Defending Criminal Cases in San Diego, California

We are energetic in our approach to defending criminal charges, and committed to our clients' defense. We will fight on every front, from the moment of the arrest. Never answer questions or attend a hearing without our attorney there to protect you. Our firm defends clients charged with any criminal offenses, whether on a state or federal level.

A criminal defense attorney at our law firm can help with virtually any phase of a case for an adult or juvenile offender, from the initial arrest or bench warrant all the way through to an appeal of an unfavorable verdict or sentence. Our criminal defense team is highly qualified to fight for the defense of even the most serious of criminal offenses. Our first order of business is to fully review every piece of evidence that has been gathered against you and to identify any violations of rights that may have taken place. If law enforcement failed to follow proper procedure, the evidence will not be allowed in court. No evidence means no case and those who have had their constitutional right violated often have their cases dismissed. Seeking other evidence that could exonerate you or increase the reasonable doubt that you are the guilty party is critical; defense actions must begin at once.

A criminal offense of domestic abuse involves abuse that is directed to someone with whom the defendant shares a personal relationship. This could be a spouse, a housemate, family member or even someone who the defendant is dating. Due to the heavily stigmatized nature of this criminal offense, it is also one of the most heavily penalized. Beyond this, even having the existence of the blemish on your criminal record could prove to be difficult in the long run – leaving you suffering in almost every way imaginable, from trying to get a loan to attempting to find new employment. For this reason, we encourage you to consult with a defense lawyer as soon as possible. We know just how daunting this can be and are fully prepared to to help clients defend their legal rights.

The better the presentation, the more compellingly and convincingly the case is presented makes a difference to juries. Knowledge of criminal law is not enough in serious crime cases - you need a powerful defense lawyer that knows how to bring a case to a jury and affect the outcome through their presentation.

We strongly urge you to contact our firm at once if accused of a crime. Your future can be largely predicted by the attorney you choose to represent you. We will fight relentlessly on your behalf. Contact a San Diego criminal attorney from our firm to aggressively defend your case in court.
