A Strong Advocate In Sonoma County Criminal Cases

At Passalacqua & Passalacqua, LLP, there is no such thing as a minor criminal charge. If you face criminal charges, it is anything but a minor matter. We feel the same way, which is why we provide highly personalized legal counsel to every client no matter what charges they face.

We have served the Northern Bay Area community for a long time. Our father, Emil R. Passalacqua, founded the firm in 1976. Attorney Joseph R. Passalacqua, who represents clients facing misdemeanor and felony charges, has practiced law since 1988. Joseph has defended individuals against a broad range of charges, including:

  • Drunk driving, including felony DUI
  • Drug charges, including possession, trafficking, manufacturing and prescription fraud
  • Assault, domestic assault and other violent crimes
  • Sexual assault
  • Theft and embezzlement
  • Homicide and attempted murder

We Work To Minimize The Impact Of Charges On Your Life

Whether you face criminal charges for the first time or you have previous arrests on your record, the process is intimidating. A conviction may impact your job and your family life. You may even face incarceration. Informed decisions are essential. We keep you well-informed at every step and provide full explanations of your options. Knowing what is ahead, what choices you have and what the possible outcomes are will help you make smarter decisions.

We understand there is a lot of information that doesn't make it into a police report. We have the resources necessary to develop strong cases, including the latest technology and a network of highly regarded specialists who assist us with our investigations.

In addition, our thorough knowledge of constitutional law will ensure that your rights are protected at every step.

Put Our Experience To Work For You

We have extensive experience in local, state and federal courts across Sonoma Valley and much of Northern California. We have earned a stellar reputation among prosecutors, judges and other law enforcement authorities.

Our knowledge of the system allows us to frequently resolve criminal matters and minimize the impact of criminal charges on our clients' lives without the need to litigate. However, if a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiations, we are trial-tested lawyers who stand ready to defend you in court.
