Marin Criminal Law Attorney: On Your Side – Fighting For You.

Experienced CA Criminal Defense Lawyer for San Rafael, Marin County

Being accused, arrested, or charged with a crime, no matter how minor, can be a frightening and confusing experience. It is important to understand how an arrest, and the penalties stemming from a conviction, can impact your life and future. It is also important to understand your Constitutional rights and to have an experienced local attorney on your side fighting for you.

As a firm believer that everyone is entitled to the vigorous defense justice demands, I, attorney Ryan Albaugh, offer experienced criminal defense representation for people facing charges in San Rafael, Sausalito, Greenbrae, Larkspur, Mill Valley and across Marin County. As a former Marin County Deputy District Attorney, I have the criminal defense knowledge and experience necessary to help you understand the charges against you, the options you have to fight against them and what you may be able to expect during our case.  If you have been charged with a crime, do not face the justice system alone. Protecting you and your criminal record is of utmost importance to me.

Knowledgeable, Experienced Marin County Criminal Law Attorney

I spent the first six years of my career as a prosecutor in the Marin County District Attorney’s Office.  During that time I appeared before most of the Marin County Judges and trained and worked alongside many of the prosecutors.  My experience gives me an understanding of how the District Attorney’s Office approaches cases and the methods that will be used to prove guilt to a jury.  As such, I am uniquely qualified to represent you during negotiations with the prosecutor, hearings with the judge, and argument of our case to a jury.

I also have substantial experience as a San Rafael criminal defense lawyer, having spent the bulk of my career defending the rights of people accused of committing crimes.  My work both as a prosecutor and a defense attorney has made me very knowledgeable about legal and illegal police procedure, and the habits of area law enforcement agencies. If I determine any of your rights have been violated during your arrest or the investigation prior or subsequent to your arrest, I will use those facts to seek a dismissal of the charges against you.

Don’t Face The Criminal Justice System Alone – Contact a Criminal Lawyer Today

The mission of the District Attorney’s Office is simple – to aggressively prosecute people accused of committing crimes in Marin County. In doing so, prosecutors employ the resources of the government and rely heavily on the word and actions of police officers.  If you have been charged with a crime, do not speak to the police without first hiring a local experienced attorney; by cooperating with law enforcement, you may offer information that will be used to convict you.

Even convictions for a speeding ticket or a first offense DUI can leave you facing hefty fines and a license suspension if not handled properly – more serious charges can land you in jail or prison if you don’t act swiftly to develop the best defense possible.  It is important that you have an experienced and knowledgeable local defense attorney to tell your side of the story and fight for you.  My unique background and dedication to fighting for my clients makes me the attorney you need, want and should demand.  By hiring a local Marin criminal law lawyer who understands the system and the charges against you, you dramatically improve your chances of obtaining the best result possible in your case.
