Our practice focuses exclusively on state and federal criminal defense

Our concentration on criminal defense means that we are ready to help as soon as we hear from you. In a federal case, that can mean protecting your rights even before you are indicted on specific charges.

Our understanding of federal criminal defense practice and procedure can help you at every stage of a case from the initial investigation to sentencing. To learn more about our ability to protect your interests, contact a criminal trial lawyer at The Worthington Law Centre in Salinas or San Francisco.
