A common complaint of clients in criminal cases is that their lawyers were unwilling or unable to take their case to a jury. Clients need an attorney with the skill, smarts and dedication to take a case all the way when plea negotiations, motions to dismiss and all else fail. This is what Serpa Law Office has consistently provided to its clients over twenty years.

A trial record like Serpa Law Office also brings other benefits. District Attorney’s Offices are more willing to offer leniency in plea negotiations when they know they are up against an attorney who will fight a case to the end and likely win. Witnesses will pressure prosecutors to dismiss or reduce charges rather than to face tough cross-examination in front of a jury. Serpa Law Office has obtained dismissals and reductions of charges for its clients innumerable times over the years exactly because of this exceptional trial record.

It is important to have a trial lawyer who will fight for the best result for his clients, and who has the skill and reputation to take a case as far as possible for those results. Serpa Law Office is your law firm for when winning is the only option.
