San Diego Criminal Defense Attorney
Powerful Defense for Misdemeanor and Felony Charges
When faced with criminal charges, one of the most important decisions you will make is retaining the counsel of an effective, experienced law firm. If you are convicted of such felonies as murder,
rape, or an
internet sex crime, your personal freedoms will be strictly limited, and you could be ordered to serve a lengthy prison sentence. Misdemeanor charges can also carry serious penalties if convicted, even for such crimes as
possession of a small quantity of drugs. Criminal charges of any nature mean that your relationships, reputation, career, and future are in jeopardy, which is why you cannot hesitate to enlist the knowledgeable legal counsel of our
skilled criminal defense team.

Fight Your Charges
Theft crimes may be charged as either misdemeanor or felony offenses, which is why it is imperative to have the counsel of an effective law firm. These crimes include charges of
burglary, and the consequences can be harsh if convicted. In some cases, theft offenses occur in conjunction with
violent crimes, which can lead to more serious penalties. These felony charges range from
domestic violence and
assault & battery to manslaughter, and if convicted, you may face many years in county jail or state prison. Our firm is prepared to provide you with aggressive defense against these allegations, and you can be confident your case will receive a powerful legal voice.
Sex crimes are fiercely prosecuted in the state of California, but our firm possesses the skill and strong trial strategy to defend you against allegations of sexual misconduct, including charges of

sexual abuse or
sexual assault, you must retain the representation of a determined law firm as soon as possible. You should be confident that you have an effective, relentless advocate on your side to challenge these damaging accusations.
