I entered the Marine Corps after Law School and worked as a Judge Advocate as a defense attorney. I worked as a Deputy District Attorney for four years before I brought my family to Nevada County California and opened up my practice with my wife Debbie as my paralegal and legal assistance. I have been practicing in Nevada County since 1982. I feel that everyone needs a strong defense and should not face the system alone.

The Criminal Justice System is often referred to as "Adversarial." This is because regardless of the charges you are facing, you and the government will do battle over one critical item of evidence: Your "Presumption of Innocence." The United States Supreme Court has said that the Presumption of Innocence is "evidence" in favor of the accused, and the government wants to keep that evidence from the Jury. To have a fighting chance, you need someone who knows your adversary.

With nearly 20 years of experience as a lawyer, and as a former supervising deputy district attorney, I know your...

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.
