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....

Jude is an experienced, local Truckee/Tahoe City attorney who was formerly a prosecutor with the Truckee Division of the Nevada County District Attorney's Office. The most important decision you make after you have been arrested or charged with a criminal offense or DUI is who will represent you. You need a qualified, experienced and aggressive attorney to represent you against the charges. In addition, it is important to be represented by a local attorney who understands the policies and practices of the Truckee and Tahoe City District Attorney's offices and the local courts.

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.

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.
