Sex Offense Representation
Michael Chastaine has also distinguished himself as a premier sex offender attorney in the Sacramento area. With decades of experience representing sex offenders and persons accused of sex crimes, Michael is well versed in the specific issues faced by those accused of child molests, prostitution and other sex related offenses, both in State and Federal Court.
Dedicated to Protecting Your Rights
Michael’s approach is simple; “We help you get your life back.” Being involved in the Court system can be overwhelming. Being accused of criminal conduct can be frightening and confusing. Even innocent people can be arrested, incur loss of income and reputation, and suffer the risk of lengthy incarceration.
The criminal justice system is an adversarial system. If someone is accused of a crime, they need a strong attorney who is not afraid to take on law enforcement. They need an aggressive advocate who knows how to protect their rights, fight the system, and present the evidence that is most favorable to their position.
At The Chastaine Law Office, they truly care what happens to their clients. Their number one job is to help resolve their legal problems so that they can get their life back on track.
Based in Gold River, The Chastaine Law Office provides uncompromising, innovative legal advice and representation to people throughout the Sacramento area who have been charged with criminal misconduct in Sacramento, Placer County, El Dorado County, Yolo County, Rancho Cordova, Folsom, Orangevale, Granite Bay, Roseville and other surrounding areas in California.
