Peter Blair was an outstanding lawyer. I was thoroughly impressed with his knowledge and commitment in getting the best possible outcome in my case. I had gotten into a car accident and was charged with a DUI after blowing a .086. Peter was able to get all charges dismissed. During this incredibly stressful time he was also thoughtful and caring to my feelings and was able to ease my stress and assured me that he would do what it takes to get the best possible results. I am truly thankful I chose him as my attorney and would highly recommend him to anyone.

We’ll Fight to Protect Your Rights

You have certain rights that, no matter what, must be respected. Unfortunately, law enforcement officers don’t always toe the line. Mistakes are made, grey areas are exploited in the state’s favor. The state cannot be permitted to benefit from a violation of your rights. 

Blair Defense will dig deep and analyze every aspect of your encounter(s) with the state. We’ll determine if there were problems with your initial stop or arrest, searches of you or your property, or red flags in your conversations with the police. If and when we find a problem, we will work tirelessly to prevent prosecutors from using it – or tainted evidence – against you. We’ll stand up for you and demand that the arrest and/or evidence be cast aside, or that the case against you is dismissed immediately.

Why Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney?

The odds aren’t stacked in your favor. Prosecutors handle cases like yours every day. Hiring an experienced and reputable San Diego criminal defense attorney puts you on level footing. Your attorney will not only have access to resources that you don’t, they’ll be able to apply everything they’ve gained over the course of their career as they build a strategic defense on your behalf.

Should I Cooperate With the Police?

It’s not your job to help the police or prosecutor build a case against you. So, as a general rule of thumb, it’s best to be polite but decline to have any conversations without our attorney present. The police (and the district attorney assigned to your case) will only be trying to get you to say or do something incriminating. And, as you’ve heard a million times on legal dramas, anything you say can (and will) be used against you. Just let your attorney do the talking.

When Should I Call a Lawyer?

As soon as you can after you’re arrested. This is true, whether or not you’re charged with a crime right away. Getting an attorney into the mix quickly can increase the chances of walking away with a favorable outcome. Your defense lawyer can handle conversations with the police, help you negotiate and/or secure bail, and be by your side during your arraignment hearing.
