Everyone Deserves A Criminal Defense, No Matter The Charges


Whether you are under criminal investigation or the state has charged you with a crime, you probably feel terrified. Your life hangs in the balance of a criminal justice system that does not always treat defendants fairly. Working with a skilled defense attorney to protect your rights is crucial.

I am attorney Valery Nechay. At The Law Office of Valery Nechay, I believe that everyone deserves a criminal defense. Whether you are a blue-collar worker or own a Silicon Valley startup, I will fight tirelessly to defend your rights.

I can defend you from any and all misdemeanors and felonies, including:

  • Assault and battery
  • Domestic violence
  • Drug possession and sales
  • Theft and burglary
  • Internet crimes
  • Three strikes cases
  • White collar crimes
  • Homicide

I also practice federal criminal defense. If you face a federal criminal charge, I have the experience, knowledge and tenacity to represent you.


My Goal Is To Get Your Charges Dropped

My statutory and practical knowledge of the criminal justice system and long-standing relationships with the district attorneys and judges help me to negotiate favorable deals for clients. In every case, my goal is to get the charges against you dismissed completely. Even if this is not possible, I work to obtain positive results like reduced charges, mitigated sentences or acquittals.

"Reaching out to Ms. Nechay was the only good decision I made during my run in with the law. I was arrested for urinating in public and public intoxication. She immediately dove into my case by learning local laws and jurisdiction in a state where she does not practice. She obtained my arrest report and Police car/body cam footage of the arrest. She found multiple discrepancies between the Police report and the actual events that unfolded. She quickly contacted the prosecutor who oversaw my case and convinced him to dismiss all charges before my appointed court date. I was required to inform my employer of the arrest and charges. Ms. Nechay provided several hours of her time to help coach me how to deal with that dicey process. I could not have asked for a better outcome both legally and with my employer. I am sincerely grateful for her diligent and effective efforts. If you find yourself requiring legal help, she is the attorney to call."
