I have over 30 years of experience and my law degree is from the top ranked University of California- Berkeley. I can help you if you or a family member has been arrested or charged with a crime in California.
My offices are convenient with free parking, just off the 78 freeway in Vista and the 5 freeway in Carmel Valley / Del Mar. My Vista office is directly across from the Vista - San Diego County Courthouse, Jail, and Traffic Court. Your first consultation is free. All fees are reasonable and all major credit cards are accepted. I am available 24/7 with 24-hour in-person phone answering. Hablamos Espanol.
I'm a tough negotiator and successful trial lawyer. Judges and prosecutors respect me because I fight hard to obtain the best result for my clients. I guarantee the high quality of my work and my dedication to seeking the best outcome possible for you under the facts and law. If you are a parent or grandparent, you can retain me to defend your child, of any age, who has been arrested.
In most misdemeanor cases (except for domestic violence),
I can represent you without you ever having to go to court. You won't need to miss work or activities.
I consider all criminal matters urgent and will respond as quickly as possible to your phone call. My phone is answered 24/7 by a live person. If you or a family member has been arrested for a crime, or if you think you are about to be arrested, please call me any time, any day, at (760) 643-4050 or (858) 486-3024.
