The Law Office of Blackie Burak

Criminal Defense Overview


Northern California Criminal Defense Lawyer

If you have been charged with any criminal offense, whether a misdemeanor or felony, it is important to consider the long-term consequences. Seek legal advice to determine your best course of action and how to minimize the effects of a criminal charge on your family, your career and your future.
At my northern California law office, I defend individuals against any type of criminal charge. I was certified as a Criminal Law Specialist by the State Bar of California in 1983. Only attorneys who have demonstrated knowledge, experience and skill can obtain the certification. I am attorney Blackie Burak, and I have been practicing law for nearly 40 years. I am known as a lawyer who gets results for clients. Whether I am able to have your charges dismissed or obtain a reduced penalty depends on the case, but clients should know that I will fight for their rights at every stage of a criminal proceeding.

Whatever the Criminal Charge, I Can Help
I have successfully helped people fight charges such as these:

  • DUI / DWI and felony DUI
  • Juvenile crimes
  • Sex crimes such as rape, sexual assault, lewd and lascivious behavior, and possession of child pornography
  • Violent crimes such as assault, armed robbery, murder and manslaughter
  • Property crimes such as burglary, vandalism and arson
  • White collar crimes such as fraud, bribery and theft
  • Traffic offenses such as speeding, reckless driving, hit and run, stop sign violations or driving while license suspended

Fighting for You, Your Rights and Your Future
I negotiate with prosecutors for reduced or dismissed charges and help ensure that the police used correct procedures when assembling the evidence against you. When we agree that I will serve as your defense lawyer, you can be sure that I will force the prosecution to prove its case. Additionally, I will find and use any mitigating circumstances that can help the prosecutor understand the need for reduced penalties. While I can make no guarantees, you can be confident that your case will be handled with professionalism and dedication.
