Experienced Representation and Personalized Attention – Criminal Lawyer in Orange County

We have represented a variety of individuals including medical doctors, teachers and professors, attorneys, and anyone else who holds a professional license that will be adversely affected by a criminal charge. Our office provides high-quality individualized attention to achieve noteworthy results for our clients. We are committed to providing attentive representation in any type of criminal case or investigation and strive to achieve a dismissal, acquittal, or a substantially reduced charge.

Orange County Federal Crimes Defense Attorney

Federal crimes are much different than charges in superior court. Most practicing criminal lawyers in Orange County do not handle cases in federal court due to their unfamiliarity with federal law and procedure. However, a significant amount of our practice focuses on federal cases. When faced with federal accusations that carry severe punishment, you need an experienced and respected Orange County federal defense lawyer to handle your case. Contact our office today to discuss your federal matter. It is never advisable to wait until formal charges are brought before the court before retaining a lawyer.

  • Public Corruption
  • Federal Firearm Charges
  • Grand Jury Investigations
  • Money Laundering
  • Real Estate Fraud
  • Drug Trafficking
  • White-Collar Crime
  • Conspiracy
  • False Statement
  • PPP Loan Fraud
  • Bribery

We also represent individuals and organizations that have been charged or indicted for a crime, or during the investigative stages prior to formal charges. With early intervention, we can conduct independent investigations, develop effective defense strategies, or legally deflect the government from ever charging you. Through this process, our office has been successful in preventing charges from ever being filed against our clients.


I highly recommend his representation to anyone in need of a Orange County Criminal Defense Attorney.
