As a Retired POLICE OFFICER, with 29 years experience as a Criminal Defense Attorney, I have been on BOTH SIDES!

My law enforcement training, background, and experience, has provided me with knowledge and expertise other attorneys CANNOT learn from simply "READING A LAW BOOK".

"I have arrested people, written crime reports, written arrest reports, testified in court, and worked with the District Attorney to prosecute people.  I AM NOW ON THE "OTHER SIDE"

We handle Drunk Driving, (Member of the California DUI Lawyers Association) Manslaughter, Domestic Violence, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Murder, Hit and Run, Drug offenses, Sex offenses, Assault, Battery, Terrorist Threats, Medical Marijuana cases, Misdemeanors, Felonies, Arson, Theft, Insurance Fraud, Violations of Probation, Firearm Offenses, Expungements and more.
