    Attorney Profile

    After serving for years as a former federal prosecutor, attorney Nancy Kardon formed her law firm, Kardon Law, Inc., in 2006. Based in Denver, Colorado, the firm has an additional office in Torrance, California, and Ms. Kardon serves clients in both states by offering solid defense strategies against a wide range of state and federal criminal charges.

    Since founding her private practice, Ms. Kardon has established herself as a passionate advocate for her clients' rights and liberties. Through her belief that everyone accused of a crime deserves the best defense possible, she has earned a reputation for taking on tough cases that other lawyers shun.

    Having served 11 years as a federal prosecutor, Ms. Kardon has a unique perspective on both sides of the criminal justice system, and she uses this experience to devise aggressive defense tactics that achieve positive results for her clients. As a defense attorney, she focuses primarily on domestic violence and sexual exploitation cases, as well as computer crimes and drug offenses.

    Ms. Kardon received her Juris Doctor from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1991, and both The State Bar of California and the Colorado Bar Association have admitted her to practice. Additionally, she practices before all four California U.S. District Courts and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, and she defends federal criminal cases throughout the country.

    Along with remaining involved with several professional legal organizations, Ms. Kardon is committed to her community. Working with the Los Angeles County Bar Association's Juvenile Courts Task Force Committee, she created a program to assist and mentor emancipated foster youth.
