Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

Seth R. Hancock is an experienced and zealous criminal defense attorney and has handled thousands of cases throughout Southern California. Mr. Hancock handles all types of criminal defense matters. He has experience representing individuals being investigated by law enforcement, charged by prosecutorial agencies, at trial, in the Court of Appeal, in habeas corpus proceedings, and parole hearings.

After graduating with high honors from California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, he obtained his Juris Doctorate degree from Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. Following law school, Mr. Hancock worked as a Staff Attorney at the Project for the Innocent, a non-profit organization that represents individuals that are in prison for crimes they did not commit. In that capacity, Mr. Hancock played an integral role in successfully freeing a woman serving a functional life sentence for a murder she did not commit. In addition to that success, Attorney Hancock also became the first attorney in California to successfully litigate a Senate Bill 1437 Petition, which resulted in his client’s murder conviction being vacated, and his client being re-sentenced and released.

As a Staff Attorney at the Project for the Innocent, Mr. Hancock also taught various legal topics to law students, while simultaneously mentoring and instructing them on the in’s and out’s of post-conviction legal proceedings. Following his work at the Project for the Innocent, Mr. Hancock worked as a Deputy Public Defender in Los Angeles County—the largest and first Public Defender’s office in the nation. As a Deputy Public Defender, Mr. Hancock successfully litigated hundreds of motions, gained significant trial experience, and received numerous acquittals (“not guilty” verdicts) for his clients. After several years as a Deputy Public Defender, he then entered private practice, where he worked for a prestigious criminal defense firm in the Los Angeles area.
