Committed To Achieving The Best Outcome For You
Hiring the right criminal defense attorney is one of the most important decisions you may ever have to make. It could mean the difference between a guilty verdict, accompanied by a heavy fine and prison time, or walking free with your liberty and your wallet intact.
At the Law Offices of Richard Weese I only have one goal, to successfully challenge the prosecutor’s case against you and secure the best possible result in your favor. So please, do not be put off when I say my approach to practicing law is aggressive. As your defense lawyer, my role is not to make friends, it is to ensure your rights are upheld, that you are treated fairly and that together, we achieve a positive outcome.
My Reputation Is Built On A Track Record Of Success
I have been a practicing attorney for over twenty years, ever since graduating from the Golden Gate University School of Law in 1998. Before setting out on my own, and opening the Law Offices of Richard Weese, I worked for two of the largest criminal defense firms in California, winning awards and establishing my reputation as a rigorous researcher, negotiator, advocate and litigator. Over that time, I have built up a strong knowledge of defense law, regularly presented legal updates to my peers, and ultimately took on the role of primary attorney.
From my office just outside of San Jose, I practice throughout Santa Clara County and The Bay Area, where I have a long history of achieving favorable results on behalf of my clients. That experience has resulted in a deep professional familiarity with the various jurisdictions, judges, DAs and law enforcement personnel in this part of the world. My focus is total, I research and craft my counsel meticulously, always planning for the best, while preparing for potential obstacles in advance. In more than two decades, it is a strategy that has been validated by a long list of satisfied clients.
