Why Choose Us

It’s important to choose a lawyer who has the experience to defend your case aggressively and intelligently.  With a wide variety of criminal case experience, and dozens of trials Kian Magana of The Magana Firm is the right lawyer to defend your criminal case.

Each case under the law is fact-specific.  There is no”one-size fits all” solution to any criminal or civil case.  That being said, an aggressive and intelligent defense takes a holistic view of the facts, and applies the law to those facts, specifically.


Based on the unique facts, your case may be right for a trial — in other cases, a negotiated settlement might be right.

Occasionally law enforcement overstep the bounds of their authority.  They might conduct an illegal stop or an illegal search.  They may fail to disclose exculpatory information.  In some cases, they may even use unreasonable force against a suspect.

If the police have violated your rights, Kian Magana will work with you to explore your options — The Magana Firm may be able to have the Court throw out improper evidence (sometimes called “the fruit of the poisonous tree”).  In some cases, a lawsuit against the offending agency may be appropriate.  Either way, The Magana Firm is here to help.

If the police want to talk to you about a potential crime, remember — you are NOT required to speak with them!  Instead, consider telling them you will have your lawyer contact them. Then call The Magana Firm to discuss your case!
