San Diego, California, Criminal Defense Lawyer
If you have been charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense in the San Diego metro region, you will be facing some of the most experienced prosecutors in California. Prosecutors take California’s three strikes law seriously. Increasingly, they are pushing for felony convictions with harsher penalties, and they have the financial resources and public pressure to prepare a tough case. Your future may depend upon your defense attorney’s skills, experience and reputation.
