Quiet Dispositions: The Cases That Never Make the Headlines

Despite a long list of popularized trials and achievements, when asked what he is most proud of, criminal defense attorney Adam G. Gasner says it’s the list of his “quiet dispositions,” the “cases that never make the headlines and where no one knows I am the lawyer — the hundreds of cases where careers, families, and reputations were on the line and I was able to negotiate results that saved jobs, kept families together, and protected against a lifetime of shame."

Gasner Criminal Law takes on the most challenging Federal and California State Court felony cases

GCL is directed and managed by San Francisco native Adam G. Gasner. Mr. Gasner is board certified by the California State Bar as a specialist in criminal law – a distinction held by fewer than 400 of the more than 250,000 practicing lawyers in the State of California.

If you’ve been arrested or investigated for a crime in the San Francisco Bay-Area, and you want help answering your pressing questions, contact GCL for a no-cost consultation. Adam Gasner will personally meet with you in an attorney-client privileged setting, where he will review the evidence, including any citations, police reports, and documents in your possession, determine the best defense options and recommend a preferred legal strategy.

In criminal investigations, time is of the essence. The earlier we can preserve the evidence, review the crime scene, and interview any witnesses, the better for you as it lessens the chances of important information being forgotten, lost, or destroyed. The firm’s criminal law experience and knowledge of the local court system provides its clients with the best results-oriented defense against the accusations of the government. We work closely with our team of criminal defense lawyers, investigators, and expert witnesses to provide sophisticated and aggressive representation to clients in the San Francisco Bay Area, throughout California, and in federal courts nationwide.

We care about our clients and work hard to achieve a successful outcome

Unfortunately, the criminal justice system does not always live up to its ideal of justice for all. Justice should be blind, but rarely is. Although law enforcement and prosecutors have important roles and responsibilities in our society, they can still fall short, make mistakes, or get swayed by false assumptions -- the consequences of which can be disastrous for the defendant. In the worst of cases, innocent people get sent to prison for crimes they didn’t commit.

We treat our clients with professionalism and compassion. All cases are confidential and we offer a no-cost initial consultation. GCL cares about its clients and works hard for the best possible outcome. We are firmly committed to defending our clients with conviction.
