A California Criminal Defense Lawyer With Over 17 Years of Experience
In an effort to crack down on gang activity, the state of California has decided
that individuals convicted of a crime that is deemed to benefit a gang will be punished

At the Law Office of Kristi Peariso, P.C., I aggressively defend clients in crimes
deemed to be for the benefit of a street gang. This includes charges of robbery,
assault and battery, vandalism, drug offenses or any other crimes the district attorney
believes to be in furtherance of a gang. I have extensive experience handling high-stakes

As a court appointed attorney, I understand the intricacies of this type of case.
I will challenge their findings if you have been wrongly accused of being involved
in a gang and will put my experience effectively cross-examining gang experts to
work for you.
