As a founding partner at Barth Daly LLP, Kresta N. Daly is committed to representing clients in Sacramento, California. She focuses her practice on handling criminal defense cases that involve the following matters: sex crimes, sexual misconduct allegations, domestic violence, white collar crime and federal crimes.
After earning a Bachelor of Arts in history and rhetoric from the University of California, Davis, in 1991, Ms. Daly went on to receive a Juris Doctor in 1998 from the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law. She later furthered her education at the National Criminal Defense College, graduating in 2008.
Having decades of experience representing people accused of a crime, Ms. Daly provides comprehensive representation through every phase of the legal process. She understands how stressful the situation may be for her client and takes the time to explain the options. Ms. Daly ensures that her client knows how his or her case is proceeding and provides sound counsel on which steps to take next.
Throughout her career, Ms. Daly has brought more than 60 cases to verdict in federal and state courts. She successfully defended a client who had been accused of rape, getting the charges dismissed. In another case, she represented a public official who had been accused of embezzlement. The charges were reduced to a misdemeanor for which the defendant did not have to serve time.
For her accomplishments, Ms. Daly holds an Avvo "Superb" rating, and the Sacramento Business Journal named her to its Best of the Bar and as one of its "40 Under 40."
A published author and frequent lecturer, Ms. Daly is a member of the Federal Bar Association, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, California Women Lawyers, Women Lawyers of Sacramento and the Sacramento County Bar Association.
