Patricia Tilley law firm

With over 30 years of experienceI provide legal counsel to produce the best possible outcome in your criminal or dui case. Call me.
I graduated from the University of Connecticut with a BS in Nursing. I received a Master of Nursing Degree from the University of California, Los Angeles. I taught nursing on the baccalaureate level at U.C.L.A., Howard University in Washington, D.C. and the University of Nevada Las Vegas. I am a graduate of the University of San Diego School of Law. I have been an active member of the California State Bar since 1979. I am also a member of the Virginia State Bar.

I began practicing law in the Arlington,Virginia as an attorney with the U.S. Department of Labor. Later that year I returned to California and began a private practice. I worked as a Deputy District Attorney for Contra Costa County as a trial attorney and later worked in a very busy office of the Public Defender in San Francisco, California as a trial attorney.

I am an experienced trial attorney having tried misdemeanor and felony cases in public and private practice. I have also been on the criminal defense panels for Alameda County and Sacramento County. I've represented numerous parolees in parole hearings ( hearings before an administrative law judge for the Board of Prison Terms). I find that I prefer defense work, because it allows me to work at helping real people. I enjoy the personal contact.

As a member of the California Public Defender's Association I regularly attend seminars to remain on the cutting edge of our ever changing law.

Spanish Interpreter
The services of a spanish interpreter are available free of charge.
Competitive Fees
Our fees are competitive. Payment arrangements are available on a case by case basis. You are generally given a flat fee for specific stages of the proceedings. In misdemeanor cases there is a flat fee prior to trial and a separate fee if the case goes to trial. In felony cases you will be given a flat fee for attorney work through and including the preliminary hearing and a separate fee for work following the preliminary hearing and including trial. That keeps your costs down. If your case doesn't go to trial you don't pay for trial.
Private Investigator
The services of a private investigator are also available for a separate fee, should one be necessary.
