Alice has over 12 years of experience in the exclusive practice of criminal defense. She has defended thousands of individuals, charged with both misdemeanors and felony offenses. Her years of experience has led Alice to successfully litigate both hundreds of pre-trial motions and dozens of jury trials.
As a former attorney with the LA County Public Defender’s Office—the oldest and largest public defender’s office in the country—Alice has handled thousands of cases and contested hearings.
Some of the charges she has handled or tried include: DUI, domestic violence, vehicular manslaughter, robbery, drug offenses, rape, sex crimes, child abuse, and homicide.
As a zealous advocate, Alice’s goal has always been to get the best possible outcome for her clients.
Even if no outright dismissal or acquittal wasn’t available, Alice has been successful at arguing for sentences that were superior to pre-trial offers. She has also successfully argued pre-trial motions, and has litigated preliminary hearings that resulted in either dismissal of charges or better offers.
Alice has also defended over 50 juvenile adjudications, in cases involving sexual abuse, robbery, and assault with a deadly weapon.
She is well-versed in the diversions available to clients; that is, alternatives to prison. These includes mental health diversion, veterans’ court, and women’s reentry and drug court. Alice has successfully argued for diversions on behalf of numerous clients, even over the prosecutors’ objections. When deemed necessary, she will litigate hearings for diversion, as well as thoroughly investigate your case to determine if diversion is an option.
