Defend Your Rights -- And Your Future

When you have been accused of a crime, your whole future is at stake. There is no time to waste. Speak to a skilled criminal defense lawyer as soon as you can.

At the office of Clay Bedford, Attorney at Law, in Sonora, California, I defend the rights and fight for the futures of people after they have been accused of crimes. I have been practicing criminal defense law for more than 40 years and I have experience with issues such as:

  • Misdemeanors
  • Felonies
  • Appeals
  • Traffic tickets
  • DUI
  • Theft
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Drug charges
  • Violent crimes
  • Sex crimes
  • Elder abuse

With Sonora so close to Yosemite National Park, I often represent visitors accused of speeding within the park, where it is a federal offense.

Get Smart About Your Defense

If everything you know about the criminal justice system comes from movies and television shows, you may be in for some rude surprises when you are charged with a crime. It's important for you to thoroughly explore your legal options and make smart decisions about how to proceed.

When I represent you, I first learn about you and the circumstances of your case. From there, I talk to you at length about your options and the legal strategies that can help. I keep in touch with you throughout your case and keep you up to date on any developments.

In court, I forcefully argue on your behalf, defending your rights and protecting your interests.
