Among The Largest And Most Experienced Bay Area Criminal Defense Teams

Led by eminent criminal defense attorney William E. Gagen, Jr. and veteran litigator Michael J. Markowitz, the firm’s criminal defense and juvenile law team zealously protects the interests of our individual and entity clients at every stage of the criminal process. 

Drawing on a combined 90-plus years of practice in Bay Area criminal courts, our criminal defense team aggressively defends our clients long before the case ever gets to court. From pre-trial resolution to post- conviction relief, our dedicated attorneys offer our clients unequaled legal knowledge, advocacy, dedication and reputation.

“I think it would be safe to say that he is the preeminent private criminal defense attorney in the county.”

—Contra Costa County District Attorney Robert Kochly, describing William E. Gagen, Jr. to The Recorder, February 17, 2005
