MAIN LAW OFFICE - Torrance, Los Angeles County, California. We serve all of our Southern California Clients from this office, whether at Central Justice Center in Santa Ana, Orange County, California, or at Metropolitan Court, Los Angeles Superior Court.

There are two ways to learn about your case. The easy way... ask your attorney, or the hard way of not getting the help you need. 

We will explain the law, the risk, and the possibilities. As a criminal defendant, you have rights that you need to know about. You also have things that you need to do to protect those rights or to avoid more dire circumstances. 

Our years of experience and high expectations, based on many great results, will greatly contribute to success with your case; not just results but also to increase your understanding and appreciation of the law and the criminal defense processes that directly affect your quality of life. We want to listen to you. We will apply the law to your facts to find legal defenses and possibilities for your case. 


Every decision our attorney makes for your criminal defense starts by asking, "What is in my client's best interest?"

You are the client, the attorney is serving your interests. That means our attorney does for you what is best for you. This may involve negotiating for the best possible resolution or fighting to suppress evidence. The end goal is for the best result for you on your case.

We understand that true legal representation is based on serving the individual client. This starts with your attorney having an in-depth conversation about your case, even about your goals and concerns. We want to know about you and what you want. Our goals become your goals. Our Attorney becomes your Attorney.​
