Criminal Defense Law Firm


Felonies can range from murder and sexual assault, to arson and burglary. They are the most serious criminal charge and are often violent in nature.


Somewhere between infractions and felonies are misdemeanors.  They carry a wide range of punishments and include such crimes as larceny, petty theft, drug charges, DUI/DWI, and battery.

DUI Defense

DUI is one of the most common criminal charges. Field sobriety tests and high blood alcohol levels are most often behind these charges. Our Bakersfield DUI lawyer can help defend against these types of charges.


One of the best ways to turn your life around is sealing or dismissing criminal court records. Many charges are eligible for expungement once you successfully complete your probation.
