  • Criminal Defense Attorney

    I am San Francisco defense attorney Mike Ross, and I have practiced criminal law throughout the Bay Area for over twenty-five years. You need an experienced, aggressive attorney on your side, fighting for the rights you deserve. And you need one as soon as possible. Call me now to discuss your case for free. We can arrange an in-person consultation so you can make the best decision for yourself. I am one of the easiest lawyers in San Francisco to get in touch with. After hours calls and appointments are available. Jail visits are also available. I am a former Deputy Attorney General (Criminal Division) and former Special Prosecutor, and I now represent clients who are charged with a criminal offense. I have personally defended over 3,500 criminal cases, including "Three Strikes," heavy felonies, misdemeanors, and over 1,000 DUI cases. I believe that good representation in any type of criminal case requires a lawyer with a broad background and experience defending heavy felony cases where the client's freedom, or even life, has been at stake. From the first case I handled as a San Francisco defense attorney, I realized that communication and cooperation between attorney and client are indispensable in getting the best outcome of the case. A client's satisfaction is based on he or she knowing that everything that can be done for the client's case is being done. This is the kind of experience that I will bring to your case as your defense lawyer in San Francisco, the Bay Area courts, and the courts of any of the outlying areas of Northern California. Call me for an evaluation of your criminal case, free of charge, even for a second opinion.

  • Legal Representation Services

    (3 reviews)

    While many attorneys handle large volumes of criminal cases, I specialize in a more personalized approach. I handle fewer clients, so that I can provide each with the best representation possible. While other firms may see you as a file number, I see each of my clients as a human being. I understand that you are facing an extremely stressful situation, and I will work to ease that burden for you. My experience includes ten years as a licensed attorney in California (with seven years as a prosecutor). I handle both adult and juvenile matters. I started my criminal law career at the toughest prosecutor's office in the state where I learned how prosecutors think and what they hope you don't know. I have handled literally thousands of felony cases in court and hundreds of juvenile and misdemeanor matters. Whether you are factually innocent or not, I am ready to defend you. Whether you have been wrongfully accused, or it seems like the government has charged you too harshly, I am here to help. Keep in mind that, even if you are found guilty, an attorney can be of great help in ensuring that you are not taken advantage of by the State. My background includes 16 years as an officer in the United States Navy including one year in a combat assignment in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom. I studied law at the renowned Frederick G. Levin College of Law at the University of Florida. My undergraduate degree is from the University of California at Berkeley. Let me bring my experience and problem solving skills to your case. Whether you believe you are innocent or not, you should never face a criminal charge without the help of an attorney. Sometimes prosecutors and police make mistakes. Sometimes they overcharge or seek a punishment out of proportion to the facts of the case. In any case, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who knows how to fight for you. My clients include adults and children (juveniles). I handle DUI, misdemeanor, and felony cases in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.
