Primary Practice Areas Handled by the Law Office of Valery Nechay

The Law Office of Valery Nechay handles cases within a wide range of practice areas, including state and federal criminal defense, post-conviction relief, civil rights, asset forfeiture, restraining orders, and juvenile matters. 

State criminal charges are brought when those allegations occur within California’s jurisdiction and include a wide variety of criminal conduct, including domestic violence, drug crimes, sex crimes, murder, etc. My statutory knowledge of the law, experience working in the criminal justice system, and long-standing relationships with the district attorneys and judges gives me the ability to get the best deals in the courthouse.

Federal criminal charges are typically brought when the underlying allegations occur across state lines or are committed on federal property. These could include drug trafficking, cybercrime, white-collar crimes, bank robbery, bribery of an elected official, and other criminal offenses. 

I have been admitted to practice federal law and have successfully represented numerous clients in federal court on cases ranging from cybercrimes to homicides. When defending clients accused of those crimes, I will assess the facts and let you know what the best course of action is in order to get the best outcome. 

If you need representation in civil rights litigation, such as an excessive force or police brutality claim, my law practice can help. When fighting back against the government, you have to be armed with a zealous advocate that understands the steps necessary to secure your civil rights claim and obtain the relief you deserve. 

My law office can also help if your assets were seized by the government, and you require a forfeiture attorney to ensure you get your property back. An efficient asset forfeiture defense requires a skilled attorney with an understanding of the lengthy and intricate procedures and deadlines. That is the level of commitment and knowledge you can expect from me and my law firm. 

If you find yourself in a situation seeking a restraining order or if you are in need of defense against a petition for a restraining order, you need help from an experienced attorney. The Law Office of Valery Nechay can assist you in either case and with all of the types of restraining orders.

Juvenile defense is also something I can help you with. While juveniles can be tried as adults, they are also deprived of some critical rights. Because of my deep knowledge of California state criminal defense law and the juvenile justice system, I can personally guide your child and family through these difficult and sometimes, life-altering, events. 

Those individuals charged with a crime who do not have adequate legal representation could face serious consequences. Other San Francisco criminal defense lawyers may not have enough time to dedicate to your case and will often reassign your matter to other associates.

That is not a case with me. I personally invest the time necessary to investigate the facts and analyze which litigation tools and strategies can help me beat your case. I will fight to represent your interests every step of the way. My California criminal defense firm is unlike any other because I will not leave any stone unturned in my mission to get you the best result and vindicate your rights.
