Jared Winter

(510) 903-8090

I have devoted my entire legal career to criminal defense.

As a former public defender, I have handled THOUSANDS of criminal cases ranging from simple matters (like driving without a license) to serious and violent felonies including murder, child molestation, and other charges that have the potential to put someone away for life.  I have the courtroom experience to do all of the following:

  • get your case dismissed
  • negotiate a favorable plea agreement for you that, in many cases, does not involve any jail time
  • aggressively pursue pre-trial motions that may weaken the prosecution's case
  • defend your rights in jury trial

Many lawyers talk tough, but secretly cower at the thought of actually doing a jury trial.  I am prepared and eager to go as far as it takes to defend your rights.  Take a moment to look at some of my Case Results in the courtroom.

  • A complete and swift dismissal

    I don't write reviews, yet I feel I need to put this somewhere some poor, lost soul may actually see it, because choosing an attorney is a tough decision. Mr. Winter is a clear and concise communicator in person and in the courtroom. His demeanor and expertise were a constant reassurance duri...
  • Knows how to get results

    Mr. Winter is an impressive attorney in court. When I met him he seemed like a nice guy, real unassuming and collected. He knows how to get results, and he did it well. When it was time to negotiate the case he did it with confidence, but it was backed by reputation. And when it didn't work out ...

  • Highly recommended

    I would highly recommend Jared to anybody in need of legal help. I had a special case where I couldn't get a public defender at the time, but it was well worth getting Jared.
