Criminal Defense

Personal Injury

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

I started clerking in a criminal defense firm in San Francisco and discovered an affinity for this area of practice. As to civil and personal injury litigation, I spent most of my elective course at Hastings in this area. I kept following the area after passing the Bar.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

When possible, the client should always be encouraged to assist in the process and/or self-help. It keeps clients educated and keeps costs to the client down.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

This arrangement is often used on small civil matters at a minimal cost.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

To whatever extent possible, I encourage clients to represent themselves, particularly through the small claims process. This is not a recommendation for criminal defense clients.

Victor Manuel Perez

The Perez Law Firm

I have been in private practice for twenty years.

I have been heavily involved in community affairs and am thus acutely aware of the pulse of the community, which helps litigation and advocacy skills.

I have a tendency to want to know everything about my case and thus am dedicated to the details prior to and during trial.

I believe myself to be considered an aggressive advocate. I am willing to zealously pursue the interests of my client.

Personal interests:

I like to travel with my wife. I also like to hunt, fish and attend sporting events.
