Bonilla & Cintean, Sacramento Criminal Defense

The Right Attorneys Make a Difference

In criminal defense, having the right attorney makes a vast difference. You need an attorney who knows both the law and the prosecutor mindset, who can negotiate effectively yet is ready and well prepared to fight to protect your rights in court.

The Law Firm of Bonilla & Cintean LLP is dedicated to helping you in your time of need. As two former prosecutors with more than a decade of cumulative experience, who have conducted dozens of jury trials, attorneys David Bonilla and Alin Cintean know what you are going through and what you can expect at every phase of the legal process.

We will work hard to obtain the best result possible in your particular circumstances. We will make your freedom our priority, and vigorously advocate for you and your family.

Our initial consultation is free, and we will meet with you to determine the best path to reaching a successful resolution of your case. We practice in the counties of Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado, San Juaquin, Yolo, Solano, Napa, Contra Costa, Alameda, and Marin, as well as other nearby counties.

Having handled hundreds of DUI cases, our attorneys bring outstanding credentials and practical experience to every case that involves DUI charges––whether first, second, or third misdemeanor DUI; felony DUI; DUI with injury; or vehicular manslaughter or vehicular murder.

We also handle cases ranging from simple assault to firearm charges to murder, drug–related charges, cases that involve gang allegations, and cases that trigger California's three strikes law. When it comes to domestic violence cases, we understand the complexity of the issues and laws involved. The attorneys at Bonilla & Cintean, LLP, work together with a team of licensed and experienced private investigators (many of whom have prior law enforcement experience) to prepare each case and present it effectively to the court and the district attorney.

We are also up to date with the latest medical marijuana laws and defenses, and understand the particular needs of people accused of white–collar crimes such as embezzlement, Medi–Cal and MediCare fraud, and other financial fraud charges.

We are here to help, efficiently and effectively, when you most need a strong defense. We are also glad to help people pursue a fresh start through petitions for expungement of prior convictions.

If your child is the one who has been arrested, cited, or questioned by law enforcement, it is imperative that you contact us as promptly as possible so that we can begin talking with the authorities involved (whether the juvenile probation department, the court, or even the district attorney), to bring a favorable resolution to your child's case.
