Santa Barbara Criminal
Defense Lawyer

With my former experience as a prosecutor, I am well aware of the tactics and efforts used by the prosecution in seeking a conviction. I can therefore examine their case for any holes or weaknesses they might have in order to provide you with a more effective defense. My relationship with police officers and judges in the local area is one of mutual respect, which can help in pursuing exoneration of your charges. My goal is always to provide the best possible outcome for your situation, whether it be a reduction of the charges, a dismissal, or an acquittal at trial.

All efforts must be made to avoid a conviction if at all possible. Criminal charges resulting in a conviction can lead to serious consequences to your life for years to come. You could face jail or prison time, and many other penalties for the immediate charges, but the long term can lead to job losses, difficulty in finding new employment, higher insurance rates and trouble finding housing. Don't risk your future, let me use my experience and knowledge of the Ventura County legal system to help you resolve your case at a competitive rate.
