With hard work, skill, and determination, we have been fortunate to win many victories for our clients.

Our clients know we genuinely care to see them overcome the often seemingly insurmountable odds. For this reason, we are never more than a phone call away and provide free initial consultations.

We proudly serve clients throughout Monterey County from our office in Salinas. We accept cases in Santa Cruz, San Benito, Carmel, and select cases from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

What We Offer Our Clients

  • Experience and integrity – We provide relentless and passionate advocacy for clients, unimpeded by a desire to be liked by judges or prosecutors. We do not back down when faced with stiff opposition and will relentlessly fight to obtain the best possible outcome in every case.
  • Personal attention – We provide a personal commitment to each and every client and fearless advocacy in criminal courts. Whether this is your first brush with the law, or you feel weighed down by your past, we will make sure that you are treated with respect, fairness, and dignity you deserve.
  • Aggressive advocacy - To successfully defend each criminal case, we meticulously prepare every aspect of your defense, painstakingly investigate the facts and research the law, and strategically craft the most compelling motions and arguments to persuade judges and juries.
  • Compassion and understanding – We provide our clients with caring and compassionate guidance throughout this difficult situation and present you with a realistic and professional assessment of your case. We do not attempt to scare anyone with unlikely worst-case scenarios or pressure you into a premature or ill-advised plea.
