Criminal Defense Law

An arrest can place severe strain on not just an individual but their family and friends. Beyond the stress, confusion and turmoil, it’s often a race against time to respond to the legal process. Anyone charged with a crime must have a jury decide that a crime happened beyond a reasonable doubt. The single most important instrument you can deploy is hiring an attorney that’s educated and skilled to represent you. Criminal Defense Lawyer Beatriz “Betty” A. Llorente’s job is to be your zealous advocate.


Betty has both education and experience to prepare for a winning case.
