Wilber Law began with a love of criminal defense. We’ve expanded to include other areas of law, but the ability to advocate for the rights we all share under the Constitution of the United States is an honor and a privelege. Without lawyers willing to take on this difficult task, police would have free reign to invade our privacies and courts would have free reign to convict people charged of crimes without a fair process. This crucial work speaks to our hearts. It is said that you can measure the moral fiber of a society by...

From my first day of Law School I knew that criminal law was my passion. I was fortunate to be selected to intern at the Sonoma County Public Defenders Office for 3 years during law school. There I was able to work on real cases involving real clients facing real criminal charges. This time gave me valuable insight into how the court system works, how to interact with opposing counsel, and how to best advocate for my clients best interest.

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.
