Criminal Law Attorney Serving Auburn And Placer County, California

Few things in life are more intimidating than the stigma of having a criminal record or the threat to freedom that a criminal conviction can pose. If you have been arrested, face charges or are the subject of a criminal investigation, the best defense of your freedom is to make good use of your right to an attorney.

My approach is to listen carefully to my client's side of the story, meticulously examine the evidence and then explain your best options in clear, common-sense language. Together, you and I then pursue your goals, whether through negotiation or at trial.

If you find yourself facing criminal charges, contact experienced criminal defense attorney Michael Thomas Lynch at 530-886-4006. An initial consultation is free.

I provide aggressive criminal defense services to adults facing a variety of criminal charges, including the following:

  • DUI/DWI: I provide representation to individuals who have been arrested for drunk driving at DMV hearings as well as in court. It is important to contact an attorney within 10 days of your arrest to request a DMV hearing. If you do not request the hearing within that time the hearing will be waived and your license will be suspended.
  • DMV hearings: Representation for seniors who have had their driver's license suspended or revoked.
  • Fishing and game violations: As a longtime fisherman and hunter, I know how serious these misdemeanor criminal charges can be. Take your defense against large fines and the loss of your fishing or hunting license just as seriously.
  • Probation hearings: I can represent you at your hearing.
  • Violent crimes: Assault and battery; domestic violence.
  • Theft, shoplifting & property crimes: Embezzlement; shoplifting, larceny, trespass, vandalism.
  • Fraud and financial crimes: Bank fraud, extortion, forgery, identity theft.
  • Drug crimes: Possession; distribution; sales.

An Example Of How I Help Clients

A client of mine charged in a domestic violence matter was facing four years in prison. With the cooperation of the court, the victim, prosecutors and my client, we were able to work out a plea agreement in which my client received probation with a 30-day home confinement. He was able to keep the house he had just purchased for his family and resume his life.

No attorney can guarantee probation or any other favorable outcome. What I can do is assure you that the legal skills that helped that client will be put to work for you to help you get the results you desire.
