San Diego & El Centro Criminal Defense Lawyer

As a California criminal defense attorney, I defend against a variety of charges, including, but not limited to:

Even if you have not yet been charged with a crime and are simply asked to speak with the police, as an experienced San Diego criminal defense attorney my best advice is to seek qualified legal counsel before you say a word. The sooner you seek competent legal counsel the more options you will have to protect your rights and successfully defend against the charges.

If you think you are going to be charged, there are things you can do proactively, such as seeking counseling, rehabilitation, investigation and using the resources available to improve your chances of mitigating a situation before the prosecution goes forward. A competent attorney will advise you on the best route to take to minimize any consequences and possibly keep you out of jail or minimize your jail exposure.

San Diego and El Centro Criminal Defense Attorney

Being charged with a criminal offense can be very intimidating and cause a great deal of fear and uncertainty for the accused and his or her family members. If convicted, there can be severe long-term consequences that can affect the rest of your life, such as the loss of employment or a professional license. An experienced lawyer can help you determine when it might be best to negotiate a plea bargain or prepare an aggressive defense against the charges in court.

San Diego and El Centro Juvenile Lawyer

Juvenile criminal convictions can also have negative, immediate and long-term consequences making it even more important to obtain competent, experienced legal representation as soon as possible. Juvenile courts place more emphasis on the offender using the resources available, such as counseling and drug or alcohol rehabilitation, to show the courts he or she is trying to prevent the likeliness of re-offending in the future.

The most important asset I have in any case is the information provided by the client. Trust is a necessary component in any client-attorney relationship and is essentially what moves the case forward. I believe in spending the necessary time with my clients to thoroughly understand their case and provide an honest evaluation of the likely outcome.
