We are familiar with their tactics and procedures, and use our knowledge of them to defend you. Contact us as soon as possible so we can begin defending your rights.

Reputation Matters in your Criminal Defense Lawyer

Your reputation matters. Our reputation matters. Ours has been built upon dedication and success and our unfailing dedication to our clients and the community we serve. This is why we give legal advice on criminal topics on KNBR 680 and KNBR 1050. This is also why we are mentioned in local and national media sources on a consistent basis: we get results for our clients. We have a reputation for offering comprehensive legal representation in all phases of criminal defense: from booking to arraignment and to trial. We have experience with everything from straightforward DUI cases to murder cases in which someone faces the most serious penalties. Contact San Jose Criminal Law if you have been accused of a serious crime:

We can also assist with Record Clearance if you have already been convicted.  Many people turn to us when they must get a criminal conviction expunged from their record. We may be able to help you.

Because we have decades of experience, we have comprehensive understanding of the California criminal justice system. We have also demonstrated that such knowledge leads to success. Newsweek selected our team as one of the 2012 Nationwide Leaders in Criminal Defense. However, one of the most important distinctions we can earn is a referral from a former client. We are proud that former clients consistently refer their loved ones to us when they are facing serious charges.
