Our Fresno criminal defense law firm is dedicated to defending those accused of California state and federal crimes. Most individuals being charged with crimes are terrified and confused by the criminal process.

As an experienced Fresno, California criminal defense attorney, we will do everything in our power to ensure your rights are protected and that you are treated fairly. Our criminal defense firm will fight for you.
I would like to make the following pledge to you:
First, from the start of your case you will be represented by an attorney who puts you first.
Second, I have years of experience and am a well-battled criminal defense attorney who dedicates himself to his clients and their cause. I firmly believe in the rule of law and the presumption of innocence for all. Many attorneys choose to practice in state or federal court. I practice in federal courts and throughout the state of California. Because so much law overlaps between federal and state, knowledge of both courts and system of laws is vital to understanding how everything works and how best to resolve your case. I understand the law.
Third, I am a strict observer of quality over quantity. Therefore, I limit the number of cases I handle so that those cases are handled with complete personal care.
Fourth, I diligently keep up with the complex changes in the law and attend seminars on a regular basis. This allows me to better handle complex cases and ensure that you will receive top-notch legal representation. I am also a Professor of Law, which allows me to remain a scholar and expert in the field.
Fifth, I am dedicated to the American values of honesty, hard work, and justice for all. From the beginning of the case, I will advise you of both the strengths and weaknesses of your case. I will explain the legal theories in easy-to-understand language so that you will understand how the law applies.
Sixth, I will always return your phone calls in a prompt and courteous manner.
Seventh and lastly, I work around the clock to ensure you are represented fully and with the highest sense of professionalism.
