Criminal Defense Attorney in Sacramento, California
Criminal Law Experience
Param S. Pabla has been practicing criminal law for over 11 years. He graduated from law school and passed the bar in 2004, and started his own practice in January 2005.
Interest in Criminal Defense
Growing up, Mr. Pabla enjoyed watching a number of television shows that focused on crime and courtroom drama. As he grew older, he was able to witness how the actual justice system worked through the experiences of family members and friends.
Even before he began law school, Pabla knew he wanted to try to help people. While in law school, he was able to intern at the public defender’s office. This allowed him his first look at the defense side of criminal law.
As he handled more and more cases, patterns began to develop. He realized that some people were not as knowledgeable as others, and lacked understanding of the legal system. He realized that these are the people that he wanted to help, the ones who are facing prosecution from the government.
Pabla became a lawyer to help people. He feels that many who are facing criminal charges are the ones who need the most help. In their most critical time they need the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney because their liberty is at stake, and sometimes — in a worst case scenario — their life.
The Rewards of Being a Criminal Defense Lawyer
Mr. Pabla is proud to be able to help people navigate through the criminal justice system and ultimately get a resolution that makes them happy. He gets to know every client, and celebrates with them when they reach a suitable outcome.
The best scenario is when charges are dismissed, and that is always the ultimate goal. Of course, this does not always happen. In the end, though, he is able to make sure his clients understand what happened and why it happened, and know that all of their constitutional rights were protected and they were provided a vigorous defense.
It is rewarding knowing at the end of the day he and other defense attorneys provide some kind of a check on the entire system. There is the DA and a judge who are part of the government. Then, you have the one person who is being prosecuted, and the only person who can be their voice and advocate for them in the courtroom is their attorney.
Attorney Pabla always holds the government to their task of proving his client’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. He puts up an aggressive defense, and makes sure he has covered every possible base for the client. In the end, getting a “thank you” from his clients offers the biggest personal reward.
“Param was excellent in my court case of failure to stop at a stop sign. The officer could not see clearly because he was too far away. The officer insisted he could and said he had video but could not produce it at the trial. The officer then asked if he could suspend the trial to go get the video but the judge said he should have had plenty of time to get the video ready beforehand. Needless to say, the judge ruled in my favor and dismissed the case which enraged the officer. Pabla Param’s defense and cross examination skills were excellent and paramount in having the case dismissed. Highly recommended.”
“I am so happy with the service that I received from Param S. Pabla. Jarrett did a great job solving my legal issue and I can’t recommend him enough! He was able to do everything quickly, painlessly, and was ALWAYS available to talk when I needed him. If I ever need help again, I will definitely use him!”
My husband had a legal issue which would have resulted in a 10 day jail stay with probation to follow. We consulted Mr. Param Pabla and let me tell you how he worked for my husband:
1. No Jail Time
2. No probation
3. Case Dismissed!
Mr. Pabla is great negotiator! He negotiated that if my husband completed 30 hours of community service that not only will he not be on probation but the case WILL BE DISMISSED! He was always available if not by phone, then by email. Either way, he responded to our concerns expeditiously! Even though Mr. Pabla is a very busy attorney, he always made us feel like time was never an issue, although it was.
If you are looking for a lawyer who has compassion, consideration, loyalty and hard working, then Mr. Pabla is who you need. Let me just say this, be completely up front honest and truthful with him and he will work his best for you. We are very happy and most satisfied!
My husband and I needed to update everything -family trust, will, medical stuff. Param was really patient -answering all my questions -even when I asked them twice. He wanted to be sure I understood everything we were doing. All docs were sent to us so we could go through them on our own time before anything was finalized. I also liked when we were looking at medical stuff that he had a conversation with me about what I wanted and pointed out some things I didn’t think of.
Mr. Pabla represented me with my DUI case. He has excellent communication skills and always kept me informed. Mr. Pabla made sure I understood the process and my rights. He eased my mind through a very stressful situation. I highly recommend Mr. Pabla.
A very good lawyer for your traffic needs
Mr. Pabla represented me in traffic court for a speeding violation. He was at ease in the courtroom, conducted himself in a respectful manner and helped resolve the case. His representing me was a big relief for me.
