Drug Crimes

Crimes involving drug possession, cultivation, manufacturing, sale, trafficking, and paraphernalia can result in serious consequences.

Violent Crimes

Violent crimes often result in the most serious statutory penalties and collateral consequences that impact your entire life. Assault, murder, kidnapping, and other violent crimes often arise from misunderstandings and false accusations. Someone may have falsely identified you, or you may have been unaware of your actions at the time. A skilled Orange County criminal defense attorney will develop a defense that seeks the best outcome in your specific situation.

White Collar Crimes

White collar crimes are not violent in nature, but often occur for financial benefit. Crimes like embezzlement, fraud, bribery, and identity theft, do not do physical harm to another person. However, the law still penalizes them harshly. It’s important to work with an Orange County criminal defense attorney who understands California white collar laws and can help you explain what may have been a difficult and confusing situation. We will walk you through the criminal justice process and then make sure you understand your options at every step of the way.


If law enforcement stopped and arrested you for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you may be facing difficult consequences that will impact your life at home and work.

You may have concerns about keeping your job as well as transporting yourself and your family.
