Law Office of Steve Whitworth

When you are charged with a criminal offense and need a divorce attorney, you need a strong defense strategy. The keystone of any legal defense strategy is a driven, experienced criminal defense and divorce lawyer. Look no further than the Law Office of Steve Whitworth for honest, aggressive, reasonably priced criminal defense and family law representation. When you are facing penalties like incarceration, fines, probation, and the loss of certain rights and opportunities, invest in yourself by investing in competent legal representation.

Who I Am

I am a solo practitioner who represents clients throughout the greater Sacramento Area. My goal is to bring each case to a fair, reasonable outcome. Sometimes, that means going to trial and aggressively defending the client. In other cases, it means exploring alternatives within the criminal and family law justice system.

In addition to helping my clients avoid the criminal penalties that follow convictions, I am committed to helping them avoid the stigma of being convicted of crimes. The stigma of having a criminal record can negatively impact an individual’s personal and professional life, and when you are facing a false or erroneous charge, there is nothing more frustrating than having your life ruined by a criminal conviction. I also practice family law (Divorce Attorney) because often a divorce is part of a criminal charge or conviction and you need an Attorney that understands the complications of a divorce, child custody, spousal and child support when  these two life events meet each other.

What I Do

How I serve each client depends on the circumstances at play in the client’s case. When I go to trial to defend a client, I devote myself to crafting a defense strategy that will ideally result in the charge being lowered or dismissed. This includes:

  • Obtaining expert witnesses to testify on the client’s behalf;
  • Interviewing law enforcement and all other parties involved in the case to expose any lies or exaggerations that are skewing the narrative;
  • Negotiate with the prosecutors to reduce the client’s sentence;
  • Conduct a thorough pretrial investigation to determine whether any of the prosecution’s evidence was obtained illegally and if it was, move to have it tossed out;
  • Employ professionals whose experience and insight can aid the client’s defense; and
  • Work to have charges lowered or ideally, dismissed entirely.

I work with juvenile clients as well as adults.