My name is Roman Lutsenko and I had a pleasure to work with Param on my speeding ticket case. I had this ticket issued by West Sacramento PD. Then, I have decided to go to trial and argue this ticket because I was disagree that I was driving the speed that was stated in the ticket by the West Sacramento PD officer. I was referred by my Legal Shield membership to Param Pabla Law Office. I had a feeling that Param really cares about my case and explained me the whole situation that I will be facing with the trial. I really like this attorney because he was very professional and honest with me! He basically prepared me for different scenarios that I might be going through. The case was dismissed because the officer didn’t show up and I am very thankful to Param for the whole amount of work he has done on my case. I want to refer this attorney to all of my friends and relatives because he is a five star professional and integrity person!
Types of Criminal Defense Cases Handled by the Law Office of Param S. Pabla
While Mr. Pabla has served as the lawyer for a wide range of criminal defense cases, he most often works with clients charged with DUI. However, his experience office also covers cases such as:
Easing the Legal Process
Many people call Mr. Pabla shortly after the first time they have ever been arrested. They have never faced anything more serious than a simple traffic ticket. Some may have spent a day or two in jail before they were released. Clients often come terrified, and having no idea what is going to happen to them or how their lives will be impacted. They have a certain sense of embarrassment that they are going to have to tell their friends, families, spouses, and their employer.
Pabla explains the entire process personally to each client. Depending on the type of case, the client may not even have to appear in court. He will keep the client informed on what is happening with the case. In the end, the client is going to understand what is happening and why it is happening step by step. He ensures clients are informed every step of the way, even if they are not going to be happy with the process or the ultimate outcome.
Mr. Pabla will not sugarcoat the situation for the client. He will not give unrealistic expectations for any reason. He wants clients to understand their reality, and the be able to make decisions based on all of the information available. He feels that a client needs to know what the realistic expectations are, what could happen, and what options are available to minimize how it affects their life going forward.
Attorney Pabla Defends Client’s Rights
One of the things people often do not understand about criminal defense work is that it is a process. He will look at the charges and investigate the facts of the case, listen to the client’s story and see how it differs from what other witnesses have claimed, and look at the evidence collected by the DA to see how officers have painted the client. As a part of a thorough investigation, he considers the client’s background, mitigating factors, and why his client may be facing these charges.
Oftentimes, knowing what the client’s story is makes a big difference because that is one aspect of the story that the officers do not consider. That is the thing that the accusing witnesses do not understand and the DA’s do not understand. Mr. Pabla tries to understand what it was that the client may have been thinking — what was going through their mind — and then once he has that information together with evidence from the DA, he can then begin a more thorough investigation.
Defense attorney Pabla has access to a group of private investigators, and they routinely partner to investigate cases. He is confident in their abilities, and knows they will always be aggressive in their efforts to help his clients. They will investigate the scene, take pictures and interview witnesses, including those that the DA’s office may have missed. The results of this investigation are then presented to the DA and the judge, indicating a need to take a fresh look at the circumstances and consider another perspective in the case.
Why Choose The Law Office of Param S. Pabla
Attorney Pabla always looks out for his clients’ best interests, not his own. Some attorneys may try to have a persuasive effect on clients. They may advise a client to go to trial even though they know that the case is not strong enough to overcome the DA’s burden of proof. But if you go to trial, the attorney benefits because you have to pay for trial fees and he makes a lot more money. Lawyers who are motivated by self-interest cannot put your interests first.
Mr. Pabla has routinely advised clients — even those who are able and willing to go to trial — to avoid going to trial. If a trial is not in your best interest, he will not hesitate to tell you. Instead, he will suggest other ways of resolving the case that will save you money and perhaps get you a more agreeable outcome.
He believes in employing the honest approach at all times when dealing with clients. He is always going to explain all the rights and responsibilities you have, as well as all of the options you can choose from. Ultimately, you are going to get a straightforward answer, not the answer that will bring him more money. At the same time, you are going to get an aggressive defense, you are going to know that your attorney has your best interest in mind, and you will be confident that you have received sound legal advice. In every case, Defense attorney Pabla does the research necessary and used that as a basis for any recommendations that he makes.
