"For 30 years our clients have placed their futures in our hands. We take our responsibilities very seriously. Please call us for a free consultation so that we can assist you in resolving your legal problems."

The Eckdish Law Office
is located in the Marina District of San Francisco, California. Our successes in obtaining winning results for our clients over the years have been achieved through aggressive representation, thorough investigation and early preparation of our clients' cases. We utilize creative legal strategies and resourceful defenses


We emphasize defending clients in both the criminal and immigration courts. If you are charged with crime(s) in U.S. federal or California state courts or are facing removal (deportation) in U.S. Immigration Court, then you will want to consult with us.

In representing you in the criminal courts, we utilize our 30 years of courtroom experience and resources in order to avoid convictions for aggravated felonies, crimes of moral turpitude, and crimes of violence which could result in exclusion, deportation, denial of adjustment of status or denial of naturalization.

In representing you before the U.S.C.I.S. (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services formerly the B.C.I.S. and I.N.S.) or in immigration court removal proceedings, we aggressively seek out relief in the criminal courts where your conviction(s) occurred. We file motions to reduce, modify, expunge and/or dismiss those convictions so they can not be used against you by the U.S.C.I.S or by the immigration judges to deport you or deny your adjustment of status. We aggressively defend those in removal and deportation proceedings with all available forms of relief. For more information on this click here.

  • Our immigration practice emphasizes representing clients who are seeking to adjust their status, are in removal/deportation proceedings, who are petitioning for naturalizations, or those seeking to obtain H-1B Specialty Occupation visas.

  • In our criminal defense practice over the years, we have aggressively and successfully defended thousands of clients, citizens and non-citizens alike, who charged with drug, violent felonies, domestic violence offenses, DUI's and misdemeanor crimes. We also represent an ever increasing number of juveniles charged in delinquency, fitness proceedings, and adult court direct file prosecutions.
  • We offer comprehensive legal services for each of our clients. These services include the use of skilled but affordable licensed investigators and other experts when necessary to prepare and win our clients' cases.

Please contact us for a personal, confidential and free telephone consultation.
