San Diego Criminal Defense Attorney
Representing Only the Accused in State and Federal Court
Criminal arrests and charges are the beginning of a legal process that can be confusing, frustrating, and frightening. If you have never been involved in the criminal justice system before, you may have little understanding of the actions which may follow. You may not know how best to proceed or what to do or not to do to protect yourself. That is why you need a dedicated legal professional who knows the laws, the local court systems and their personnel, and who has been effective in criminal defense in the past. The quality and commitment of the attorney you choose to represent you in any criminal case can have a major impact on your future. Retaining a lawyer who has a strong track record, who takes the time to thoroughly understand and investigate your case, and who maintains open communication with you throughout the entire process is crucial. That is what you will find at the Law Offices of Scott M. Schlegel.
Our firm focuses exclusively on criminal defense; we only represent the accused. If you are facing a
misdemeanor or more serious
felony charges, whether at the state or federal level, we can help. Our reputation and experience sets us apart.
