A former prosecutor committed to obtaining justice for you
I began my legal career as a prosecutor and have built a criminal defense law firm with over 25 years of legal experience. My experience as prosecutor means I am familiar with the criminal process. I know the inner workings of the local courts and the District Attorney's office, and I can anticipate the strategies prosecutors will use to try to convict you. My reputation in the legal community as a hard-working and tenacious trial attorney means I have earned the respect of judges and prosecutors. This excellent reputation allows me to provide you with the best legal defense possible in plea negotiations and at trial.
Experienced defending against all kinds of criminal charges and drug crime offenses
I have experience in defending clients against all kinds of criminal charges. As a Sacramento criminal attorney, I have successfully defended people like you accused of misdemeanors and felonies such as:
I can also provide representation for expungements and pardons, and for DMV administrative hearings.
How a criminal charge finds its best defense through a former prosecutor
Certain kinds of crimes require a highly skilled defense attorney. Particularly when a crime and the resulting charge makes headlines in the media, the pressure to get a conviction can weigh heavily on the prosecutor, serving as a great motivation for him or her. High-profile cases typically involve one or more of the following crimes:
For example, California Penal Code 13825—the California Gang, Crime, and Violence Prevention Program—strives to reduce crime in geographical areas that experience significant amounts of crimes attributable to gangs. This means that crimes and prevention of those crimes in those neighborhoods get special attention. This also means that sentencing can be enhanced if a crime is tied to gang affiliations, with up to five years additional incarceration for serious felonies and ten years additional punishment for violent felonies.
A skilled and knowledgeable defense from a former prosecutor can make the difference between prison and freedom.
