In criminal investigations, time is of the essence. The earlier we can preserve evidence, review the crime scene, and interview witnesses the better for you since it is less likely that important information will be forgotten, lost or destroyed. Adam Gasner’s criminal law experience and knowledge of the local court system provide his clients with results-oriented defense against the accusations of the government. Mr. Gasner works closely with a team of criminal defense lawyers, investigators and expert witnesses to provide sophisticated and aggressive representation to clients in the San Francisco bay-area, through out California and in federal courts nationwide.
The criminal justice system does not always live up to the ideal of justice for all. Justice should be blind, but it rarely is. The police department and the district attorney’s office have important roles and responsibilities in our society, but they sometimes fall short and make mistakes or get swayed by false assumptions with potentially disastrous consequences for the defendant. Sometimes even innocent people get sent to prison for crimes they didn’t commit.
Adam Gasner cares about his clients and works hard for the best possible outcome. He is fully committed to defending a client with perseverance and conviction. As an advocate, he is well regarded by the court for his brilliant legal mind and deep familiarity with legal procedures.
