Criminal / Drug Defense Lawyer Roy Dominguez

Bad acts don't make us bad people. All of us, at one time or another, have done something we're not proud of. Sometimes we don't get caught, or it doesn't have significant consequences. Other times, it can lead to some serious trouble. Whether you made a bad choice or been falsely accused, we can help.
