Orange County Criminal Defense Attorneys
Serving Orange County, CA since 1978
Over a quarter of a century ago, two warriors faced one another across the field of battle, each silently and stoically aware of their own apprehension. The battle ensued… and lasted
over a year and a half. Both fought valiantly… and BOTH were victorious. But how could this be?
One warrior was a prosecutor for the county, while the other was a defender of the accused. They found themselves on opposite sides throughout multiple cases. Over time, they began to recognize the skills of the other. Mutual respect formed that developed into an enduring friendship.
And now, 27 years later, that enduring friendship has become the foundation of a law firm dedicated to achieving justice for the accused individual. Together, their combined 70 years of criminal defense and prosecutorial experience have blended to produce a unique, dynamic, and reassuring experience for their clients.
Being charged with a crime can be the most overwhelming, stressful, and traumatic event anyone will ever experience in their lifetime. Indeed, in today's social media environment, a mere accusation can be almost as devastating as a formal charge.
We’re here to help. We’ll take on your situation and handle it with the expertise and care required to ensure that your rights are protected and that justice is served.
