Criminal Defense Attorney
Aggressively Representing Clients
In Modesto and Throughout Stanislaus County
Being arrested and charged with a crime is undoubtedly a stressful experience, regardless of your level of involvement or history with the criminal justice system. Prosecutors in Stanislaus County have the overwhelming power of the government behind them, meaning they can dump seemingly endless resources into a case. As a defendant, you start off at a disadvantage. However, by working with an experienced Modesto criminal defense attorney, you can level the playing field. At the Law Office of Rebecka A. Monez, we are zealous in our representation of each and every client we serve. We take an individualized and collaborative approach to all of our cases, working closely with our clients, their families, and their community to develop a compelling defense to even the most serious charges.
Types of Cases We Handle
Attorney Rebecka A. Monez is an aggressive litigator whose passion is criminal law. She has extensive experience not only handling criminal cases, but litigating them in front of judges and juries. While our clients call upon us to represent them in all types of cases, below are some of the cases we handle most frequently.
While it may not seem like it initially, DUIs are some of the most complex criminal cases—at least when handled properly. This is because, in most DUI cases, the government plans on presenting chemical test result evidence indicating that our client was impaired at the time they were arrested. However, a skilled Modesto criminal defense lawyer knows not to accept these test results at face value because police officers and lab techs often make mistakes. Motions to suppress are also crucial in many DUI cases, as police officers often stop drivers without legal justification.
Sex offenses are one of the most serious types of criminal cases, especially those sex crimes involving minors. While these cases present incredibly high stakes, they also often proceed on very little physical evidence, which opens the door to a variety of defenses. For example, challenging the sufficiency of the government’s evidence and attacking the credibility of witnesses are both common defenses to sex crimes cases.
Although California is generally known as a progressive state, it still has one of the harshest sentencing laws in the country when it comes to violent offenses. Thus, it is imperative that anyone facing a violent crime in Modesto works with an attorney who understands what is at stake and is up to the challenge. At the Law Office of Rebecka A. Monez, we regularly represent clients in all types of violent crimes, including:
- Assault with a deadly weapon
In the wake of the 1980s gang crisis in Southern California, state lawmakers passed incredibly harsh gun laws. These laws—which are still on the books—not only punish people for the underlying gun crime, but also impose harsh “sentencing enhancements” which add years—or decades—to their sentences. However, these enhancements are meaningless if the judge never gets the chance to sentence you. At the Law Office of Rebecka A. Monez, that’s our goal.
If you have a conviction from years ago that is making it hard for you to get a job, get into school, or otherwise move on from your past, an expungement may be an option. If you get a conviction expunged, you legally do not need to disclose the conviction to an employer, effectively eliminating any effect it has on your career. In California, most misdemeanor convictions and some felony convictions are eligible for expungement upon successful completion of probation.

Words From Clients
Rebecka did what I didn't think was possible. I came in with zero confidence and just completely defeated. After meeting with Rebecka I felt much more hopeful. She truly is a professional and a great person. It felt as tho I was speaking with family the entire time. Thank you Rebecka for all you did.
Rebecka is AWESOME!! I knew the moment I spoke with her that she was in my corner and a true advocate. I have full confidence she does what’s best for her clients and hearing my case being dismissed was the best feeling in the world. A sense of relief that I got a part of my life back. Rebecka’s knowledge and understanding of the law is top notch.

RE: 1 Star Review from Mike Lasiter- Rebecka is my attorney - Mike Lasiter is the opposing party in my case. Lasiter lied and Rebecka proved that with cancelled checks from my bank. REBECKA is one of he most honest people I know - she will make you mad because she will say even the things you don’t want to hear, but it’s the truth. REBECKA is a rockstar - thank you REbecka for winning my case against Lying Lasiter. I appreciate you!!
