Can I prune overgrown bushes and shrubs in new home, despite summer weather?

I'm pretty new to landscaping and gardening.

Everything I have read says to avoid pruning in the summer. However, I recently bought a home with very neglected shrubs. They look absolutely terrible. If I prune them now, will I destroy them?

Soil is clay and the offensive shrubs face West and get lots of direct sun.
