John W. StankoOwner
My name is John Stanko and I have been devoted to the defense of clients who have been charged with traffic ticket violations and Drunk Driving, offenses in the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California since 1996.
When you get arrested it is important to remember that you have the right to remain silent and to consult a criminal defense lawyer. I recommend that you exercise your right to remain silent and not make any statement to the police and call me. The sooner you call an experienced attorney, the better. The Law Office of John Stanko, Inc. offers a free initial consultation to discuss your case with you personally and confidentially.
My law practice includes the defense of those charged with drunk driving, driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, and driving with a prohibited blood alcohol concentration (.08 or greater bac), traffic ticket offense (moving violations), and other criminal charges. I also assist clients with post-conviction matters including the expungement (dismissal) of their cases and the sealing of records.
At the Law Office of John Stanko, Inc. we believe you owe it to yourself to talk to a criminal defense attorney who knows the law. Remember, just because you got arrested does not mean that you are guilty. You are innocent! The government bears the burden of trying to prove you guilty. Do not be a victim of an illegal arrest, illegal or exaggerated charges and false evidence brought against you by the prosecution. I have established an impressive track record of helping clients avoid jail and getting on with their lives.
My office is located in Central Marin County in San Rafael with easy access to the North and East Bay Area Counties and San Francisco. I handle cases in the Superior and Traffic Courts in Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Solano, Alameda, Contra Costa, San Mateo and San Francisco Counties.
