The City of Citrus Heights was incorporated in 1997. Before then, its 89,000 residents were citizens of unincorporated Sacramento County, which meant that law enforcement was provided by the Sacramento Sheriff's Department. Today Citrus Heights is served by its own police department, including patrol and investigative services.
Since Citrus Heights remains a part of Sacramento County, all crimes committed within Citrus Heights fall under the jurisdiction of the Superior Court of Sacramento County. That means that people who are arrested are processed at the county jail in Sacramento, and arraignments, hearings, and trials are handled at the Sacramento courthouse.Experienced Defense Attorney Located in Downtown Sacramento
Because all of these functions are located in downtown Sacramento, it's important to have a defense attorney familiar with the Sacramento County court system. With offices just a few blocks from the county jail and the county courthouse, I defend clients against all types of criminal charges, including DUI, drug possession, theft, robbery, domestic violence, and juvenile offenses.
My nearly 20 years in criminal law in the Sacramento region - including previous work as a prosecutor - give me the experience and knowledge to effectively defend my clients. I've built a reputation as a tough negotiator and skilled trial lawyer, and work aggressively to defend my clients' rights and reputations.Individual, Dedicated Service for Each Client
