About Me

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.

  • Andrew Blair Leventhal

    Ms. Gottesman is the type of criminal lawyer I'd recommend to anyone - she is is skilled, elegant and eloquent. More importantly, Ms. Gottesman has an immense amount of experience defending any charge on the books. She was a Riverside County Public Defender for several years where she fought tirelessly for the downtrodden and poor. Ms. Gottesman fights the same way for her private clients today. She is also an exemplar for ethics in the private sector. Ann is a wonderful person and a wonderful lawyer; I am thrilled to endorse her.
