San Diego Criminal Defense Attorney
Facing a criminal charge is always serious, and you always have the right to retain an attorney. Even if you qualify for representation from a public defender, you should strongly consider the added value of a private lawyer. It is not just your criminal record that is on the line. Your entire future, including job opportunities, loan eligibility, freedom and parental rights (if you have children), is placed in serious jeopardy. If you or a loved one has been arrested or charged with a criminal offense, hiring a cost-effective criminal defense lawyer in San Diego as soon as possible is critical. I serve clients from Chula Vista to Oceanside. At The Law Offices of Mark Deniz APLC, I offer a free case evaluation, competitive pricing and affordable payment plans.
