At our firm, we focus our practice on representing clients charged with state and federal crimes. This includes cases involving:

  • Drug offenses: Our attorneys are skilled at protecting the rights of those charged with drug crimes, including charges for possession, marijuana cultivation and prescription drug offenses.

  • Domestic violence: Accusations of spousal abuse or child abuse can have a lasting impact on your life. We can help protect your reputation and defend you from related criminal charges.
  • Drunk driving: We are skilled at helping clients who have been arrested for driving under the influence (DUI). This includes a thorough examination into whether the officer had probable cause to pull you over and whether field sobriety, breath and blood tests were properly administered.
  • White collar crime: White collar crime is a general term that encompasses a wide range of theft crimes, including embezzlement, fraud and identity theft. Our California criminal lawyers provide skilled advocacy for those charged with these types of crimes.
  • Sex offenses: From rape charges to child pornography, we assist those who are facing charges for all types of state and federal sex crimes.
  • Theft crimes: Our lawyers represent clients who have been arrested for theft crimes such as larceny, robbery, shoplifting and burglary.

As many criminal charges involve issues on both the state and federal levels, it is important that you seek legal counsel familiar with both. We also represent minors who have been charged with juvenile crimes.
