Attorney Profile

San Jose Criminal Defense Lawyer - Alfredo Morales

San Jose, California


E-mail Me

I was born and raised in San Jose. I am a graduate of the University of Santa Clara and UC Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall). I have practiced law for over 30 years in Santa Clara County and have earned a positive reputation in the Santa Clara County legal community. I have successfully defended clients both in trial and in negotiated settlements.

In over three decades of work as a San Jose, California, attorney, every time I take on a new client, an old phrase again rings clear: every case has its own road. I know that each case has its own unique variables, making it crucial to investigate carefully and prepare the case methodically in order to achieve the best possible outcomes for defendants. The road isn't easy, which is why it's so important to have an experienced lawyer to represent you.

Ultimately the key to a successful outcome is investigation. In my decades of practice, I've developed a strong network of experts who gather all applicable information in a case with speed, efficiency and ease. From there I can work with clients to determine when to settle a case and when to go to trial. The decision to settle a case or take a case to trial, however, isn't one that should be taken lightly and should not be made until an attorney has completed a detailed review of the situation.
