San Mateo County Criminal Defense Lawyer

Before embarking on a journey of more than 35 years as an experienced San Mateo County criminal defense attorney, Chuck Smith, Attorney at Law, was a boxer.

Several years ago, during his stint as a district attorney, he was still boxing on the side. The spillover from one profession to the other is apparent in his hard-hitting tactics in the courtroom.

Redwood City Criminal Law Attorney Chuck Smith Has a Hard-Hitting Reputation

While lawyer Chuck Smith's name is well known throughout the criminal law community for his affinity for detailed research and his strong commitment to defending his clients, it is the personal level of attention and his willingness to develop individualized strategies that lead to the wealth of referrals he has received.

Chuck began his career with the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office in 1978 and, within two years, he was promoted to the Major Crimes Unit, which laid the foundation for the level of high-quality experience he applies to his current cases. He tries five to 10 cases to verdict each year, which is more than most lawyers can say. The bulk of his cases are not tried simply because he prepares every case as if a trial was the only option. This sets the scene for the best possible outcome in each case.

By devoting more than 35 years to the practice of criminal law, Chuck is able to work with clients who are facing everything from domestic violence to DUIs to sex crimes to insurance fraud and more.

By using plain language and speaking to his clients openly and honestly, he has found himself serving as a popular legal commentator and analyst on local and national television, including CNN, CBS, "Larry King Live" and "Good Morning America."
