Burlingame Criminal Defense Law Firm Fights Aggressively for Justice

Holistic approach protects your rights and creates opportunities for fair resolutions

For more than 30 years, criminal defense attorney Paula Canny has provided dedicated legal services to good people going through difficult times. Taking the holistic approach that Paula developed throughout her career, The Law Offices of Paula Canny fights aggressively for the rights of accused persons throughout California. Our strategy is to attack the prosecution’s case aggressively to expose any weaknesses we can exploit for our client’s benefit, while building a persuasive case for mitigation based on our client’s character and the circumstances surrounding the alleged event. By going on the offensive, our firm has had great success. Here are just a few examples of our strategies:

  • Raising reasonable doubt sufficient to acquit our client
  • Weakening the case against our client so much that the prosecution reduced or dropped charges
  • Persuading the court that mitigating factors argued in favor of clemency

Although not every case provides the opportunity to clear an accused person of charges, our firm searches relentlessly for any elements that might help us favorably resolve each case we undertake.
