With over 30 years of experience, David Kaloyanides brings a wealth of trial experience to defending each of his clients. Whether the case involves Grand Jury investigations, drug charges, violent crimes, or white collar crime such as bank and wire fraud, criminal tax cases, criminal copyright infringement, Mr. Kaloyanides's expertise in criminal defense helps clients get through their ordeal.

Mr. Kaloyanides is Certified Specialist in Criminal Law, certified by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization.

Mr. Kaloyanides gives each client's case personal and individualized attention. This client-focused approach means helping clients understand their options, identify their goals, and fight to achieve those goals. To achieve the best outcome, each case receives the benefit of a knowledgeable and experienced defense team. But no matter what the case, Mr. Kaloyanides personally handles the representation for each client.

Every case is different. Every client is different. However, there is one common thread in all criminal cases: the case comes down to what the prosecution prove from the evidence. Only after fully understanding the evidence can any lawyer provide the advice and counsel to a client on what is the best course of action. This takes thorough evaluation of the prosecution's evidence, investigation into that evidence, and determining what the evidence shows and what it doesn't show. Then Mr. Kaloyanides works with his clients to decide on the best course of action for them: attacking the case, negotiating a resolution, or going to trial.
