You want an attorney who is accustomed to negotiating with the local district attorneys and who has earned their respect. You need a local attorney who is recognized and respected by the local judges.

Avoid Jail by Hiring a Local, Aggressive, Criminal Attorney

For the vast majority of our clients, the number one concern is avoiding jail. We are very proud of the fact that we are successful at helping the majority of our clients avoid jail. Most of our clients never spend another night in jail after they hire us. The key to helping clients stay out of jail is a careful and strategic defense of every single case. Further, we are familiar with the availability of jail alternatives such as work release (working for the sheriff) and electronic monitoring. In situations where the district attorney wants our clients to got to jail, we fight aggressively and work creatively to arrange for alternatives to jail. The result is that few of our clients end up in jail.

Choosing the Right Criminal Attorney Can Save You Thousands of Dollars

In addition to being among the best local attorneys, we also believe in charging honest fees. One of the consequences of being so experienced in the local Central Coast court rooms is that we know how much work goes into most criminal cases and we do our best to charge our clients fair fees. Many local San Luis Obispo attorneys over charge-and under perform. Our goal is to charge a fair fee and then exceed our clients expectations. Another way in which we are commonly able to save our clients money is by getting their charges reduced, negotiation down their fines, and reducing restitution payments. By doing these things, frequently save clients thousands of dollars. Call us today and we explain some of the ways we can save you money.
