Our representation of clients began with the successful trial defense of multiple private and public defender cases in 2002. Since that time we have defended multiple clients in First and Second Degree Felony cases as well as Misdemeanor and DUI Representation.
Specialized Criminal Practice
First, Second Degree Felony and Misdemeanor Charges
Among the most serious of charges, First and Second Degree charges require immediate attention and experienced legal counseling. We demonstrate our experience and attention to detail in protecting your constitutional rights when facing the most serious of charges in State or Federal Court. We also represent clients facing Misdemeanor charges with the utmost professionalism and expertise.
Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
We represent clients in Driving Under the Influence (DUI) cases in most Bay Area Counties. Our fee arrangement for most DUI cases is on a fixed (or flat) fee basis, rather than hourly. We also handle DMV administrative hearings when appropriate. We handle complex cases and have arranged plea agreements while not hesitating to take cases to trial when an acceptable plea agreement cannot be reached.
The US Constitution limits the exercise of Governmental powers. When an arm of Government oversteps its authority and criminal charges are brought against a citizen as a result, the rights of all citizens are diminished. In the case of the 4th Amendment's protection against warrantless searches, the Exclusionary Rule serves to keep illegally obtained evidence out of court. We have successfully obtained dismissal of charges against our clients by preparing and filing Motions to Suppress. While defending your rights we demonstrate an abiding determination in protecting your rights when criminal prosecution is unjust and unwarranted
