Davis Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you've been arrested by the Davis Police Department or the UC Davis Police, you need an attorney who knows the Yolo County court system and will fight to protect your rights and interests. Before beginning my criminal defense practice ten years ago, I worked as a prosecutor in the Yolo County District Attorney's Office for seven years. My extensive experience as a Davis criminal defense attorney helps me craft an effective strategy for each of my clients.

During my time in the Yolo DA's Office, I handled all types of cases, from DUIs to drug possession and sale to gang homicides. This experience allowed me to become familiar with all elements of the law enforcement and court systems in Yolo County. My knowledge can help you present the best possible defense.

Nancy King was patient, persistent, and polite. She followed up and kept me informed, took a lot of the stress off of me. She was very instrumental in eventually getting the case against me dismissed. It was money well spent. Linda
