Criminal Defense

A criminal charge or conviction can negatively change your life faster than most anything else the government can do to you. You can lose your driver's license, lose your job, or find yourself in jail.

You need an attorney who knows the law and how to advise you on your next move. Don't do this alone.

The Deputy District Attorney (DA), the Probation Officer, the Judge, or the DMV are not in your corner; they are not your friend; and they are not on your side. They are working for a system that does not put you first.

It is critical that you have an attorney who is looking out for you and only you. Without a skilled attorney, you aren't going to know if you are being given a fair shake in this system. You need someone by your side to give you the advice you need to make an informed decision.
