Defending Against a Wide Range of Criminal Matters

If you have been charged with a crime, don't hesitate to contact us today to schedule a free initial consultation. We have experience handling a wide range of criminal matters, including the following:

  • DUI/DWI : A drunk driving accusation generally involves both criminal charges and a driver's license suspension hearing. We will pursue options to help you avoid or reduce the consequences in both cases. Part of our defense strategy includes identifying any procedural errors or violations of your constitutional rights from the field sobriety or Breathalyzer tests.
  • Alcohol offenses : If you've been charged with being drunk in public, underage drinking or use of a fake ID to buy alcohol, we will assess the facts of your case and take appropriate steps in your defense.
  • Traffic offenses : Even a minor traffic ticket can have negative implications on your driving privileges and insurance rates. From our law office in San Luis Obispo, we represent clients accused of speeding, reckless driving, distracted driving and other serious traffic matters.
  • Drug charges : Whether your drug charges involve illegal drugs like marijuana and meth or prescription drugs like OxyContin® and methadone, we will explore all of your options, including diversion programs.
  • Medical marijuana : Under California law, medical marijuana is legal, but under federal law, it is not. Conflicting law enforcement policies can lead to confusing situations. We will stand up for your rights as a patient or caregiver, if you are facing criminal charges for possession, cultivation or distribution of medical marijuana.
  • Assault and battery : If you have been charged with assault and/or battery in the context of a bar fight, a domestic dispute or other situation, you need a seasoned attorney who will take a holistic and knowledgeable approach to your criminal defense.
  • Sex crimes : From sexual assault to child molestation to indecent exposure, sex charges are a serious situation that can have long-term consequences. We will fully investigate your case in order to understand your options.
  • Juvenile offenses : When someone under 18 is charged with a crime, he or she needs an attorney who is familiar with the unique aspects of the juvenile justice system. We can guide you or your child through the legal process.
  • Professional license defense : We provide comprehensive license defense services to medical professionals throughout California. Whether you are accused of professional malpractice, a criminal act or an ethical violation, we will advise you on how to protect your livelihood.

In addition to defending local residents, college students and other clients facing criminal and juvenile charges, we help parents whose children have been taken away by child protective services. Our law firm also helps clients with criminal records pursue expungements so that their records do not continue haunting them years later.
