Barbara Hope O'Neill, Attorney
Barbara Hope O'Neill
I began my criminal defense career in 1982 in the Fresno County Public Defender's office. My experience began on the misdemeanor team defending and taking to trial a full range of criminal cases such as DUIs, thefts, traffic offenses and batteries.
After a short stint on the misdemeanor team, I was assigned to a felony team handling every type of felony case including drug crimes, sexual assault, domestic violence and property crimes. Four of my years on the felony team were spent exclusively defending homicides. In 1997, I left the public defender's office to open my own firm. My practice now includes federal as well as state criminal cases.
With almost three decades of experience in criminal defense, I have learned that one of the most important traits a defense attorney can possess is the skill to negotiate and, thereby, to achieve the best outcome for the client.
