Steven A. Alexander
Here is what a client's Mother once said: "Every lawyer told me my son's case was hopeless and he would end up doing life in State prison. One lawyer even told me to let him go and move on with my life. You were my Angel from the Sky. You saved my only son's life. I have not been able to stop crying since the [not guilty] verdict. Thank you so much Steve. I don't know how I can ever repay you". (Mother of Jerry Guzman. People v. Jerry Guzman 04CF2248). Judge Gary Paer after trial: "Steve, I can't believe how you pulled it off. This guy owes you his life".
Jerry Guzman was facing life, accused of 3 counts of Attempted Murder/Assault with a firearm, in a case where he had made a full confession to 3 separate police officers. Steven Alexander obtained a Not Guilty Verdict for Jerry, after a highly intense 14 day Jury Trial, described by the Trial DA as a "Blood Bath". (See "Successes"). DA offer before trial: 20 years plus 2 strikes. Since the Not Guilty Verdict in 2004, Jerry's mother has been delivering home-made cookies to the office every week. 04CF2248, People v. Jerry Guzman, Orange County Superior Court, Santa Ana.
Another client was charged with 2 counts of attempted Rape and one count of Robbery (3 strikes) and had a prior robbery conviction and strike. The evidence consisted of the complaining witness, an independent witness, semen DNA left behind by the defendant, physical injuries on the victim, 139 gruesome photographs and numerous false statements made to the police by the defendant. Believing he had a slam dunk victory, DA offered 16 years State Prison and would not budge. After an intense 7 day trial, NOT GUILTY on all counts (convicted of misdemeanor petty theft). People v. Jesus Vasquez, Orange County Superior Court, Santa Ana 14WF4300
My greatest passion and satisfaction in life is helping the oppressed, vindicating the underdog, fighting battles for the poor, going to war for the defenseless and freeing the innocent. My clients hire me for my intelligence and tenacity. I throw my heart and soul in for free.
