Types of Cases & Legal Concerns We Handle

  • Assault: Were you accused of attacking another person? An attorney can defend you by using other criminal defenses such as self-defense, unintentional behavior, establishing that no assault actually took place, or by using other effective defenses.

  • Driving Under the Influence: Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs is a serious offense. Our firm has represented more clients in Northern California in DUI cases than any other. We understand the complicated issues in alcohol and drug/DUI cases and are able to challenge the scientific issues involved in defending cases containing a breath, blood or urine test, or a refusal to take a test.

  • Drug Crimes: Drug crimes can be misdemeanors or felonies, and penalties can range from community service to decades in jail. If you are arrested for possession, manufacturing, cultivation, trafficking, or other aspects of a drug crime, our experienced drug attorneys can provide you with state-of the art drug defenses.

  • Pre-Arrest Investigations: Prior to an actual arrest you may be investigated by a law enforcement/police agency. We handle many pre-charge investigations and can help when you are being investigated for a crime. We can make certain that your rights are protected and that you make the correct decisions throughout the entire process. When we represent you in a pre-charge criminal investigation, we are the only people who will speak with the police, providing a legal shield between you and the investigating officers.

  • Probation Violations: If you have been accused of violating the terms of your probation, we can help. By retaining an experienced attorney, you provide yourself with the best chance to avoid further jail, probation violation consequences, etc.

  • Relief After Conviction: We have a great deal of experience in petitions for expungements or dismissal, Certificate of Rehabilitation applications, and traditional or direct pardons. Getting relief after a conviction can help you avoid many of the difficulties of having a criminal offense on your record.

  • Sentencing: We can work with the prosecution to reduce your sentence or negotiate a favorable plea bargain. With the right attorney, you may be able to avoid harsh penalties.

  • Theft Crimes: Theft crimes include robbery, shoplifting, grand theft auto, burglary, and other offenses that involve taking property without permission. We can help you fight these allegations using various defenses such as mistaken status of the property.

  • Violent Crimes: If you have been accused of a violent crime such as domestic violence, manslaughter, assault and battery, mayhem. or another violent crime, you need an aggressive and experienced criminal attorney on your side.

  • Warrants / Failure to Appear: If you fail to appear at any criminal court appearance, you may be subject to both serious penalties and an arrest warrant. We can defend you against these charges and warrants by having the warrants cancelled and assisting you in having your matter transferred back to court to defend the charges.
