In the midst of all the chaos, there’s one person there fighting for you: your defense attorney.

Criminal Defense Attorney – Martinez, CA

Roberta Brooks has been a criminal defense attorney for the past 15 years. Prior to that she worked as a police officer and for the National Labor Relations Board as a field examiner. This kind of experience has given Roberta the insight and knowledge of how the police investigate a crime, what they look for in terms of evidence, the procedures used to collect the evidence and most importantly, how they think when building their case.

She will dig deeply into the procedures they used in investigating the case against you to discover gaps in their evidence and identify holes in their case as she works to build an aggressive defense on your behalf. She will also explain your legal rights, help you understand the charges against you and lay out all your options.

DUI Attorney – Martinez, CA

The legal ramifications in California if you’re convicted of drunk driving are serious, insurance points will be added, your driver’s license will be suspended and you face the possibility of spending time in jail. If you are driving drunk and involved in a traffic accident, the stakes go up. If someone is killed in the accident, you could be charged with vehicular manslaughter or even first degree murder. A first degree murder conviction could also lead to a "strike" under California's 3 Strikes Law.

Attorney Roberta Brooks is an experienced DUI/DWI attorney with many years of experience. She takes the potentially life changing consequences of a DUI arrest very seriously. She is extremely aggressive when protecting the rights of her clients and will work hard on your behalf to get the charges against you reduced or even dropped.

Roberta realizes that people do make mistakes in life – but she also understands that not all mistakes warrant the kind of consequences that the prosecutor is trying to slap the defendants with. She knows the law inside and out and will ensure that your account of the events is listened to without putting you at risk of being in more trouble. She will fight very aggressively on your behalf to get you the best possible legal outcome.

Now you have an ally in the criminal justice system.
