About me

I am a former Oakland Police Officer which gives me a unique insight on how police conduct themselves, write reports, and formulate probable cause to make an arrest.  I love to defend the U.S. Constitution which is why I file a lot of motions for my clients, for example, motions to dismiss charges, motions to suppress due to unlawful searches and seizures, motions to return property, just to name a few.  I enjoy helping my clients through a very difficult  time.  Regardless of whether you choose me, or another criminal defense attorney, if you are charged with a crime, you need a good criminal defense attorney to assist you.  You can always call me for a Free Consultation.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Donald Gray Drewry

    I endorse this lawyer because Ivan is a great DUI lawyer with knowledge and presentation. Ivan was the first lawyer in Alameda County, California to get a Motion to Suppress Evidence denial reversed on blood draws and its analysis. He fights for his clients rights, and is a winner; that is what you want if you are looking for a DUI lawyer for your case. I know all the great DUI lawyers in California as the current President of the California DUI Lawyers Association. I am also aware of the many lawyers who talk a good game and never do a Motion to Suppress or go to Trial, but that is not Ivan. If you are in his office looking for a lawyer to represent you, don't look any further. Hire him, and do it now!!!!

  • William Conwell

    I endorse this lawyer. I studied cross-examination with Ivan for more than a year and learned a great deal from listening to him. His knowledge of police procedure gives him the edge in defending DUI cases, because he knows how to spot the mistakes the police make and how to take advantage of those mistakes in court. Ivan is tough, smart, and compassionate. Ivan gets great results because he tries hard and knows the law. His clients come first and it shows in his work. I would not hesitate to send a friend or a family member to him.
