A Strong Advocate When the Stakes Are High:

Individuals found to violate a criminal law are subject to fines, imprisonment, probation and community service, among other penalties. The outcome of any criminal case depends on the facts surrounding the crime charged, the strength of the evidence, the legal validity of law enforcement and courtroom procedure, and the goals and strategy of the government and defense. Attorney Mike Brewer will navigate you through this complicated legal process.

Verdict and Settlement Information:

Southern California criminal defense lawyer Mike Brewer attests that hard work, compassion and attention to detail is the foundation to every successful verdict he achieves, and this can be evidenced by his exceptional defense results:

  • Successful defense of a man who allegedly murdered his brother-in-law by stabbing him in the back during a drug-induced haze, in what was called the Woodstock Murder Case.
  • Successful defense of a Long Beach school bus driver on charges of vehicular manslaughter and fleeing the scene, after she ran over and killed the brother of a police lieutenant. Mike Brewer's lengthy investigation and accident reconstruction proved that it was only an accident, resulting in a "not guilty" verdict.
  • Successful defense of a third-strike defendant, who allegedly committed a take-over armed robbery of a business, even though being found driving the getaway car, with the gun and stolen property inside, made him at first appear guilty.

Trust Your Lawyer - He Represents You, Not the Police:

If you have been arrested, or if you are stopped by the police for questioning, remember that your lawyer is the person you should trust. Law enforcement investigators are specifically trained to get people who don't want to talk to them to open up and talk with them anyway. Politely, but firmly tell the officers, agents or detectives that you will need to retain an attorney before you can speak with them. Do not answer their questions. This cannot be stressed enough.
