  • Michael C Li

    Evan is a dedicated and smart criminal defense attorney. He is in my close circle of referrals because I can count on him to advocate zealously on behalf of his clients. He is respected by prosecutors, judges and fellow criminal defense attorneys.

  • Joshua A Pops

    Evan has always had a passion that few can match in working for his clients. Criminal defense requires a lawyer who will not be bullied by the Prosecutor's Office, and nobody stands taller and works harder than Evan.
