Appel & Morse focuses entirely on criminal defense and we put our more
than 30 years of combined legal experience to work in each case we handle.
In addition, our firm has experience as former district attorneys, meaning
we understand how the prosecution works to obtain convictions and we can
work to undermine their argument.
Fighting for Clients All Along the Central Coast
We strive to provide our clients with dynamic and effective advocacy when
they have been accused of criminal activity. Whether you have been charged
with DUI, a theft crime, or domestic violence, we have the tools to contest
Our firm can offer professional representation in the following courthouses:

- San Luis Obispo
With Appel & Morse, you have access to seasoned criminal defense attorneys
who will fully explain to you your charges and available legal options.
We are also fierce negotiators who can lobby effectively for our clients.
It is sometimes the case that when the prosecution recognizes an aggressive
and determined defense attorney, rather than fighting a prolonged court
battle, they can agree to lesser charges during negations before a trial
even begins. Other times, the prosecution is even willing to not pursue
charges at all, meaning your charges would be dropped.

criminal defense lawyer from our firm standing behind you after you are
charged with a crime. We can keep you fully apprised of your situation
and work towards a favorable resolution for your case.
