About Me

Being charged with a crime is a very serious matter. It is crucial that an attorney informs you of your rights, obligations and options. My name is Peter j. Marek and I am a former Deputy District Attorney (Prosecutor) for San Joaquin County, so I know how they think and how to deal with them. Let my decades of experience work to your advantage! I will develop a working relationship with the District Attorney assigned to your case with the goal of getting the best possible result for you. I offer personal attention, fast action, and aggressive representation. I represent clients charged with any and all misdemeanors and felonies.                          


INSIST ON MEETING AN ATTORNEY BEFORE HIRING ONE.  Your consultation should be with the attorney only. BEWARE of and AVOID commissioned SALES STAFF/CASE MANAGERS hired by an attorney. Don't be afraid to ask; "Are you an attorney?" I am the only one authorized in my office to give legal advice and conduct FREE LEGAL CONSULTATIONS. When you call me, you can be assured your legal consultation is conducted by an attorney, not commissioned SALES STAFF/CASE MANAGERS.


If your case is a misdemeanor you may never have to suffer the inconvenience of having to appear in court, I do it all for you. If your case is a felony and you are required to appear in court, I will be by your side to defend you powerfully and vigorously.




If your loved one is incarcerated, call me first before you contact a bail bondsman. Since bail is not always needed, I may be able to arrange for your loved one to be released on his/her own recognizance (OR); or even reduce their bail when it cannot be waived.


YOUR defense is MY #1 Priority!!!


CALL ME FIRST FOR A FREE CONSULTATION WITH AN ATTORNEY. You may contact me 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Payment plans are available.
