Practicing exclusively criminal defense and forfeiture seizure law since 1990. I started my career with Federal Defenders of San Diego. I was admitted to the Arizona State Bar in 1992 and have handled both state and federal matters in Arizona. Our firm is kept organized by our Spanish speaking certified paralegal, Layla Smith. We have an accomplished attorney in Jon Pettis who teams up with Dan Smith on every criminal case. Mr. Smith takes the lead on all felony federal cases and Mr. Pettis on state criminal matters which makes for a well balanced office located across the street from the Chula Vista Court House with free parking in front or behind the comfortable boutique law office from a converted cottage. We charge a flat fee rather than an hourly rate. Forfeitures have become more and more prevalent. We have litigated forfeiture cases in California, Arizona, Texas and beyond. We approach every case with the attitude that we will take it all the way to win and we offer payment plans to make it possible. Call us at (619) 258-8888 24 hrs to speak with Lawyer Dan Smith.
