Put Our Years of Experience on Your Side

Attempting to handle the complexities of the criminal process on your own could prove difficult. Courts have various rules you must follow and mistakes made during hearings or trials could negatively affect the outcome of your case. Allow our skilled team to guide you through the legal process. From beginning to end, we will provide the counsel you need to fight the charges brought against you. Our Monterey criminal defense lawyers will carefully examine the prosecutor’s evidence and challenge anything that violates your constitutional rights. We will also conduct our own investigation, interviewing witnesses and collecting evidence, to craft a solid defense on your behalf.
