Best Bay Area Criminal Defense Lawyer
Smart. Knowledgeable. Kind. Charges were reduced and license was saved. She made it easy, fought hard, knew the Judge and prosecutor. I did not have to go to court or worry about a thing. She always picked up the phone and always answered questions. She was kind and treated me like a person during the hardest time of my life. Choosing her as my lawyer was the best decision I could have made. Thank you, Ms. Ghazal.

Legal Answers
14 Questions Answered

Q. If I was charged with domestic violence n had a court date n missed it,can I call a judge to get another court dat
A: There is likely a warrant for your arrest. I advise contacting a local criminal defense lawyer or Public Defender AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. A lawyer can contact the court to arrange to appear for an arraignment rather than surrendering to police custody, calendar a hearing on a warrant prior to arrest, arrange to have you turn yourself in rather than being arrested or determine the amount of outstanding bond.
