About Me

At the Law Office of Amy K. Guerra, we understand the frustration that individuals feel with the intricacies of the "system."  We understand that everything that happens in regard to your case has an impact on your employment, your family and your freedom.  At the Law Office of Amy K. Guerra, we think the most effective representation comes from strength in trial, but also in negotiations and motion writing.  For that reason, we practice aggressive, but conscientious and ethical, misdemeanor, felony and appellate representation in the following areas (both adult and juvenile):

     DUIs
     Theft-Related Crimes
     White-Collar Crimes
     Domestic Violence
     Serious & Violent Felonies
     Gang Crimes
     Drug Crimes
     ...and more.

We also understand that even something as small as a traffic ticket can become a great hassle.  For that reason we also offer representation in the areas of:

     Vehicle Code Violations (Fighting Traffic Tickets)
     Probation Modifications
     Expungements

    I endorse this lawyer. I have seen Amy in court since I was interning while attending law school. She preps every aspect of a case, and is ready to argue each point to assist her clients. She fights hard, and takes each case serious. Excellent Attorney!
