Steven A. Alexander

Smart, Aggressive, Relentless 

With offices in Orange and Fresno Counties and over 25 years of unparalleled experience, we provide smart, aggressive and relentless representation in all areas of law, concentrating in Criminal defense and Civil litigation, Employment, and Bankruptcy Cases. The outcome of your case, depends on the attorney you select. Do not select randomly. Effective lawyering is a chess game. It's not checkers.




I am highly skilled and experienced, committed to fighting for justice on your behalf. With over 25 years of experience in the legal profession, I have successfully handled thousands of complex civil and criminal matters, including thousands of serious felonies and misdemeanors.

I obtained my B.A. degree from California State University, Fullerton, with a major in Criminal Justice and a minor in English. I then attended Western State University College of Law, where I received my Juris Doctor degree in 1995. During law school, I was the two-time recipient of the American Jurisprudence Awards in the areas of Evidence and Remedies.

I speak four languages fluently. I am also a highly accomplished chess player, playing the game since the age of 5 and play at master level.

I do not wear Armani suits or drive a Ferrari. I have a blue-collar work ethic and wholly dedicated to fighting for those who entrust their lives to me. I do not take this mission lightly as this is not a job to me. It is my sole passion and I invest my heart and soul in every case I take. 

If you are in need of a highly skilled and passionate lawyer who will fight for you, look no further. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation. I can get you justice.

Heading 5









While many attorneys claim they can represent you "in any case", you are well-advised to inquire how many cases of a particular nature they have actually handled, and the final outcome of those cases. While many talk a big talk, most cringe at the thought of actually arguing your case before a Jury, making coherent arguments, cross-examining police officers and adverse witnesses, and actually standing in front of a jury to fight for your freedom. Do not be fooled by fancy lawyers sitting in shiny offices, giving you a great speech. I will give you a brutally honest assessment of your case and then you decide for yourself. Most lawyers either haven't tried a case or botch a simple case during jury selection. I have held many sobbing mothers in my arms after multiple "Not Guilty Verdicts" were read. I know how high the stakes are and I know what hell the consequences can bring. Some lawyers are knowledgeable, but their arrogance and style lose the jury at "Hello", while others have no clue and learn as they go at your expense, risking your life and liberty. 


Here's what a judge's clerk told me after a 30-minute merciless cross-examination of a veteran police detective in a Murder case in 2013: "I've seen a lot of cross-examinations in my time, but I've never seen a cop completely destroyed like that on the stand. That was just brutal". The cop retired the day after the case and never testified again.

​Here's what Deputy District Attorney Cliff Paige told me after Closing Arguments in an Attempted Murder and Conspiracy to commit Murder Trial: "You were much more effective than most high-priced lawyers I've gone up against. Damn, I think you got me!!"

Here's what the Honorable Judge Lance Jensen told me after an Attempted Murder Trial in Department W9: "You are able to take the most damaging facts against your client and spin them into something beneficial to him. Every time I thought you were not getting out of this one, you developed a plausible explanation."

If your life and liberty are on the line, select experience, know-how, raw linguistic talent and a military-style blue-collar work ethic, over a fancy but inexperienced lawyer sitting in a shiny high-rise building. Juries are unimpressed with "fancy and flash", but look for a well-prepared, well-spoken, intelligent but humble lawyer who is willing to connect with them on their level. Jurors listen to me because I am articulate, always well-prepared and speak from the heart. I have a full staff of experienced and seasoned attorneys, investigators, paralegals, and support staff and ready to handle any size matter at any time.   

If you are charged with a crime in California, there is a high probability that the alleged crime involves victim(s) or witnesses who only speak Spanish. Spanish is not just a language, but a wide and vast culture, spoken by 427 million people from 31 different countries, each with their own sayings, slang, dialects, body-language and distinct accents. Cross-examining Spanish speakers by an attorney who is also fluent in Spanish is 20 times more effective than one who has to listen to the translation through an interpreter for the first time. I am not only fluent in Spanish but also fully familiar with the culture, its nuances, traditions and body-language. Do not hire a linguistically-challenged lawyer when your reputation, future and liberty are all on the line.

I also possess a vast wealth of knowledge in the area of weapons, ballistics, self-defense tools, and most other weaponry. I have a Class III Federal Firearms' Dealer License issued by the United States Department of Justice, FFL license #07544. I fully understand guns, knives and weapons. Do not get convicted by the DA's fast-talking "Weapons Expert". I know where all the pitfalls are. I have successfully completed multiple comprehensive Forensic Science and Pathology seminars dealing with Blood spatter, cross-contaminations, cutting edge forensic technology, detecting false positives, blood and semen collections, wound channel analysis, tool mark comparisons, bullet/barrel markings and fragmentations, etc. False positive tests and contaminated lab results have placed many people on Death Row. I have unlimited access to a retired FBI lab technician with over 30 years of experience, and he has flagged numerous false positives, DNA misinterpretations, false fingerprint reads, and other lab errors in many of my cases. If you are charged with a weapons' violation, or other related weapons' charge(s), do not hire a lawyer who does not know the difference between a .17 HMR and a .338 Lapua. Hire a knowledgeable and well-versed lawyer with a Firearms License; one who knows and fully understands guns and weapons and our ever-changing maze of gun laws. This invaluable knowledge and expertise can make a huge difference in the outcome of your case.

Having tried over 200 cases, trying a civil case is a breeze for me, as most civil attorneys have almost no trial experience or are terrified of going to trial. Most civil attorneys I have come across may have tried 3-4 cases in their entire career. I tried 9 jury trials in 2023 alone, 2 of them "Life Cases". I have successfully squared off against some of the nation's most prestigious and notorious law firms, as well as the District Attorneys' Offices in different Counties and either forced them to settle or single-handedly destroyed them at trial. In addition to my over 25 years' of experience, I have 4 veteran attorneys working for me full-time, and together, we provide you with over 150 years of combined legal experience.
