Salinas Criminal Defense Lawyer

30+ Years of Trial-Tested Experience

Have you been charged with a felony or misdemeanor offense in Salinas, San Jose, Los Gatos, or elsewhere in Monterey County? You are not alone. Over a million arrests are made in California every year. Many of those who have been arrested are guilty of nothing more than being in the wrong place at the wrong time. 

Unfortunately, being innocent of an alleged crime is no guarantee that you won’t be convicted of it. The best way to fight your charges after an arrest and avoid prison time, expensive fines, and the other consequences of a criminal conviction is to partner with a dedicated criminal defense attorney in Salinas as soon as possible after you have been charged.
