About Payal

Learn Payal’s areas of practice.

I am a criminal defense attorney, by profession and by passion. This means regardless of your charges, when you are in the courtroom, I am your voice. Whether there are dozens of people supporting you, or I am the only one by your side, I will defend you. My objective is to understand you, your circumstances, and make sure that my representation fits your needs and goals. I will not only make sure that you are fully prepared and understand the process, but most importantly, I will make sure that the court understands who you are and your best interests. Having worked as a caseworker for several years before practicing law, my passion is people, and making sure that their voice is not lost in the system.

Wonderful defense attorney
Payal is one of the best defense attorneys I've ever came across. She fought hard and always kept us informed on everything. She never missed a beat! She is my number 1 recommendation for representation. Her attitude is positive and lovely! Money was well spent with her representation and follow up's. Will forever recommend her to everyone and anyone!
