My Promise To You…

You can call me at any time. I am an experienced California criminal defense attorney with more than thirty years of experience in the California legal system. My phones are answered by a live, helpful, flesh-and-blood human being, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I will take whatever time is needed to discuss your case with you fully and thoroughly, for as long as you need and at no charge whatsoever. Only after thoroughly discussing your case can we jointly determine what legal actions should or should not be taken on your behalf.


No case is too big or too small. Every defendant deserves dedicated legal counsel. I’ve handled criminal cases ranging from shoplifting to murder. Too many attorneys who charge low fees plead their clients out on the first or second court appearance. I will not “dump” your case on your first or second court appearance by entering a “guilty” or a “no contest” plea. I will attempt to have your case dismissed prior to the charges being filed against you. If your charges have already been filed, I will attempt to have those charges reduced or dismissed entirely.


If your case goes to trial, I will seek a “Not Guilty” verdict. My skill and experience as a trial lawyer allows me often to obtain better results than the lawyers who simply “negotiate pleas” for their clients. I will keep you informed at all times regarding every aspect of your case, I will promptly return your calls, and I will always be frank and candid with you.

At the Law Offices of Jerry Nicholson, it’s understood that each client and case is different. Every client and prospective client is respected and every courtesy is extended. If you are charged with a misdemeanor or with a felony in southern California, whether you need immediate legal representation or if you simply need sound legal advice, obtain the help you need by speaking right away with an experienced California criminal defense attorney. Don’t wait to make the call.
