In your time of need, we will work tirelessly to explore every possible defense in your case and make sure you understand all the options you have. We love what we do and are here to help.

You may be at risk of: 

  • Jail or prison time
  • Large fines

A conviction can not only expose you to those criminal penalties but seriously impact your future with a permanent criminal record. When accessed through a background check, you may be prevented from obtaining future employment, housing, professional career licenses, and advanced education. If you are a noncitizen, a criminal record can negatively impact your immigration status. For all these reasons and more, it is essential that you have the representation of a proven Sonoma County defense attorney.
