What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
I can generally ask an efficient series of questions to obtain the relevant information needed to assess your case, e.g. How did you come in contact with the police? Did you make a statement? Did you consent to a search? Were there witnesses to the event in question?

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
What sets me apart is my extensive jury trial experience and record of consistently winning acquittals for my clients.

I previously participated in a Volunteers in Parole program to mentor juvenile offenders previously adjudicated of the most serious crimes as they integrate back into the community after serving extended periods of time at juvenile detention facilities.

  • Criminal Defense | Client was charged with five counts of rape by two separate child accusers where our client faced 175 years to life in Nevada State Prison. During trial, Michael Becker along with attorney Daniel Page questioned the credibility of the accusers as well as the sheriff's deputy on the case. After the week-long trial, the jury deliberated for only two hours before acquitting the defendant. | NOT GUILTY VERDICT ON ALL FIVE COUNTS. Criminal Defense | Clients were charged with a felony charge of "prohibited person in possession of a firearm" and misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession and paraphernalia possession.

San Jose Big Rig Attorney; Why You Need One
Large, heavy commercial trucks are some of the most dangerous vehicles on the road. The added weight of their cargo creates more momentum, which in turn causes more force during a collision. This leads to more serious injuries for the victims of a truck crash. There are many different types of truck accidents, but a jackknife accident is one of the most dangerous collisions a big rig can be involved in.
