Experienced Criminal Defense Attorneys in California

The experienced DUI and criminal defense attorneys at Hoffman & Associates handle all types of criminal misdemeanor and felony charges, including California DUI and drug charges and federal criminal drug charges. If you or someone you know is facing criminal charges, we can help by fighting for their rights and protecting their reputation.

We will work with clients who are simply facing an investigation, or have already been arrested for criminal charges of any kind. We handle DUI charges, theft & fraud offenses, as well as charges involving identity theft, drug possession & sales, domestic violence, assault & battery, juvenile matters as well as the full range of probation violations.

The skilled criminal defense lawyers at Hoffman & Associates have extensive experience defending the rights of people arrested and accused of all types of criminal offenses. We can work with you at every stage of the case, and sometimes even before an arrest is made. From the time we are retained as your legal representative, we begin preparing for trial. Our firm has over 30 years of courtroom experience dealing with arraignments, discovery and preliminary hearings.

We Fight For Your Rights

Our firm keeps abreast of current legal developments so that we can draft persuasive motions to suppress evidence along with any other necessary pre-trial motions. We are skilled negotiators who will explain a plea bargain if it is in your best interest and negotiate on your behalf after we obtain your consent. If a plea bargain is not an option, we are always prepared to go to trial and vigorously defend your rights in a court of law.

Although every case is unique, with early intervention from our firm, we can frequently convince the prosecutor not to file charges. In the absence of such an agreement, we can work with the prosecutor to find other creative solutions to traditional prosecution. These relationships we have developed with prosecutors are of great value to clients who are facing any type of criminal charge. Only an experienced criminal defense attorney should be by your side when you are facing serious charges and serious penalties.

Our clients always benefit from us obtaining positive evidence that shows they are innocent, or lacked the intent to commit an offense. Working with skilled defense attorneys makes all the difference when you are about to be charged with a crime. Contact us today to put 30 years of courtroom experience to work for you!

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I can't begin to thank Mr. Hoffman enough for his extensive efforts throughout the entire case. He went absolutely above and beyond throughout the entire process. From day one he was immediately actively pursuing ways to prevent my case from ever going to court and once that was no longer an option, actively began working on getting the case ultimately dismissed. His communication was consistent and reassuring, despite my frantic worries all the time... Micaiah Botts
★★★★★
My family and I simply owe our life and future to Ron Hoffman. If you are looking for a lawyer that goes above and beyond the call of duty you can't find a better lawyer than Ron. He took my case head on from the moment I called his office. I was involved in an accidental hit and run where I was unaware of the injury. Every step of the way, Ron guided me through an almost two year long investigation and court settlement process and was constantly by my side through out every crossroad... Bill Martin
★★★★★
Ron Hoffman and his staff were Fantastic when dealing with such a serious issue of DUI. When I first Called Ron I was very nervous and worried for my daughter and her freedom. She had a failure to appear on top of her DUI and I knew just how bad this could be. Ron was able to immediately put me at ease and gave me the confidence that there was hope and a light at the end of the tunnel. Ron was able to get the failure to appear dismissed and also no jail time for my daughter... Claude Brown
★★★★★
I have been working with Mr. Hoffman for over 11 years. I have seen first hand his genuine dedication to his clients, and how his experience, knowledge and passion have gotten clients fantastic results. He treats each of his clients as his only client, and takes the time to develop detailed strategies and defenses for each individual case. I have never hesitated to refer Mr. Hoffman to anyone who has asked me for a good Criminal Defense attorney. He is a fantastic attorney!... Neeta P.
★★★★★
I had a DUI issue recently. I have never had a problem with the law as serious as this one. I did panic a bit after and knew I had to get a lawyer to help my future. I researched the Web and read the reviews for awesome DUI Lawyers. Hiring a lawyer can be intimidating. Ron's 30 years experience and step by step guidance helped me with my case. Jonie was amazing with keeping me calm. Ron Hoffman is a great lawyer and I would refer any friends or family to him... Manuel Gomez
★★★★★
Ron was so accommodating and professional. With a Firm like his you wouldn't expect him to be as accessible, but he immediately returned phone calls, was easy to communicate with and was very sympathetic to my situation. He went above and beyond and was able to get a better result than I'd hoped or expected. I highly recommend Ron Hoffman and his firm. He made a difficult and anxiety fueled process bearable and made me feel safe. He is a lovely man. One does not wish to need a criminal attorney, but if you do need one, Ron's the guy to call... Teri A.
★★★★★
Ron and his team were the perfect pairing for what I needed taken care of. Every step of the way he was extremely helpful and informative (not his first rodeo). His work ethic and attitude were exemplary and it showed with the results of using his services. I would recommend anyone I know to give Ron a call if they need help in his realm of expertise. Many thanks Ron and associates!... Donald N.
★★★★★
I didn't hire a lawyer for my first DUI... What a mistake! Ronald goes above and beyond with his art and knowledge of custom strategy according to your case. lawyer of the year (every year)... Adam R.
★★★★★
I hate lawyers. They are hard to get a hold of, greedy and unreliable. Ron is the opposite of all these things. He deserves 6 stars, and I very much recommend him. He helped me through my case with nothing but kindness, understanding, and knowledge and eventually got it dropped. Thanks for everything Ron!... Avi Z.
