Secure Professional Legal Advice Today

At The Law Office of Barney B. Gibbs, we believe that no Dana Point resident should face charges without a competent and dedicated attorney on their side. Typically, when a defendant cannot afford an attorney, he or she will be assigned a public defender, a lawyer with a large case load and little interest in your particular case.

In an effort to ensure everyone can attain effective counsel, we offer payment plans and other financing options. However, the legal system moves quickly. The longer you wait to employ the services of an accomplished criminal lawyer , the greater chance there is that you will be pressured into doing something that isn't in your best interests.
