What to consider when selecting a criminal defense attorney in Carlsbad:

Years of experience

Marc A. Duxbury has been practicing law since 1989 when he was admitted to the California State Bar. He built his practice himself, one case at a time, and developed a reputation as a leading lawyer through his relentless commitment to providing excellent legal advice to his clients and representing them properly in court.

Negotiating deals

A very high percentage of cases are resolved through negotiation or “plea bargaining” as opposed to going to trial. A good criminal defense lawyer must have excellent negotiation skills as well as deep knowledge of the law in order to secure the best deal for his or her client. This is an area of great strength at the County Law Center.

Commitment to your case and your constitutional rights

The right to legal representation is a key element in our society that helps balance power between law enforcement and individuals. County Law Center has a deep seated belief in this concept and will fight to make sure your rights are respected and you are provided with the protection they afford you.

Customer service

Successful lawyers are busy, but that doesn’t mean Marc and his team don’t return calls or treat you with the basic respect and courtesy everyone deserves. Following the golden rule of treating others the way you want to be treated is at the heart of the County Law Center’s philosophy and is what clients can expect.
