We protect the accused. We defend the Constitution.
Taking away a person’s liberty is governmental power at its most raw. So at SSMS, fighting for the little guy also means defending the accused. We understand that innocent people get wrongly arrested and charged. We know that prosecutors routinely overcharge offenses to force guilty pleas. And we know that the criminal justice system is stacked against the underprivileged. Many of our most accomplished attorneys served as federal and state public defenders; opposing government overreach is part of our DNA.
For decades, our criminal defense lawyers have successfully defended clients all over the country. Though based in San Diego, we have tried criminal cases to verdict throughout California, Arizona, Florida, Nevada, New York, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and Utah—and the list is growing. When the stakes are highest, only the best will do. We are here to help.
