San Fernando Courthouse


Having been defending clients in the San Fernando Courthouse for the past 25 years I feel like I can speak with authority and accuracy when it comes to how a criminal case should be defended in this particular courthouse.

I have tried jury trials in all of the courtrooms is the San Fernando Court, done hundreds of preliminary hearings there and represented thousands of clients of a long career.  I still love what I do and I learn something new about myself and the practice of criminal defense every single day.

I have a sense of pride to be able to sit down with a client and their family and set up a game plan that makes sense for their particular case and to figure out how to most effectively represent them, their rights, freedom and reputation.

Dealing With Local Prosecutors

I have seen many head prosecutors come and go over the years in San Fernando.  It it my experience that the head DA's mentality will drive how criminal cases are dealt with in a particular courthouse.   If the head prosecutor is a hard charger who is tough on crime and has a chip on their shoulder, then you can expect things to trickle down to his or her Deputy District Attorneys and it will be a battle for me as a San Fernando criminal defense attorney to achieve what is fair for my client.

If, on the other hand, the prosecutor is fair and is in the business of seeing to it that justice is done, then this is probably the best scenario that a criminal defendant can hope for.  If you have a solid local criminal lawyer by your side under these circumstances then you are in the best position that you can hope to be in.

As I write this post, the head prosecutor in San Fernando is a very fair open minded person who will listen to reason.  The second in command in the San Fernando Court is also very reasonable.  This makes it such a pleasure to handle cases there.

And, when I meet with clients I can usually give them a pretty good feel as to what they are looking at related to their case.  This gives us a huge advantage in how the case will be dealt with and obtaining a result that is the best for the client.  This is exactly why I practice criminal defense and I love every minute of it!
