The Gagen McCoy Difference
The fight begins the moment a client walks through the door. We utilize experienced investigators to track down the facts. We have an attorney solely dedicated to crafting legal motions that expose constitutional violations, mishandling of evidence and flaws in the prosecution’s case.
We work with top medical specialists and forensic experts to flesh out the truth so we may present the whole story to the prosecution, judge and jury that goes beyond one-sided and incomplete reports. Through discussions with the prosecution, we advocate on behalf of our clients in an effort to avoid the filing of charges or, if charges are filed, to have them reduced or dismissed.
“Gagen McCoy…has made a strong commitment to criminal defense. In an era in which most private criminal defense attorneys work as solos or in small firms, Gagen McCoy is something of an anomaly, with five of its 20 attorneys focused on criminal law.”
The Recorder, February 17, 2005

We pride ourselves on our ability to apply the right set of legal resources to the problem, and to get the job done quickly, correctly and at a reasonable cost.
