Achieving the best possible outcome starts with a high-level investigation into your case and open communication to help you fully understand your options.
Although your case may not require a trial, the intense pre-trial preparation provides the details for a rigorous defense.
A defense attorney who cares.
Law enforcement and prosecutors have important roles and responsibilities, but they can make mistakes. In the worst of cases, innocent people go to prison for crimes they didn’t commit.
Too often, giant law firms leave clients feeling like they are just another file on a big desk.
As your defense attorney, I’m here for you. I will explain the process in detail and answer your questions. I will keep you informed and take your calls. Together, we will get it done.
“I highly recommend Nathan to anybody in need of a criminal defense attorney. He really helped a lot. He’s very professional and kind. I am very happy with the service he provided.”
“Thank you for a job well done. I appreciate that you took my calls and treated me with respect. I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done. I will recommend you to everyone I know.”
“My husband was facing serious jail time because of his prior DUI cases. Mr. Akamine encouraged him to get the help he needed in a treatment program and convinced the Prosecutor and Judge to allow him to do house arrest instead of jail. We can’t thank you enough.”
