SUMMIT DEFENSE TEAM
JAMES REILLY
James Reilly’s accomplishments in the courtroom are well known in the Northern California legal community. A former supervising prosecutor and current defense attorney with over 20 years of criminal law experience under his belt, Jim is one of those rare individuals who is a success at everything he does. As a former supervising DA, James Reilly knows when prosecutors are bluffing and always pushes for a better outcome—including winning at trial.

STRENGTH IN NUMBERS

Our team of attorneys understand legal theory and, more importantly, we understand the criminal justice system tasked with carrying out this theory. However, no single attorney knows every part of the law. Often, an attorney will benefit from the perspective of fresh eyes or the wealth of prior experience or motions bank used by other attorneys. Our ability to rely on each other’s prior criminal defense experience, knowledge, and prior success allows us to quickly assert your rights and assess the various legal and factual issues of YOUR unique case. This TEAM APPROACH allows us to depend on each other’s unique and diverse experience to build a practical, effective and result oriented defense strategy. Our ability to tap into the wealth of knowledge of two former District Attorneys, a police officer, or the 120 years of cumulative experience in criminal court will translate to better results for you and your family.

I don’t normally say this, but Mr. Reilly, you are always welcome in this courtroom. I thought you were a consummate professional. You were prepared, you were intelligent. You represented your client perfectly. And you squeezed everything out of this case that you possibly could and I think the defendant is lucky to have you.

 

– Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge (April 20, 2011, San Jose)
