How to Choose the Right San Joaquin County Criminal Defense Attorney for You

Not all of the Criminal Attorneys in town are created equal. Some attorneys who advertise in San Joaquin County have NO personal experience in the San Joaquin County courts. They simply send a younger associate to court. Other San Joaquin Criminal Attorneys, have local experience, but they charge way too much money, and make grand promises that they can’t back up with performance.

In my opinion, the San Joaquin Criminal Defense Attorney you hire should meet the following criteria:

1. Have experience personally handling Criminal cases in the Stockton and Manteca Courts, including actual trial experience. I have been personally selected as a member of an elite group of criminal trial lawyers included in the Top 100 Trial Lawyers s by the National Trial Lawyers Association.
The National Trial Lawyers

2. Have a track record of the highest levels of customer service. Check out their online reviews. Here is the link to my reviews for example. These are all real reviews collected from various online review sites. You will see that my clients are pleased with the service and results I provide them.

3. The defense attorney you hire should make themselves personally available to you. They should not hide behind their secretary or a salesman. If the attorney will not speak to you before you hire them, they will most certainly be unwilling to talk to you after you hire them.

4. Trust your gut. When you speak to the attorney, do they make you feel better? Do they make you feel comfortable? Do they carefully explain themselves? Do they speak knowledgeably? Hiring an attorney is like selecting a new car. Go with your gut and pick one you actually like.

5. The Attorney you chose to defend you against an San Joaquin County criminal charge should be both highly experienced in the technical aspects of California Criminal law, AND they should have experience with the local customs, procedures, and practices unique to the Stockton and Manteca courthouses.

6. Finally, chose an attorney with the integrity to charge you a fair price. Watch out for attorneys that make incredible promises and charge extreme fees. A good local DUI attorney will charge reasonable prices given the complexity of your case. My prices are among the best you will find. I do not need to overcharge, because I keep my overhead low, and I genuinely like defending people charged with criminal offenses. It is my pleasure to take on the District Attorney (DA)

I Help Clients Avoid Jail.

I have literally helped more of my clients avoid jail than I can count. For the past decade I have spent nearly every day the courts are open fighting to keep my clients avoid jail. In most circumstances, even when my clients were found guilty, I have been able to help keep my client out of jail. Many times, if an experienced attorney fights he can arrange jail alternatives in lieu of time behind bars. In circumstances where jail cannot be avoided I can often find ways to shave sunstantial time off my clients’ jail sentences. If you are facing criminal charges in San Joaquin County, I would love the opportunity to help you avoid jail. Call me today.

Peace of Mind is One Phone Call Away. Call Me Today, and Be Glad You Did

Getting arrested is one of the most frightening things that will ever happen to you. Almost worse than getting arrested is the anxious anticipation after you have been arrested as you wait to find out what will happen. One of my favorite aspects of my job is the opportunity I have every day to meet people who are scared and to give them peace of mind. In my experience, things are rarely as bad as they feel following an arrest. The anxiety and fear we feel tends to get exaggerated in our minds, and this can be the worst part. If you call me, I can help you put your situation into perspective and help you understand your options. We can work together to develop effective defense strategies for you. Call me today and I promise you will feel much better after we speak.

I Tear Cases Apart to Find the Defenses Other Attorneys Miss.

I have learned that good things often happen when you put in the effort and fight, even when it appears you are fighting an uphill battle. One of the the keys to my success in defending my clients over the past decade has been to out-work everyone else. As I tear into my clients’ cases and leave no stone unturned I often find defenses that were not immediately evident from the outset. The benefit of hiring an attorney like me who is passionate about defending you, and who is committed to working on hard on your case, is that if there is a way to defend you, we will find it.

The Parkhurst Difference

I am a very different type of attorney than most of those you will encounter on the internet. My legal service is defined by personalized customer service to each one of my clients. My clients work directly with me and I am personally familiar with each aspect of their cases. You will find no “one size fits all” approach here. My service is personal and exemplifies the highest levels of professionalism. I treat my clients the way I would want an attorney to treat my mother, if she met with one. I believe in providing aggressive legal representation coupled with personalized customer service. That is the Parkhurst difference. Call me and meet me personally. You will see what I mean.
