Personalized Attention From Former Prosecutors

In order to spare our clients from additional stress and extra legal fees, we rarely take a case to trial. Instead, we try to negotiate the best possible outcome. In the event your case needs to go to trial, you can feel confident in knowing that you have our confident litigators on your side. We are former deputy district attorneys who have prosecuted all types of cases, ranging from misdemeanors to DUI and felonies. Now that we are on the other side of the courtroom, we can often anticipate how prosecutors will approach a case.
