Our Areas of Expertise

DUI
If you have been charged with driving under the influence for the first time, gaining an understanding of the DUI process is an excellent way to start becoming proactive about your situation. Whether this is your first time or you have multiple DUIs, your safest answer is an experienced attorney. You have certain rights when you are stopped by police which includes how breath and blood tests are administered.

Sex Crimes
A person convicted of a sex crime is considered a "sex offender" and is required to be listed on state and federal sex offender registries. This can seriously affect many aspects of your life. Internet sex crimes can have the same consequences.

Drug Crimes
Drug crimes can include the possession, sales and/or distribution of illegal substances. The substances include illegal drugs such as marijuana, cocaine and heroin; but, prescription medications can also fall under this category.

Internet Crimes
Most people are familiar with the crime of "hacking" (gaining access to a computer illegally), but there is a very broad range of crimes that can be committed on the internet. Moreover, the internet world is relatively new and the laws governing it are constantly changing and evolving.

Federal Crimes
Federal laws and state laws are enforced under federal courts and state courts. A California attorney is not necessarily knowledgeable and experienced in trying federal court cases. If you have been charged with a federal crime, you want to make sure the lawyer you retain is competent in litigating federal cases.

Firearm Crimes
Under the United States Constitution, all citizens have the right to bear arms. It is not as simple as that sounds when it comes to firearms. There are many other factors that come to play regarding the laws concerning the possession and use of firearms.

Juvenile Crimes
The last thing a parent wants for their child is for a mistake made in youth to hinder them into adulthood. With the expertise of a knowledgeable attorney, it is often possible to keep a youth's record expunged of earlier errors in judgment.

Theft Crimes
Theft crimes involve the taking of money or property which doesn't belong to you. Depending upon the value of the thing taken, the severity of the crime will be either a misdemeanor or felony. The penalties vary for both, but either will result in complications for your future.

Violent Crimes
Conviction of a violent crime will most likely result in a severe penalty. If you have been charged with domestic violence, murder, assault, battery or any other violent crime you should urgently seek the counsel of an experienced criminal defense lawyer.

White Collar Crimes
Although "white collar crimes" can cover a broad range of crimes, they normally would involve a crime committed by use of deceit with the motivation of financial gain. Scams and frauds fall under this category as do insurance fraud, embezzlement, tax evasion and money laundering.

Child Abuse
The various crimes that fall under the category of child abuse carry severe judgments under California law. If you have been charged with child abuse, you need someone in your corner, fighting for you to ensure your rights are protected.

Search and Seizure
The 4th Amendment of the United States Constitution gives us certain basic rights against state or federal police officers accessing our homes, businesses, papers and effects to seize evidence of a suspected crime. There are, however, circumstances where this is allowed under the law.

What is "The Criminal Process"?
There is a step-by-step process laid out according to law that must be followed when someone is suspected of a committing crime. At each step of the process, whether you are guilty of a crime or not, you are covered by certain rights and protections. A criminal defense attorney will ensure that your rights were not violated at any step and, if they were, will aggressively fight on your behalf to have the charges dropped if possible.

What are your rights?
The purpose of law is to protect the rights of those individuals living under that law. Laws were also written to protect people from the improper enforcement of law and false accusation of crime. A good criminal defense attorney exists to ensure your rights, when charged with a crime, are protected and you receive the full benefits of the law.
