No one ever WANTS to go out and hire a criminal attorney, but if you're facing charges, you NEED to hire the very best San Diego criminal lawyer you can find!
Luckily, you're in the right place…
I'm Anna Yum, an award-winning attorney who went to law school right here in San Diego. A number of national TV shows and networks turn to me when they need a legal analyst, but I'm most proud of the work I've done away from the TV cameras. Over the years, I've given countless people a passionate defense when they've been accused of committing crimes. I've handled everything from murder cases, to drug cases, to DUI cases, to domestic violence cases, to counterfeiting cases, and much more.
What makes me different from all of those other San Diego criminal lawyers?
— I used to be a prosecutor. Many San Diego criminal attorneys sit around and try to guess what's going on in the District Attorney's mind, but I've actually been there! I’m a former Deputy District Attorney, and I've prosecuted cases just like yours. That background gives me a unique advantage when it comes to negotiations, whether we're talking about probation instead of prison or getting your charges dismissed altogether. It also gives me a unique advantage when it comes to spotting—and attacking—the prosecution's weak points in the courtroom.
After all, winning a fight becomes much easier when you know all of the ins and outs of your opponent's strategy. Because of my experience as a prosecutor, I have insight that most of the criminal attorneys in San Diego can only dream of!
— I genuinely care. Unlike other criminal attorneys in San Diego, I won't treat you like you're on some kind of assembly line. After all, this is your life we're talking about! I'll be happy to sit down and answer all of your questions -- no matter how many of them you have. I know that facing criminal charges is scary. You need to go through this process feeling like you're part of a powerful team, and that's the feeling I pride myself on giving to my clients!
If you're looking for a criminal lawyer in San Diego who will fight for your rights, protect your interests, and offer an expert shoulder to lean on, you've found it!
— I'm a winner in the courtroom. Talk to many San Diego criminal lawyers, and you'll discover that they're actually scared of going to trial! Lots of them lack trial experience, and others are afraid that they don't have enough time or resources to handle a trial the right way. In short, they're more concerned about looking bad than they are about helping you win your case!
Unfortunately, there's also a big chunk of criminal attorneys in San Diego who simply believe in wrapping up all of their cases as quickly as possible, so that they can move onto the next paying client. (It's that "assembly line" mentality I just mentioned!)
I don't believe in working that way. If it's best for your specific case to go to trial, then that's exactly what we're going to do. I won't be afraid to stand up in a courtroom and fight for you. I've gone into court countless times -- and won. In fact, feel free to read about some of my latest cases. I promise you'll like what you see!
— I'm a winner at the negotiating table. In some cases, going all the way to trial just doesn't make sense. If that's true for your case, you can rest easy knowing that you're going to have a passionate advocate at the negotiating table. I've spent countless hours negotiating for charge reductions, flexible probation, elimination of jail time, and even outright dismissals. Remember, I've negotiated from BOTH sides of the table before, so I know exactly what it takes to be tough and fair.
— I charge reasonable fees. With everything you've read about me so far, you probably think my services are going to cost you an arm and a leg. But that's simply not true! My fee structure is reasonable and fair -- a far cry from what you'll get at some San Diego criminal attorneys' offices!
Bottom line -- the San Diego criminal lawyer you hire will determine where your life goes from here. Will you get lost in the criminal justice maze? Will you get punished for something you didn't do? Will you wind up with a harsher punishment than you deserve?
Pick the wrong lawyer, and any of these things can happen to you. I'll do everything in my power to make sure they don't.
