Hayward Criminal Defense Attorney

Not Every Lawyer Delivers Personal, Focused Representation

  • Some attorneys do everything. At J. Francisco Karwash, Attorney at Law, of Hayward, we do only one thing: defend persons who have been charged with crimes. Within criminal defense, however, we do almost everything. We defend against every crime from a juvenile sex crime to serious crimes of violence.
  • Some attorneys pawn you off on paralegals, while they attend to other matters. At J. Francisco Karwash, you are assured of lots of personal attention. Our attorney deals with your case personally from beginning to end. You know we are invested in protecting your rights...because you can see it.
  • Some attorneys never set foot in a courtroom. J. Francisco Karwash is a trial lawyer first and foremost. He wants to go to trial, to fight for your innocence and to believe in your reasoning. Going toe-to-toe against determined prosecutors doesn't scare him. Your rights are what he worries about.
