He uses this insight to fight for you.

An Aggressive Criminal Defense Lawyer In State And Federal Court

Our law firm handles many different types of criminal defense cases, including:

  • DWI, including driver’s license suspensions and all related traffic offenses
  • Drug crimes from possession of marijuana to distribution of methamphetamine, heroin or prescription medications
  • Domestic violence allegations
  • Assault charges such as aggravated assault and sexual assault
  • Trespassing, theft and burglary along with any related weapons charges
  • Sex crimes, for example, allegations of child pornography or indecency with a child
  • Federal crimes, including federal drug charges, obscenity charges and internet offenses

We use a detail-oriented review of the evidence in your case to search for mistakes or misconduct that happened during your arrest and processing. A strong criminal defense involves more than a brief review and the ability to go to trial. Criminal defense lawyer Sergio Sanchez knows how to analyze the details, file appropriate motions, fight with the prosecutor. He does the hard work — looking under every stone, reviewing every fact and analyzing how the law applies — to prepare and present a strong, strategic defense at every stage of the criminal court process. We fight in state and federal court to get our clients’ cases dismissed. We work efficiently and in a cost-effective manner to help you.

If you are eligible, we will find diversion programs that may limit the impact an arrest can have on your future. Our goal is to keep you out of jail and with your family, where you can continue with your job or continue with your education.
