We provide high-quality legal defense for clients facing criminal prosecution for any misdemeanor or felony charge. We have successfully defended all manner of criminal cases, from petty theft to the most serious felonies. While our clients come from all walks of life, they all have one thing in common: the need for talented and aggressive representation in the courtroom.
Every person - no matter what the charge - deserves the best defense available. We promise never to take the easy way out; never to put anyone else's interests ahead of the client's; and never to give up your right to a trial by a jury of your peers unless the state is willing to give you something valuable in return. More than ninety percent of all licensed attorneys will retire from the practice of law without ever trying a case before a jury. Izaak has tried many dozens of cases before California juries and obtained exceptional results for his clients. Oftentimes just having the willingness and ability to hold the state to their burden of proof at trial is enough to shift the outcome of a case.
No matter your situation, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A HOPELESS CASE. Whether you believe you are guilty of a crime or not, do not go to court and plead guilty without talking to an attorney who knows how criminal cases can be defended. The penalties for a criminal conviction can be severe and affect you for the rest of your life. Our consultations our free and confidential, and we can usually see a client the same day they call. Call (707) 595-4414.
Driving Under the Influence / DUI
As the former lead prosecutor for the Sonoma County District Attorney's office's federally-funded DUI prosecution unit, no one knows the inside workings of a DUI better than Izaak Schwaiger. He has prosecuted and defended hundreds upon hundreds of driving under the influence cases of every kind, including the most serious felony DUIs.
If you have been arrested for a DUI, you need to act fast. If you do not demand a hearing from the California DMV within ten days of your arrest, you will forfeit your drivers license. Retaining a good lawyer early with the right kind of experience with DUI cases can make all the difference in the world. We have defeated prosecutions for all manner of DUI charges, including felony DUI and DUI causing death or injury, and we have saved numerous clients' drivers licenses from suspension and revocation. Contact our office for a free and confidential meeting with Mr. Schwaiger. Call (707) 595-4414.
Police Brutality / Civil Rights
Every year in California, thousands of people are wrongfully arrested for "resisting arrest." Usually the arrest happens when a law enforcement officer overreaches their authority and a civilian questions that action, or refuses to submit. Years ago, such defiance in the face of government oppression would have been viewed as a virtue. Today, challenging the police can and will get you thrown in jail.
You'll receive no justice in the courts unless you are willing to stand up for yourself and fight back. That's where we come in.
Attorney Izaak Schwaiger has an unparalleled record of success defending people accused of resisting the police. From the trial of political protestor Ramon Cairo, to the dismissal of eight counts of resisting arrest and assault on correctional deputies on the eve of Esa Wroth's jury trial and the subsequent civil rights lawsuit in federal court, Izaak's results are as numerous as they are unparalleled.
We became lawyers to make a difference, to fight for those who could not fight for themselves, to take on the hardest cases, and to hold back the rising tide of police abuse in our communities. Call for more information. (707) 595-4414.
