Review Christopher Dove

About Me

A San Francisco native, I spent my third year and final year in law school working as a full-time intern for a senior deputy public defender. After graduating and passing the Bar exam, I opened my own criminal defense practice. I've traveled to courts all over California, from Santa Rosa to Santa Barbara, San Francisco to Auburn.

I truly enjoy being a criminal defense attorney. I always wanted to be able to work with good people who find themselves in tough spots and I like to think that that enjoyment carries through to my work.

  • Joshua Beal Davis

    Chris is an excellent criminal defense attorney. He obtains superb results at trial and knows when and how to settle cases favorably. He is hard-working and just the type of person you want in your corner in a difficult situation. I would not hesitate to refer a client with a criminal matter his way.
