Sacramento County Criminal Defense Attorneys


When you face criminal charges, the justice system already has their eyes set on taking away your freedom and constitutional rights. That's why you need a powerful defense team if you, or a loved one, is being accused of a DUI, sex offense, white collar crime or any other criminal offense.

The Chastaine Law Office is that team. We address your legal needs with aggressive, yet compassionate legal representation. Hardworking and passionate, we have an intense desire to provide creative solutions for difficult problems. Mike and his team take the time to listen to you, analyze the issues and explore all legal options.

A criminal conviction can be devastating. Even an arrest record can prevent someone from getting a good job or finding decent housing if a potential employer or landlord runs a background check. The Chastaine Law Office wants to help you avoid this type of situation.

With over 32 years of experience, Mike Chastaine has established a reputation as one of California’s preeminent criminal defense attorneys. In recognition of his work, Mike has been selected by his peers to the Best Lawyers and Best Law Firms in America list and the Super Lawyers list for the past 10 consecutive years, among many other prestigious accolades and awards.
