I became a lawyer because I wanted to help people. I work in the Vista, California, area because I believe people here deserve to have a professional, tough attorney on their side. I know sometimes good people make bad mistakes. I am also aware innocent people can be convicted because of embarrassment, fear, or lack of representation.
If you are being investigated, or charged with any criminal offense, anywhere in California, contact me, attorney Joel Bailey, at Bailey Criminal Defense, Inc. For over 23 years I’ve had the privilege of helping people stay out of jail and protect their livelihoods and families. Put my experience to work for you.
