Choosing the right criminal defense lawyer can make all the difference 

If you or a loved one is suspected of committing a crime, or has been arrested or charged with a crime, you need to hire a lawyer as soon as possible to work on your behalf. If charges have not been filed, quick and diligent work by a defense attorney may avoid them entirely. If charges have been filed, you will need an experienced attorney to conduct a thorough investigation and raise all relevant defenses. Even if you think your case is hopeless, there is a lot that an experienced, aggressive, and effective defense team can do to improve the outcome of your case. 

When selecting a lawyer, consider these four qualities:
1. Experience
2. Reputation
3. Honors & Recognitions
4. Record of Success

All criminal defense attorneys are not the same.
You need a law team that is experienced, aggressive, and knowledgeable about the law. When you retain the Law Offices of Lawrence & Peck you hire the entire staff to work on your behalf. Michael is an award-winning trial lawyer who was the Chief Public Defender of Monterey County for almost three decades. Juliet was a deputy public defender for more than 11 years and has won a series of notable cases.
