Injury Law for the 21st century: Traditionally, a call to a lawyer meant making an appointment, driving to an office to meet in person, parking and waiting just to ask a few questions or sign papers. Today’s internet-connected consumers are no longer satisfied with face-to-face meetings as the sole way of doing business....

The difference between an adequate defense and the best defense possible is the result of knowledge, experience and reputation.

All California defense attorneys have passed the bar exam and have some knowledge of the law. Because I was in the trenches handling serious felony cases in the Placer County Public Defender’s Office, I have the experience you can only get from this type of high-intensity legal defense work.

Combining this experience with the knowledge I acquired inventing and developing the CrimeTime criminal sentencing software and Crime Finder mobile applications gives me a clear advantage when it comes to designing case resolutions that...

Arrested or facing criminal charges?

Criminal law addresses the government's prosecution of individuals who have been accused of committing a crime. Such laws may be federal, state, or local. The prosecution represents the people of a particular jurisdiction, and acts on behalf of the government by bringing a case against an accused. Under the U.S. Constitution, a person accused of a crime may have the right to a criminal defense attorney during interrogations and certain other times before and during a trial.

Whether you are under police investigation, have been arrested, or are facing charges, having an advocate familiar with the criminal justice system.

Most jurisdictions classify crimes as felonies or misdemeanors, with felonies being the more serious offenses with the possibility of more severe sentences. Some criminal lawyers focus on a specific area of criminal defense law, such as white-collar crime, drug offenses, theft crimes, or violent crimes. You should consult with a criminal defense lawyer early on in the process to preserve options, such as diversion programs or plea bargains.

When hiring a criminal defense attorney, you should evaluate the experience and fee structure of the attorney. Some offer a free consultation to discuss your case.


Accomplice liability: If a person aids, assists, or encourages another in the commission of a crime, they are criminally liable as an accomplice to the crime.

Self-defense: The claim that an act otherwise criminal was legally justifiable because it was necessary to protect a person or property from the threat or action of another.
