PRACTICE AREAS

CRIMINAL DEFENSE

It is important that you understand your rights and options.  Knowledge gives you more power and less fear.

If you are being charged with a misdemeanor or felony it can impact the rest of your life. I help individuals in El Dorado County, Sacramento County, Amador County and Placer County explore all legal options.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE DEFENSE

A significant percentage of my practice involves representing those who are accused of Domestic Violence. If law enforcement responds, it is very common for one party to go to jail (even where the other partner doesn’t want the arrest to happen). Call for advice about what to do next.
