About Me

Admitted to practice law in all California state courts, the U.S. Federal District Court for the Eastern District of California (Sacramento and Fresno), and the U.S. Federal District Court for the Central District of California (Los Angeles, Santa Ana, Riverside).  I have litigated cases in both Federal and State courts, and have represented clients in almost every county in California.  My practice is exclusively criminal defense.


In addition, I lived and worked in Afgahanistan for six years (2008-2014) training judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys and police investigators in several Rule of Law projects funded by the United States Department of State. 


Currently, I routinely represent clients in Shasta, Siskiyou, Trinty, Tehama, Butte, and Humbolt counties, and Federal District Court in Sacramento.


Outside interests include scuba diving, firearms, camping, hiking, travel, motorcycles, and flying as a private pilot.

  • Peter John Marek

    Experience counts. I have seen his results on a number of occasions in court. As a former public defender he handled thousands of cases. As a private criminal defense attorney he has handled thousands more. If you are in the area and need help do yourself a favor and call him for a consultation.

  • Brian C Andritch

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I used to be a Deputy District Attorney and have had numerous cases against Mr. Fannon. He was always prepared and was a worthy adversary.
