    After obtaining all of the key facts about your case during a confidential, in-person meeting then I give you a flat-fee quote. I will present how I will aggressively defend you for the best possible outcome. I do not accept all clients. If I think we are a good match then I will offer to represent you. I do not represent people just because they can afford me. My goal is to have a positive attorney-client relationship so that a client will refer friends and family to me in the future.

Legal Answers
8 Questions Answered

Q. PC 666.5 with a prior. I never got stop driving or in a car in Nov. 2018 .how can they charge me?
A: More information is needed. If you would like to consider hiring a private criminal defense attorney -- which always has its benefits because public defenders (if you get one) are overworked and not able to give clients the kind of attention a private attorney can -- then please go ahead and make the appointment to get your question answer correctly by an experience attorney in criminal defense.
Q. The college admissions scandal. How is it a crime to bribe a coach at a private college to gain admission?
A: There are federal crimes involved here because the activities crossed states lines. If you read the various articles about it, they explain what federal crimes are being charged in these cases. It is a good question.
Q. What if somebody stole my trust fund and they was my beneficiary
A: Make a police report and you may have to hire an attorney to represent you. In some instances, one way is to call your local bar association and ask to be referred to an attorney referral service. You may need to hire an attorney experienced in civil law, specifically probate.
Q. In the case of child abuse...
A: The facts you shared do raise some important legal issues and rights. And without knowing more, I cannot answer it completely. A CPS (and some counties have had this agency re-named) worker will have to be involved and be open to your information. If she or he sees it your way then that is the sort answer to your question. Often times CPS/HSA/social services cannot decide who caused the injury to the child. More information is needed. If you would like to consider hiring an experienced private criminal defense attorney -- which always has its benefits because public defenders (if you get one) are overworked and not able to give clients the kind of attention a private attorney can -- then please go ahead and make the appointment to get your question answer correctly.
Q. Can police arrest my son based on speculation?
A: The facts you shared do raise some important legal issues and rights. The short answer is no, they need probable cause. And that is often described by some California and Federal courts as being more than a hunch or similar to a strong suspicion, which is clearly subjective. This is why I, an experienced criminal defense attorney, cannot answer this completely online because more information is needed. If you would like to consider hiring an experienced private criminal defense attorney -- which always has its benefits because public defenders (if you get one) are overworked and not able to give clients the kind of attention a private attorney can -- then please go ahead and make the appointment to get your question answer correctly.
Q. If an error/discrepancy was made in my sentencing, and i subpoena that paperwork can something good happen in my favor?
A: The facts you shared do raise some important legal issues and rights. However, more information is needed. If you would like to consider hiring an experienced private criminal defense attorney -- which always has its benefits because public defenders (if you get one) are overworked and not able to give clients the kind of attention a private attorney can -- then please go ahead and make the appointment to get your question answer correctly.
Q. I was pulled over for taillight infraction.officer pulled me out of car put cuff on me searched me and arrested me.
A: The facts you shared do raise some important legal issues and constitutional rights. However, more information is needed. If you would like to consider hiring a private criminal defense attorney -- which always has its benefits because public defenders (if you get one) are overworked and not able to give clients the kind of attention a private attorney can -- then please go ahead and make the appointment to get your question answer correctly by an experience attorney in criminal defense.
