Thousands of traffic and criminal cases (felony & misdemeanor) are handled at the Vista courthouse each year. These crimes include everything from minor offenses to drunk driving (DUI), assault and battery, robbery, child molest, firearms, gang crimes and even capital murder cases including many high profile cases in the media.

The law firm of Sean F. Leslie, Attorney at Law, competently defends people charged with all types of crimes in the Vista courthouse, and all other courthouses in San Diego County. My firm operates exclusively as a criminal defense and DUI law firm handling only criminal, dui and restraining order cases. Criminal law in California, especially San Diego County, has become such a specialized practice and we feel to best serve our clients was and is to limit my firm's practice to these fields of law.

My firm location is centrally located in Carlsbad and is easily accessible to all persons living in Vista and North San Diego County.
