San Mateo, California, Criminal Defense Attorney
I established the law offices of Philip S. Barnett in San Mateo in 1972. I do not have a staff of attorneys because my clients want me to personally handle their cases. I care about my clients, and I understand that being a defendant in a criminal case is enormously stressful. I try hard to understand what my clients are going through, to be supportive, and to give them the best representation possible.
Facing criminal charges is a frightening situation. You need the help of an aggressive criminal defense lawyer. Contact my offices in San Mateo for a free consultation about your criminal charges.
