About Me

Gary Tamkin has represented thousands of men and women who were charged with misdemeanors and felonies in general sessions court and criminal court.  In the majority of cases, he has successfully negotiated favorable plea settlements at the early stages of criminal proceedings.  Mr. Tamkin finds ways to get charges reduced, and in many instances, to get criminal charges retired or dismissed, and expunged from his clients’ records.

Gary Tamkin fights for his clients.  If a favorable plea settlement is not offered to his clients, he has the courage to take the case to trial.  And he knows how to win!
