At the Law Office of Isaac Blumberg, we recognize that you have a choice in who you select to defend you against criminal charges.

While you might not think it is realistic that innocent people go to jail or prison, thousands of people are victimized by wrongful convictions annually. How does this happen? The criminal justice system puts the individual at a significant disadvantage. The state has the benefit of experienced and well-funded prosecutors presenting their cases to juries anxious to assume guilt. Without an experienced San Diego criminal defense attorney who has the resources to go to the mat against the government, your future can be placed in serious jeopardy.

Mr. Blumberg is not interested in the path of least resistance, which involves going along to get along with the assistant district attorney. Mr. Blumberg’s first priority when taking a case is to investigate realistic strategies for getting the charges dismissed or prevailing at trial. While diversion and other favorable plea agreements can constitute a positive outcome, Mr. Blumberg believes that these plea discussions should be founded on an effective trial strategy, so prosecutors understand the risk of losing if they refuse to agree to a plea bargain on his client’s terms.

Mr. Blumberg works with a team of investigators and experts prepared to take on the toughest cases. An effective defense often begins with an investigation into law enforcement misconduct and procedures. When searches are unlawful or confessions are obtained in violation of Miranda rights, Mr. Blumberg often files motions to suppress. When he gets key evidence excluded, this frequently results in the charges being dismissed by the government.
