Being charged with a crime or the subject of a government investigation can be a terrifying experience. A conviction can levy huge fines, land you in prison, and stigmatize you socially in your family and community. In addition, a criminal conviction may prevent you from finding quality employment, from voting, and may even get you deported from the United States. Fortunately you do not have to face this ordeal alone. When facing any criminal charge the success or failure of your defense will depend first and foremost on retaining the services of an experienced California attorney to represent you in court.

Building Your Defense
Our job is to level the playing field, protect your rights, and ensure you have a clear understanding of the laws and procedures affecting your case in California.
We represent individuals from every walk of life in a range of criminal charges. Our team of attorneys understands the justice process and has the skills necessary to safeguard your rights. If you’re accused of a crime in California, you need an attorney with proven courtroom experience fighting for you. For any criminal case the prosecution is required to prove that the defendant committed the crime beyond a reasonable doubt. This means they must convince the jury that there can be no plausible scenario other than the one they present. Creating that doubt is the primary objective of the defense attorney and this is done in a variety of ways. For example:
- Cross-examination of the prosecution’s witnesses to bring forth inconsistencies and damage their credibility.
- Motions to exclude the evidence and testimony brought against you.
- Presentation of witnesses and evidence to support your innocence.
- Skilled advocacy before the Judge and Jury.
