Personalized Attention and Support

We know that every case is different. You are entitled to personalized attention for a top Ventura criminal defense attorney.
One-size-fits-all legal representation is simply not good enough in criminal cases. There is too much at stake. At Strongest Defense, our Ventura County criminal defense team is always ready to put time and resources behind your case. The defense strategy that worked well for another client may not be the right choice in your case. The prosecution has the burden of proving every element of the criminal charge beyond a reasonable doubt. If they cannot meet this burden, we will fight to get the charges thrown out. If they can meet this burden, we will focus our strategy on reaching a plea agreement that best lets you regain control of your life. No matter the charges you are facing, there is always a path forward. Let us help you find it.

Clarity of Purpose

Facing a criminal accusation is confusing, even frightening. We will help you understand exactly what is happening.
One of the biggest challenges of going through the criminal justice system is the inherent uncertainty. Unfortunately, you cannot rely on police or prosecutors to give you straight answers about what you are facing. It is easy to let your mind race to the worst case scenario. A criminal charge should always be taken seriously—but an arrest does not mean that your life is over. Our Ventura County criminal defense attorneys are here to walk you through the process. We will have your back every step of the way, making sure you understand the stakes and know exactly what is going on with your case. Our mission is simple: Provide the highest level of client-service and legal representation to each and every valued client.
