"I've hired about 10 attorneys over the past 20 years for all types of cases (family, civil, HOAs, criminal) -- and she is the best - no question about it - I even sat in court to watch how attorney's work. Lucy is sharp, quick, knowledgeable, skilled, experienced, compassionate, and tough -- but most of all -- Lucy does what it takes - without hesitation. I've seen her in court and I haven't seen anyone yet in civil or family court that could come close to her. What really caught my eye was the description on her website: "experienced, aggressive and diligent criminal defense attorney of proven success."

I found this first hand to be the truth. Lucy and her staff worked in the background on my case and provided updates all along the way -- I didn't need to talk with Lucy 24x7 -- I didn't hire Lucy to hand-hold me -- needing her attention 24x7 was not my problem. If you only hear what you want to hear, then you might miss out on some excellent legal advice -- especially if you don't know the law -- but if you have a legal issue and you need to trust an attorney to guide you -- with compassion -- you want to work with Lucy. I recommend Lucy and her staff, enthusiastically -- and I'll hire her again in a heartbeat."--Chris Z, Saratoga CA

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I became a criminal law attorney because I believe everyone is entitled to be treated fairly and I am willing to stand up for others to support that belief.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

In addition to my criminal law practice, I have extensive judiciary experience in Santa Clara County, having served as Judge Pro Tem in Small Claims Court and in Mediation and Arbitration in Santa Clara and as Santa Clara County Fee Arbitrator.
I have taught at University of San Francisco Law School Summer Trial Advocacy Program.
