Our firm represents clients in a variety of criminal matters. Because we are a full service firm that encompasses a wide-range of legal expertise, our criminal law attorneys have this extra advantage to thoroughly and competently advise you, regardless of the type of criminal matter.
Whether an individual is facing investigation, arraignment, pre-trial and/or trial, probation and/or parole, restitution, or seeking to clear their record, our San Diego criminal law attorneys can help. It does not matter if you are accused of a first time DUI or a serious felony offense that might count as a second or third strike, retaining the services of a San Diego criminal defense attorney with experience and a proven record definitely matters. It is a well-known fact that the quality and talent of a defense attorney has a big impact on the outcome of the case.
Our criminal law attorneys include former prosecutors for the San Diego City Attorney’s Office and Riverside County District Attorney’s Office, as well as worked with the California Attorney General’s Criminal Appeals and Trials Division; while other members of our criminal law team include former Public Defenders and a current San Diego County Judge Pro Tem.
