Summary

WELCOME. For those seeking a Bay Area DUI and criminal defense lawyer, welcome! I am the Founding Partner of the Law Office of Ghazal Sharif. I defend good people facing DUI and criminal charges in 7 counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara and Solano.

FIRM PHILOSOPHY. As a former prosecutor and passionate defense lawyer, I am results driven and client focused. I offer results, move for dismissals, fight for reduced charges and negotiate plea deals. I do what is best for my clients because my clients’ wins are my wins. I put myself in my clients’ shoes by thinking about their experience when they first inquire about my legal services, book an initial consult, move through the intake process, create payment plans, prepare defenses, challenge evidence, negotiate with prosecutors and finally, resolve their case.

FIRM SPECIALITY. I aspire to be the go–to lawyer for the toughest cases. I am often hired by clients with make–or–break matters, including undocumented immigrants, commercial drivers, licensed professionals, military service members and drivers under 21.

PRICING. My primary goal is to make my fees affordable. Because being arrested and charged with a crime is often unplanned, I work with clients to create affordable and reasonable payment plans to take care of legal fees.

CONTACT. Call or text 925–768–7718 for a free case review or visit www.DUIOnDemand.com for more information. You have nothing to lose by calling to speak with a lawyer about how to defend against criminal charges.
