Professional Assistance in a Time of Need

Attorney Richard Wingerden’s interest in the legal profession was sparked while he was an undergraduate in Political Science at San Jose State University. His legal experience began in 1991 at the Santa Clara County Public Defender’s Office. The one-and-a-half-year long internship provided him with firsthand experience in the criminal justice system. This exposure to criminal defense solidified his commitment to the legal profession.

Our Santa Clara criminal defense law firm represents clients facing criminal charges throughout California. Attorney Richard Wingerden uses his experience as a public defender to develop creative, customized defense strategies for clients. Whether you or a loved one was charged with a misdemeanor or felony crime, our defense lawyer can help.

Additionally, Richard Wingerden also offers estate planning and business law services throughout California. He can assist you in drawing up a will or establishing a trust whether your estate is extensive or not. He can also represent your business interest in disputes, contract negotiations and more.
