San Diego Perjury Lawyers
Perjury is a crime that involves concealing information or lying while under oath. Though this crime is often associated with the courtroom, it can encompass a broad variety of situations where someone intentionally obscures the truth in a legal matter.
Examples of perjury include:
- Providing false testimony in court
- Lying on a driver's license application
- Authenticating a forged document
- Giving false information on your tax returns
In California, this charge can lead to as much as 4 years in state prison. Because of the serious risk associated with conviction, you should not face your charges without legal counsel. Work with a skilled San Diego criminal defense attorney to ensure that you have the best chances against your charges.

Though charges of lying under oath can be frightening, the outcome of these cases is hardly a foregone conclusion. Before someone can be found guilty of perjury, prosecution must prove that they intentionally provided inaccurate information under oath. Because every situation is unique, there may be many opportunities to defend a client's honor in a given case.
If we can prove that you misunderstood a question or did not remember the circumstances about which you were testifying, we may be able to help you secure a favorable outcome to their case. Likewise, if we can prove that you were not under oath during the event in question, we may be able to get your case dismissed.
