I worked with Deanna on many cases. I observed her interactions with clients, courts, juries, and other attorneys on many more. In all those interactions, I always saw a knowledgeable and passionate attorney, effectively advocating for her client. One of the best.

Summary

Prior to establishing LOPAS LAW, I spent a decade as a public defender, in Sacramento as well as El Dorado County. During that time I represented clients in all manner of cases, from complex high stakes homicides, to sexual misconduct, 3 strikes, drug crimes, and DUI. For the last 3 years I have focused on juvenile defense. I enjoy trial practice, but understand that not every case or client is best served through court adjudication or verdicts. I work closely with my clients to reach efficient and positive resolutions and believe in the fragility and growth potential of every youth.
