The key to winning a case begins with a deep understanding of the facts. Through our close network of investigators, doctors and experts, we build a team to present a strong defense and critically analyze the government's evidence.


We have clients in Northern and Southern California and respect how different courthouses operate. We settle many cases outside the court room and negotiate zealously to obtain winning results.


Many issues in a case should be litigated and properly argued in court. Through in-depth legal research and writing our motion practice strongly puts our client's story in front of the court while using the law to protect their rights.
