Why Skelton & Wong, P.C.?

Attorneys with more than 50 years of litigation and trial experience

We pursue victory with logic. As criminal defense attorneys, it is our job to point out to opposing counsel why they cannot win a particular argument. Weaknesses in the opposition’s case strengthen your ability to negotiate for a better outcome both in and out of court. Pretrial negotiations and plea bargains hinge on the discovery process, which equips you with the facts and the insight you need to negotiate for a better result without embarking onto the uncertainty of trial. Our attorneys are nothing if not thorough in the pretrial discovery phase.

We're fighters – but we fight fair. Integrity is at the core of our legal practice. We have a reputation for our comprehensive knowledge of the law and fearlessness in broaching new issues in criminal defense court. Our clients know that we will do everything we can within ethical and legal bounds to challenge the opposition’s case and to win at trial.

Trial is a scary prospect but we make it worth your while. At trial, a judge or jury gets to decide the course of your future, based on a subjective evaluation of the evidence presented. Presenting compelling arguments requires substantive legal knowledge and exceptional trial presentation skill. At Skelton & Wong, P.C., our attorneys stake their reputations on trial ability and welcome the opportunity to put our litigation skill to use in your defense.

We understand the science behind the justice. DNA tests, field sobriety tests, breathalyzers, blood alcohol analysis and other examinations are some of the most common types of scientific proof brought into court to validate the prosecution’s case against a criminal defendant. In some cases, lawyers must fight expert with expert — hiring independent technicians to verify or disprove the prosecution’s findings. Skelton & Wong can help you decide whether and how to challenge the opposition's scientific evidence.

Personal attention is the touchstone of our practice. Your legal issue is as important to us as it is to you. Our attorneys work nights and weekends to ensure that each client gets the benefit of thought and preparation in the days and weeks preceding trial. Beyond drafting motions and memoranda, we meet with clients to go over evidence and to contemplate strategy. Our goal is to get you the best possible result in the upcoming trial.

We are accessible via email, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our attorneys know that you can get arrested at inconvenient times — early in the morning, or in in the middle of the night.  We are committed to being available to you whenever you need us, whether that's late at night or in the middle of a weekend, and remain accessible via email.
