Contra Costa County Criminal Defense Attorneys

Protecting You Against the Criminal Justice System

Contra Costa County is Spanish for "opposite coast." It is primarily a suburban county in the San Francisco Bay Area. It was one of the original 27 counties of California created in 1850. Contra Costa County was originally intended to be called Mt. Diablo County, but the name was changed prior to its incorporation as a county. The county is one of nine counties in the San Francisco-Bay Area and is the ninth most populous in the state with a population of approximately 1,066,096 as of January of 2011.

Have you recently been arrested in Contra Costa County? Anyone can face criminal charges regardless of their education or background. One simple mistake such as getting behind the wheel after having one too many drinks or getting into a fight can change the course of your life forever. Just because you were arrested for a crime, it doesn't mean you are a criminal or that you weren't in the wrong place at the wrong time. Unfortunately, an arrest can lead to a criminal conviction, which can result in hefty fines, incarceration, community service and a permanent criminal record. Being arrested for DUI or possession of marijuana, or a sex-related offense can happen to anyone and it can be an extremely frightening and stressful experience for the accused and their loved ones.

Whether you made an honest mistake or are being wrongfully accused, you owe it to yourself to engage the representation of aggressive and effective Contra Costa County criminal defense lawyers. When your freedom and your reputation are in the hands of law enforcement and a prosecutor who are already convinced of your guilt, you need a formidable and capable adversary in the courtroom fighting for justice and your freedom.
