I’ve had my own practice for the last 4 years doing criminal defense. I chose this area of law because I started working in the Sacramento County District Attorney’s office several years ago after law school and interned with a State Attorney’s office in Florida during law school. While I was working with these agencies, I had the opportunity to see how the other side operates and learned that I was passionate about criminal law as a whole. After working at the District Attorney’s office I went on to practice civil litigation at a law firm in Los Angeles. After spending two and a half years at that firm, I realized that I missed practicing criminal law and I wanted to run my own practice so I opened The Nieves Law Firm and have been running my own firm ever since.
