Years of Experience on Your Side

Sacramento Criminal Defense Lawyer

When your future depends on the outcome of a legal matter, it is important to consult with a lawyer regarding your options and how the law impacts you. The outcome of your legal situation depends on many factors, including the experience and competence of the attorney you choose. DO NOT be lulled into "unrepresented statements" made during initial investigative inquiries. These statements often compound and worsen your legal problems exponentially!

My clients get the benefits of my broad experience. I am Sacramento criminal defense and civil litigation attorney Dick Margarita, and my law firm is dedicated to protecting clients' rights and helping them obtain the best outcomes possible in their legal situation.

Experienced Criminal Defense Representation

I have more than 20 years of experience as an attorney. Prior to that, I worked in federal and local law enforcement for the DEA, FBI and Sacramento County Sheriff's Department. As a defense attorney, I now use this experience to zealously pursue my clients' interests when facing crimes, including:

Working to Successfully Resolve Civil Litigation Matters

The area of civil litigation requires strong problem solving skills as well as polished trial skills and investigative instinct. I have negotiated, settled and litigated a wide range of civil matters successfully, including:

  • Employment law matters, specializing in the representation of Law Enforcement Officers
  • Restraining Orders
  • Professional licensing issues (Physicians, Nurses, Dentists, Veterinarians and Pharmacists)

Business Investigative Consulting

When businesses are the victim of employee theft, fraud or other financial crimes, I provide business consulting services to deal with the situation and prevent future occurrences. Along with financial experts and other professionals, I investigate the losses and recommend a course of action, including litigation when necessary.
