I'm a criminal defense lawyer, and I have been serving Northern California for more than 30 years. I am currently taking a sabbatical leave from law practice for most of 2017. I am a specialist in criminal law, certified by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. Over the course of my career, I've defended virtually every type of criminal case, from drug offenses, low-level misdemeanors, and DUIs, to capital murder cases and serious felonies. Although I retired from government service as public defender of Yolo County in 2009, I stayed on in a transitional role up to March 2010. Throughout my term in office, I was the attorney of record for literally thousands of people in Yolo County every year. I am glad to be representing people on a one-to-one basis again. I realize that this might be a hard time for you. Contact me for a free and private consultation protected by the attorney-client privilege (which I will gladly provide, depending on schedule and availability).
