Trusted attorney seeks dismissals, exoneration, and fair plea deals

At Law Office of Chitra Ramanathan, I represent clients in state courts. I take on charges ranging from minor offenses and misdemeanors to more serious felonies. My experience as a public defender results-oriented approach is intended to help clients move past the difficulty of their criminal charges and onto the next chapter of their lives, whether that comes through the charges being dropped, a not-guilty verdict at trial, a favorable plea agreement, or an expungement of a prior conviction. I consider and advise each client on the collateral consequences a charge may have on that client’s unique immigration or employment circumstances.

My firm may provide counsel and representation for clients charged with:

  • Violent crimes — I build self-defense arguments and other thorough legal responses to assault, domestic violence and other violent crime charges.
  • Drug violations — My firm handles charges having to do with the possession, distribution and cultivation of illegal substances. My goal is to help clients avoid harsh penalties.
  • Theft — During negotiations with prosecutors and in court, I respond to larceny, robbery and other theft charges.

I defend individuals against a wide range of accusations.  Once I accept a case, I address any challenges that arise. At Law Office of Chitra Ramanathan, I am committed to seeking the justice you deserve. Through thoughtful preparation and strict attention to detail, my efforts focus on achieving the best possible outcome for you. I speak with witnesses, comb through police records and thoroughly examine the alleged crime scene, if necessary. I may also bring in experts who challenge the prosecution and help me prepare trial strategy.
