It may not take a rocket scientist to be a lawyer, but Mark Cantrell has been both. Before he started his career as a Riverside criminal defense trial lawyer in 1994, he was a scientist working on classified military missile programs at the former Norton Air Force Base. He is currently an adjunct professor of mathematics at Riverside City College. He is well known in the Riverside criminal defense community as being one of the best trial attorneys for high profile cases.
Visitors to his office are invited to read copies of newspaper articles about him. He is admitted to practice in all California state and federal courts. Mr. Cantrell handles a wide range of cases but family law, DUI defense and criminal defense are his favorite areas of practice because the client can often be helped by a qualified attorney.
Mark Cantrell is a member of the San Bernardino County Bar Association (SBCBA), Inland Trial Lawyers Association, California Public Defenders Association (CPDA) and the Association of Federal Defense Attorneys (AFDA).
Areas of Practice
Criminal And DUI
Your freedom is at stake. You need the best Riverside criminal defense and Riverside DUI defense lawyer by your side so you know that everything possible is being done to fight your case. If we decide that your case should be resolved by a plea bargain, I will do all I can to obtain the best possible result.
Each case is different, but you can always expect a vigorous defense and trial preparation when you have me by your side. In DUI cases there will be:
(1) a careful analysis of the police reports to uncover weaknesses or mistakes made by the officer in the field sobriety and chemical tests;
(2) a review by scientific experts of the breath or blood test results; and
(3) independent testing of the blood samples.
In all criminal cases, our trial preparation includes an independent investigation by licensed private investigators who will interview your witnesses and develop any possible defenses to challenge the police version of the events.
Do not be fooled by attorneys advertising extremely low fees. Their low fees are telling you that they are not worth much.
