    There are a number of qualified criminal defense attorneys in Southern California, but Jeremy clearly stands out as one of the best. He is an extremely bright and talented trial attorney who has honed his skills well over nearly twenty years of practicing. Having worked with him both in the Orange County Public Defender's Office and watching him in private practice, I can personally say he is a formidable force in the courtroom. His skill and legal acumen is matched only by his personable nature and the fact that he honestly cares about his clients. That combination of skill and personableness, has solidified his reputation as a trusted advisor and cultivated a strong reputation with judges and prosecutors. As a result, he is able to get spectacular results for his clients. Bottomline: Jeremy is an excellent choice to handle any criminal case.
