Going the Distance in Your Criminal Case

We have a real passion for criminal defense, as we firmly believe in fighting for our clients' legal rights. One error should not have to wreak havoc on the rest of your life. All it takes is a misunderstanding, and you could land a charge as serious as domestic violence. If you were not aware of your rights and how to use them, you could be accused of evading police.

Whether a lapse in judgment on your part led to a theft crime charge, or an error on someone else's part has led to a restraining order being filed against you, our firm is ready to stand up for your rights. We believe that all criminal cases are important. Whether you were issued a traffic ticket or you were arrested for a drug crime or violent crime offense, we can help.

Our past clients have successfully protected themselves from charges that included:

Whatever accusations you face, we are prepared to assert your legal rights. Were you read your full Miranda Rights? Did officers search your car or home illegally? Is someone else harassing you to the point of needing a restraining order? If your rights were violated by law enforcement or other persons, our firm is ready to provide the tough advocacy that you deserve.

Assistance that Goes Beyond the Courtroom

If your case does not end successfully the first time around, our team is equipped to take your case to the appeals court. We also work on criminal expungement, which involves sealing offenses from an individual's record in order to improve their reputation and avoid issues when applying for jobs or submitting to criminal background checks. We want to secure a positive future for you even after your case is over. We proudly help clients in Oakland, Berkeley, Richmond, Concord, and the surrounding areas!

If you are looking for defense that has gotten results for thousands of defendants, don't hesitate to call us. We can customize our services so they work strongest for your case. We want to provide superb assistance in every case. We have Spanish speaking staff available—call (510) 907-6600 today.
