If you’ve been accused of a misdemeanor or a serious felony – whether in Marin county of elsewhere in the Bay Area – a San Rafael criminal defense attorney can help. At Summit Defense, our goal is always the complete dismissal of all charges. If this isn’t possible, we often negotiate solutions for our clients that allow them to avoid jail and sometimes even prosecution.

Client had two strike priors for a case in Los Angeles. He had continued to abuse drugs and was given a “last chance” or he would face the maximum penalty (9 years in state prison). Chris violated probation by failing to report and testing positive. Both probation department and District Attorney demanded the full nine year sentence and the judge agreed. We set the matter over for a probation hearing.
After a lengthy hearing, the court agreed to allow client a chance at a residential facility.
Mr. Moore was able to convince the District Attorney that despite a confession and injuries, the case should be dismissed given the victim’s past credibility issues.
Charges possession of child pornography
Client, an immigrant, was charged with possession of hundreds of images and video containing child pornography and was facing 9 years in state prison and deportation.
We retained a forensic expert and were able to show that the images could have been left added due to glitch in Bit Torrent-file sharing software and that this was corroborated by several on-line complaints by users.
immigration safe plea to misdemeanor. No sex offender registration.
To find out which court you are in, please see the Daily Calendar posted at Room 101 at the Hall of Justice Building, or you can contact the clerk’s office on (415) 551-0322. However, if you have retained an attorney, they will find out which court your case is in and let you know where you need to go – and if you need to attend court at all.
Rabin took my call at 8 am his time while he was driving to court (I called from across the country) and within hours he was in the court hearing and got my brother-in-law released from jail without bail! The case is just starting but already I know he’s in great hands. The fee quoted was completely reasonable and fair and the office was super about getting the paperwork done ASAP so Rabin could be there to represent my brother-in-law. The family thanks you!
