Attorneys Available 24/7 to Answer Your Questions



With CA Penal Code 503 or embezzlement accusations, our goal is to get the charges dropped in the pre-file stage before your reputation is damaged. We negotiate with employers to work out civil compromise arrangements.


If you have a criminal record, in most cases in Alameda county courts we can help you clean it to give you a fresh start and make it invisible to future employment background checks.

Federal Crimes

If you are facing federal criminal charges in the Oakland, CA Area, you'll need an attorney on your side who knows the nuances and specialized rules of federal court.

Grand Theft

In Alameda County, Grand theft refers to stolen property or services that are valued above $950. Keep in mind that, unlike petty theft, which is a misdemeanor, Grand Theft is a wobbler which means it may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony.

Child Pornography Possession

If you are found with even just a few child pornography images on your computer, you can face serious consequences which include sex crime registration. We will fight to help you avoid jail and stay off the registration list.

Indecent Exposure

We believe strongly that these are minor, almost victimless offenses. We have developed effective legal strategies to protect your clean record, avoid registration and keep you out of jail. These cases are often misunderstandings that can be cleared up before trial.
