Robert D. Byers is a criminal Defense attorney
For 25 years, I have dedicated myself to criminal defense in the State and Federal courts of the Oakland, Hayward, and San Francisco Bay Area. I have never been a prosecutor or any other type of lawyer. I worked in criminal defense before I graduated from college. Criminal defense is what I have always wanted to do.
