Mr. Pytlik is a seasoned Criminal Defense attorney and former prosecutor with years of experience conducting trials and testimonial hearings. He was selected four times as a Northern California “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers, a designation awarded to no more than 2.5% of attorneys in the state.

He treats clients with respect and compassion, while vigorously fighting for their rights. Clients often comment that they appreciate his personal concern and friendly demeanor, as well as his poise and professionalism.

Mr. Pytlik earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Economy from the University of California, Berkeley. He then obtained his teaching credential and taught high school history. He received his Juris Doctor from Hastings College of the Law in 2004, where he was an editor of the Hastings International and Comparative Law Review.
