Sal worked as a prosecutor for the Orange County District Attorney from 1982 through 1986. This experience gave him the opportunity hone his courtroom litigation skills and to learn firsthand how the police and the prosecution build a case.
Sal has been successfully defending criminal cases since opening his law office in 1986. His practice has attracted many high profile cases that have been featured on national television and in the print media. But mostly, he fights for and protects the rights of everyday, hard working people who need his help.
