The Law Office of Frances Prizzia Proudly Serving Westminster, CA

Westminster Criminal Defense Attorney

Experienced Defense Lawyer Serving Orange County

Once you are arrested for a crime, it is pretty much a given fact that prosecutors will hit the ground running in their efforts to build a convincing case against you. In fact, they undoubtedly already have at least some evidence that allowed them to make the arrest in the first place. When you have prosecuting attorneys working to get you convicted, you need to guard yourself with a qualified defense attorney who can stand up to the challenge. This is what we offer at the Law Office of Frances Prizzia.

Our Westminster criminal defense lawyer, Frances Prizzia, started her career serving in the Orange County Public Defender's office. She also has past experience working in the Los Angeles County Alternate Defender's office. This experience has proven to be highly valuable to her understanding of how law enforcement and prosecutors obtain and present evidence in criminal cases. Ms. Prizzia now works as an attorney who passionately defends her clients through private practice criminal defense.

Attorney Prizzia has successfully secured favorable verdicts at trial in various types of criminal cases, such as those stemming from DUI offenses, drug crimes, violent crimes, sex crimes, etc. She has secured case dismissals for clients charged with theft, brandishing a weapon, domestic violence and spousal abuse, to give a few examples. As a lawyer with a great amount of trial experience on her side, Attorney Prizzia knows how to strategically present the facts of a case in the courtroom. By viewing the lawyer's case results, it is clear to see that she has a history of reaching successful outcomes for her clients. Attorney Prizzia has the sharp legal skills that are needed for your case, whether you are looking to negotiate with prosecutors or fight your charges through trial.

Dedication to Client Satisfaction

Attorney Prizzia is not one of those lawyers who simply wraps up the legal details as quickly as possible so she can get her money and move onto the next case. It's actually the opposite—she truly cares about the well-being of her clients, and she makes sure to provide each person she serves with the time and attention that is needed for properly resolving the case. Attorney Prizzia's hands-on, client-focused tactics have earned her recognition within the legal industry. Avvo has distinguished her with its Clients' Choice Award in the area of criminal defense. Lawyers must have a certain number of top client ratings on their online Avvo profiles in order to qualify for this award.

Ms. Prizzia is a bilingual attorney who speaks both English and Tagalog fluently. Our law firm serves clients in Westminster and all other areas within Southern California.
