Practice Areas

When you break a bone do you go to an allergy doctor? When you are charged with a crime, even a minor crime, do you consult an attorney whose primary practice is in civil court? Hopefully your answer is no. I'm sure the civil law attorney is competent at civil law, but criminal law is a different beast. The first thing anyone charged with a crime needs to understand is that just as it is with physicians and many other professions, there are practitioners who specialize in one particular area of the practice. When it comes to your freedom, don't take chances—you need an experienced Orange County criminal defense attorney who understands the particularities of criminal law and knows the ins and outs of the criminal court system.

On the other hand, some people don't take criminal charges as seriously as they should. These people think that, for example, because they are innocent, the charges will just be dropped or that because the charge is minor, an attorney is unnecessary.
