Criminal Defense

We defend cases at the investigative, pre-trial, trial, and post-conviction stage. If you have been accused of a crime, contacted by the police, or already arrested and charged, you should consult with a criminal lawyer regarding your legal rights. The earlier you hire a criminal lawyer, the more likely you will not waive constitutional rights to which you are entitled, and which are there to protect the citizen from prosecution. A criminal lawyer can discuss with you your legal rights, and outline a strategy of defense. Criminal law is one of the most complex areas of the law and the stakes can be very high. You should have competent legal counsel to guide you.

The Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution protects you from self-incrimination. What this means, is you do not have to make any statements to the police. The Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution entitles you to a lawyer. The fact that these rights were enshrined in the Constitution makes clear how important they are.

If you believe you are being investigated, or you have already been arrested and charged, or even already convicted, contact our office today at (415) 770-0146 for a confidential consultation to see if we can assist you. Let us put our years of experience to work for you.

Client Reviews
Mr. Sullivan helped me out during a very difficult time for me personally, and I am very satisfied with the outcome. He, unlike other attorneys that I spoke to, wasn't dramatic or falsely enthusiastic, and that was reassuring. He was savvy and realistic, experienced, a listener, flexible and affordable. D. Client
Over the past two years I have experienced extreme legal difficulties. We were unable to get help from anywhere. Within 24 hours of contacting Matt, I felt that I had finally found someone who could assist me in working towards resolving our situation. I highly recommend Mr. Sullivan. B. Client
I hired Mr. Sullivan to represent me in my DUI trial. He fought hard for me in a very difficult case, which we won. I was very happy with his services. It was obvious he cared about me and my case. He is a real attorney who will stand up for you. M.R.
