Phone. Call DA and PD, then a few private attorneys. Most of us welcome the opportunity.


Call the office of Probation in your county in CA and ask to speak to a supervisor and explain your project. As to a criminal defense attorney, call some in your area and one will spare you a few minutes to help you.

I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this response on the avvo website. I have not been retained to represent you. I am licensed to practice law in Kentucky and in federal court in this state and the Southern District of Indiana. You need to seek legal advice from an attorney licensed to practice in your area..


All good suggestions so far. You might even get a nibble here. God luck.


You can call Ciummo and Associates or ADO (the conflict public defender for Fresno County)- you'll reach multiple attorneys at once. I'm sure someone will be willing to speak with you:

Richard A Ciummo & Associates

(559) 441-0114

Alternate Defense Office
2014 Tulare St, Fresno

Probation's contact info. is:
