Protecting San Jose Clients From Serious Consequences

Gregory Alonzo is an experienced San Jose criminal defense attorney who understands the inherent fear and uncertainty that arise if you have been charged with a crime. Whether the charges are minor or major you need information — and fast.

The U.S. Constitution declares that any person accused of a criminal offense has fundamental rights, starting with the right to a lawyer. If you are facing potential criminal charges or arrest, it's easy to feel alone and helpless. I strongly believe that no matter the nature of the charges, everyone deserves a vigorous and aggressive defense.

A criminal charge of any kind warrants sound legal advice from a qualified criminal defense attorney and may provide the only chance of securing the best possible outcome. A criminal conviction can have immediate and long-lasting physical consequences, including incarceration, probation and fines. A conviction can also damage your relationships as well as impact your future employment prospects.
