CIVIL AND CRIMINAL TRIALS

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 the Honorable Judge Gary S. Paer told me after my client was found Not Guilty of 3 counts of Attempted Murder: "You are able to connect with a Jury on a level I've never seen before". 

Here's what Department W9 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 detective 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, you got me!!"

Here's what the Honorable Judge Lance Jensen told me after an Attempted Murder Trial: "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 proverbs, 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 immersed in the culture, its nuances, traditions and body-language. Do not hire a linguistically challenged lawyer when your life and liberty are at stake.

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 hidden 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 and bullet/barrel markings, trajectory 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 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.

If you are a legal CCW holder, you best have access to an experienced trial attorney available to you 24/7 by cellphone. Over 200 current CCW holders have me on 24/7 retainer and have 24/7 cellphone access to me in the event the unthinkable misfortune of use of lethal self-defense falls on them. Do not talk with investigators alone in the aftermath of a self-defense scenario. I will personally show up to your scene with a clear head, armed with life-saving courtroom tactics that will make the difference in your self-defense case. You saved your life, let me save your fate.

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.
