I am Attorney Richard A. Hutton. I have dedicated most of my legal career to representing accused individuals. As a Certified Criminal Law Specialist by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization, I possess the expert knowledge to tackle even the most challenging kinds of cases. In fact, I have tried more than 500 jury trials! My legal insight has allowed me to lecture at the U.S.C. Advanced Professionalism Program and bar association groups such as Orange County Trial Lawyers, Criminal Courts Bar Association, San Diego Trial Lawyers Association, and the California Attorneys for Criminal Justice. I served as past President for the Board of Governors of the California Attorneys for Criminal Justice (CACJ), the largest statewide organization of criminal lawyers in the country.
"He's a lawyer's lawyer."
"I say the following without any reservation - Rich Hutton is the best criminal defense attorney I've ever met. If I got in trouble with the law I would hire him. He's a lawyer's lawyer." - Mark Khalaf (DUI & DWI Attorney)
A highly rated lawyer on Avvo, I have also written numerous DUI-related articles, which have been published in periodicals such as Scientific and Expert Evidence, Second Edition. For my exceptional courtroom ability and results, I have received the Jerry Giesler Memorial Award twice from the Criminal Courts Bar Association, something that very few lawyers have accomplished. I am a former president of the Los Angeles County Criminal Courts Bar Association, and California DUI Lawyers Association. I have also testified regarding proposed legislation before the California Assembly Legislative Committee. I also received the Criminal Justice Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Associations Award for Criminal Defense Attorney of the Year.
Needless to say, I have the legal prowess and resources to protect your rights under a criminal accusation. I would be happy to review the details of your case during a complimentary evaluation. I can guide you through every step of the judicial system so that you are always aware of your rights and options. I will remain at your side until your case is settled in a timely manner.
