Criminal Defense

Most criminal defense firms cast a very wide net, attempting to bring in every possible case from murder to drunk driving. In contrast, Chris has a low volume practice specializing in serious felony cases that are likely to go to trial if they cannot be resolved on constitutional grounds. These charges carry potential lengthy prison sentences, a potential life sentence, potential life without possibility of parole sentence, or the death penalty: including, murder, attempted murder, solicitation to commit murder, sex crimes, drug trafficking, kidnapping, conspiracy, robbery, burglary, extortion, embezzlement, three strikes, and gang enhancements.

Chris is an expert in the law, investigation, and trial skills necessary to derive the best outcomes for clients in very serious cases. Like surgeons who perform the same surgery day in and day out, Chris has been successfully representing people facing the most serious felony charges for over 30 years.
