“Defending Our Youth Since 2016. Kids Make Mistakes. Hiring Me Is Not One.”
After attending the University of California, Davis (King Hall) School of Law, Anjali A. interned at the SF Public Defender’s Office before joining the Fresno County Public Defender’s Office in August of 2016. She quickly established herself as a strong and fearless advocate for her clients, winning numerous misdemeanor and felony jury trials. She is also one of the few attorneys who specializes in Juvenile Defense. In just over four years as Defense Attorney, she has done adult misdemeanors, felonies, and juvenile cases.
In 2017, she was recognized as the “Juvenile Defense Attorney of the Year”. In 2018, she was recognized as the “Trial Dog” of the Public Defender’s Office for her numerous hangs and acquittals. With over 30 trials and 50 preliminary hearings, she is viewed amongst her peers as a fiery, aggressive negotiator who has resolved Serious/Violent Strikes for non-strike felonies and/or misdemeanors and probation rather than lengthy prison sentences for her many clients.
In December 2019, she left the Public Defender’s Office. A firm believer in helping those who cannot afford a strong defense, she now exclusively does court-appointed indigent work for juveniles in Fresno County. She also opened her own private defense firm and has been retained throughout California.
