About me

District Attorneys are in the business of prosecution.  Because of this, you should hire an attorney who has always been in the business of defending individual's rights under Constitution of the United States.


One of my personal goals as your attorney is to wipe clean the stigma and stain that a false or erroneous charge can create in your personal and professional life.  I do this by focusing on the clients represented by my practice and focusing on the needs of the individual client.  My practice is based on providing the best outcome for the client.  If this includes trial, then I aggresively move towards trial and diligently pursue and provide the attention to detail that trial requires.  If your case does not or should not require a trial then my contacts throughout the defense community will allow me to enhance your chances of receiving a fair and reasonable outcome.


If you are looking for aggresive, honest, reasonably priced representation, then I look forward to helping you through your case, shielding you, protecting you, and defending you to the best of my ability.




Steve Whitworth, Esq.

    I was Steve's law professor when he was a law student. He stood out head and shoulders above everyone else. I knew this guy was going to be really good in criminal defense. He later interned at the public defender, where he gained a reputation for skill, charm and charisma. (One of the clerks immediately developed a crush on him!) As a criminal defense/DUI attorney, Steve has proven to me and my colleagues that he is among the very best in the field. His presence, dedication, hard work ethic, skill and persuasive power define him as a leader among criminal defense/DUI attorneys. Given my current position as a U,C, Berkeley faculty member, I am often asked for recommendations. I would give Steve, without reservation, my highest endorsement as a top-flight criminal defense and DUI defense attorney.
