Attorney Profile

I am a true believer in the defense of people accused of crimes. I will focus on you as a person and achieve the best results for you and your family. You will never be just a case number or a file – no matter how big or small your case is. I will take the time to carefully listen to you and prepare a plan for your case that integrates my expertise and your goal. I will help you and your loved ones through your legal problems.


I have been working for all clients for almost 20 years, as a lawyer, and over 30 years in the office. My clients and their families have continually appreciated my attention and expertise that I have applied to their unique situations. I achieve the results that my clients want – dismissals, best plea bargains, not guilty verdicts.

I began working for my father, Robert Beles, when I was in high school – after school and during vacations. In college, I continued to work for the office, sometimes coming home weekends to assist in Dad’s cases. I started there from the bottom level – answering phones, organizing files and doing whatever grunt work was needed to assist our clients. I believe that this experience gave me a firm grasp of what is needed to help our clients through their legal problems.

I was born and raised in Oakland, California. I went to public schools for grammar and middle schools and then graduated from Holy Names High School in 1990. I attended University of California at Santa Cruz and studied sociology and English Literature there. I went to University of Exeter in the United Kingdom and took law and literature courses there. I graduated from U.C. Santa Cruz in June 1994. I immediately entered law school at the University of San Francisco School of Law.

I did not choose to become a lawyer because my dad is a lawyer. I chose to practice criminal defense because it is what I believe in – it is my true vocation. If you have a problem, I will find a solution.

In 2007, the State Bar of California certified me as a criminal law specialist – I was recommended by lawyers and judges, took an examination and acquired the necessary trial experience in order to achieve this certification.

I have been successfully representing criminal defendants for almost 20 years. I take pride in paying attention to the entirety of the client, the legal arguments, the factual investigation, the goals of the client, the comfort of the family and the end result. I personally handle all of my cases and I have tried almost forty serious felony trials, including 20 homicides. I achieve results for you and your family. I apply my experience and knowledge equally from the smallest traffic infraction to the special circumstance murder trial. I am honored to defend my clients and their families when they are under attack from the government.
