Helping the Accused Avoid Serious Criminal Penalties

Few experiences are more frightening or terrifying than being handcuffed, arrested, and thrown in a police car, but a California criminal defense attorney at the SoCal Law Network can provide outstanding and effective defense representation if you are charged with a crime in Southern California. With almost fifty years of combined trial experience, our legal team will develop an effective defense strategy, and then we’ll fight aggressively for the justice you need and deserve. We defend clients who face criminal charges including drug crimes, sex crimes, weapons crimes, homicide, assault, domestic violence, traffic charges, and driving under the influence (DUI).

Having the right attorney can make the difference between an acquittal or dismissal and a guilty verdict that results in fines, probation, or jail. Because your personal freedom and future are at stake when you are charged with a crime, we handle every case with determination, passion, and commitment. A criminal defense attorney at the SoCal Law Network can also help you with every aspect of your case, including bail, motions and appeals, plea bargaining, DMV license revocation hearings, and post-conviction issues such as sealing and expunging criminal records.

Our legal team at the SoCal Law Network includes three prominent California criminal defense attorneys. With more than two decades of legal experience and more than one hundred jury trials, attorney Alan Castillo has received the highest possible rating – 10/10 – from Avvo, the national attorney rating service.
