Experience That Makes a Difference

If you're facing criminal charges, you need a quality attorney with the skill and reputation to defend your liberty and livelihood. I draw on my nearly 20 years in criminal law in the Sacramento region to craft the best defense possible for each client's case. 

Experience matters. I know the strategies that work to defend my clients. During my years as a prosecutor, I had firsthand experience with almost every kind of criminal case, from drunk driving, drug possession, and juvenile crime to major narcotics, child molestation, and gang homicide. When facing criminal charges, you deserve the top quality legal defense that I can provide.

Skilled Trial Attorney and Negotiator

Since the reality of the court system today is that most cases are settled through plea bargain, my expertise and experience can help you get the right agreement. My thorough knowledge of the law, excellent reputation with law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges, and determination to fight for your interests are critical to getting the best possible negotiated settlement.

If your case goes to trial, my record of trial success can be invaluable. As a former prosecutor, I know what to expect from the district attorney during trial, can formulate an effective strategy, and will fight to defend you.

Pledge Of Personal Service

I insist upon providing each of my clients with personal service. I will not take your case and pass it to a less experienced attorney. See the Testimonials page to read what clients have said about the high quality legal representation that I provide.

Client Reviews
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
My son's case involved felony theft and drug charges. We were thrilled when Nancy was able to obtain a dismissal on all charges. My son's now back on track with his career. Nancy is the kind of attorney who fights hard for her clients and actually cares about them. I recommend her highly. Shawn M.
