Orange County Trespassing Attorney


Need an attorney for a trespassing case in Irvine? Trespassing is when you enter another individual's home or property without the owner's permission or you refuse to leave another individual's land, home, or private property after being told to leave. In trespassing cases related to domestic violence, the charges usually pertain to individuals who refuse to leave a property. Not many people realize that refusing to leave a private property falls under trespassing. If you have been charged with trespassing, it is very important that you contact an Orange County criminal defense attorney without delay. The sooner you take legal action the more likely it will be that your charges get dropped or your punishments reduced.


Most individuals do not take trespassing charges as seriously as they should. California is different than other states in that trespassing can be filed as infractions, misdemeanors, or felonies. A felony trespassing charge brings with it heavy fines and prison time.

If convicted of a misdemeanor trespassing offense, individuals could face any of the following penalties:
  • A number of days in a county jail
  • Up to $1,000 in fines, probation
  • Community service
  • Restraining orders

Once convicted, offenders have to bear the burden of a criminal record. Having a criminal record will severely limit your chances of getting a good job, advancing your career, and qualifying for housing or bank loans.
