Going the Distance in Your Bay Area 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.
