Immediately he got his investigator to start looking into the accuser. Well it turned out she had made other accusations and had a criminal history herself. Mr. Lewin took that information to the district attorney and got my case DISMISSED!! I cannot tell you how much I owe Mr. Lewin. He saved me from losing my career, my family, and my reputation. I cannot recommend Mr. Lewin enough. Do yourself a favor and at least call him before deciding on an attorney. Trust me, they're not all the same!"
