I am a passionate, caring defense attorney that has ALWAYS been interested in only one area of law-criminal defense and DUI defense. Prior to starting my own law practice, I worked for the County of Riverside as a Public Defender as well as for a private criminal appellate law firm and general practice firm in Los Angeles. I'm dedicated to my clients' cases and always remind myself how I like to be treated when seeking the help of a professional; whether it be a doctor, lawyer, business owner or government worker.
I'm knowledgeable about my legal practice area and continue to learn everything I can about new laws and court rulings that may affect my clients' legal rights.I make myself available to my clients after hours and on weekends; times when most attorneys don't pick up their phones. I truley care about the outcome and the consequences a criminal case has on my client and his or her family.
I'm here to help if you are facing criminal charges, and will do my best to protect your constitutional rights.

have had the pleasure of knowing Ann for over six years. Ever since I've known her, she has always shown interest in criminal law and compassion for those who are faced with criminal prosecution. She is quite attentive to her clients' legal needs and never lacks zeal in zealously fighting for her clients' rights. Her compassion towards those facing prosecution, her geniune interest in the best outcome of her clients, and her legal knowledge makes her an excellent attorney. As a criminal attorney, she has always displayed genuine interest in her clients no matter how big or the small case may be. Should any of my friends or family members be in an unfortuate situation with the law and need a criminal defense attorney to represent them, I would not hesitate to recommend Ann.
