Our Sacramento Criminal Lawyer can answer all of your legal questions at this time

Our clients most often are not people who have voluntarily chosen a life of crime.  Often times financial and other pressures, or problems with drugs, alcohol or mental health, lead people to uncharacteristic behavior.  Regardless, it is not necessary that one mistake, or even a series of them, should ruin a person's life or destroy the lives of one's family.  Every person charged with a crime is entitled to an effective defense, and to not be convicted of a crime unless the government can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the person in fact committed every element of the charged offense.

Our firm represents people charged with a wide range of crimes, including:

  • Theft offenses
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Homicide and Murder
  • Vehicular homicide/manslaughter
  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Domestic violence
  • Assaults
  • Internet crimes
  • Firearms offenses
  • Forgery
  • Arson

Whether circumstances led to a violation of the law or whether one has been wrongly accused of a crime, professional legal representation by an experienced criminal defense attorney is essential to protecting civil rights and liberties.  Our attorneys assess the evidence in the client's favor, analyze the strength of the government's case, and provide advice on the best course to follow in a given situation, whether it involves entering a plea bargain or mounting an aggressive defense at trial.  For those who have been arrested and charged with a crime, or are a target of a criminal investigation, contact Rothschild Wishek & Sands LLP to speak with a member of our criminal defense team.
