If you're facing criminal charges, your freedom and future are at risk. Choosing the right lawyer means deciding whom you can trust to protect your rights and your interests.

Ron Cordova defends individuals facing state or federal criminal charges. With unparalleled experience as a former prosecutor and a premier California defense attorney, Ron has helped countless clients through their legal issues, often avoiding jail time or even a conviction that can destroy a promising future.

Few other criminal defense attorneys in Southern California can match the depth of experience and knowledge of the criminal justice system that Ron Cordova offers his clients. He has earned the prestigious AV rating in a peer review process and has been selected eleven times since 2007 as a Southern California Super Lawyer. Newsweek magazine has named Ron Cordova as one of the top attorneys in the United States in 2011, 2012 and 2013 and OC Metro Magazine has recognized him as one of Orange County's top five criminal defense lawyers every year since 2009.

As a member of the California Legislature from 1976 to 1978, Ron served as vice chairman of the Assembly Committee on Judiciary and was a member of the Select Committee on Corrections as well as the Joint Committee on Revision of the Penal Code. Since leaving the state legislature, Ron has dedicated 39 years to a legal career as a criminal defense lawyer committed to working personally and individually with every client.

Ron is supported by attorney Allyson Rudolph, who brings impressive skills and dedication in representing individuals accused of DUI, drug offenses and domestic violence to the firm's criminal defense practice. Her commitment to protecting the interests of clients through aggressive representation and compassionate support reflects the firm's ideals.
