Hi, i'm jennifer

San diego criminal defense lawyer

Welcome to Gerstenzang Law. My name is Jennifer and I am a San Diego criminal defense attorney. My job is not only to zealously defend you and your rights but also to explain the process to you and be your first resource for information, updates, and advice. To do that effectively, I want to get to know you personally.

I understand that every client’s case is unique. Each person who seeks my counsel has individual concerns and goals regarding his or her case. I am committed to listening to these concerns and answering all of your questions.

Together, we will create an individualized defense designed to achieve the best possible result in your case.

Preparing for court

Preparing for Court

An important key to feeling prepared is knowing what to expect. Gerstenzang Law can answer many of your questions and explain the court process so you feel more comfortable with the next steps.

undersTanding Your arrest charges

Arrest Charges

It can be difficult to understand what charges the police arrested you for and what they mean. Possessing a greater understanding of the accusations empowers you to take control over your situation.

Handling Active Arrest Warrants

Arrest Warrants

What do you do when there is a warrant out for your arrest? Instead of hiding your head in the sand, there are actually many things you can do to help your chances of staying out of custody.

Legal coaching

Helping you make sense of and preparing for the judicial system

If you or a loved one are in trouble and facing a criminal charge, legal coaching is an affordable opportunity to help you learn about your options and what to expect from the criminal legal process.

Legal Coaching is an excellent opportunity for family members to gain a clearer idea of what is happening in the judicial system and in their loved ones case. People who are waiting to meet their San Diego Public Defender for the first time can also gain valuable insight into their case through a legal coaching session.

While each situation is different, Legal Coaching sessions are designed to give you a lot of information in a short period of time. Instead of spending hours and days trying to do all the research on your own, criminal defense attorney Jennifer Gerstenzang will give you the information you seek in about 30-60 minutes.


The Gerstenzang Law blog is updated regularly with insightful articles designed to answer some of the most frequently asked questions I receive.
