Welcome to The Law Office of Scott Newbould

Since its inception in 2004, The Law Office of Scott Newbould has never lost focus on the passion and purpose of a dedicated criminal defense practice: you, the client. We realize bad things happen to good people; we are here to help you, not judge you.

Facing criminal charges is an incredibly stressful and unpleasant experience. Criminal Defense Attorney Scott Newbould will be there with you, every step of the way. Many law firms send an unknown lawyer to represent you in court, without knowing you or the case. We believe this is highly unprofessional and not in the best interest of you, the client. From your first court appearance to the last, Mr. Newbould will be personally present, well prepared, and keep you informed of all important case developments.

The Criminal Justice system is complex, impersonal, and unforgiving. You need a smart, aggressive lawyer on your side to fight your case. The police and prosecutor may not care if you are falsely accused. Worse yet, they may be too uninterested or busy to fully investigate your case to realize your innocence. Whether you are falsely accused of a crime or are in fact guilty does not matter. If the government cannot prove your guilt, you are presumed to be innocent. Mr. Newbould is not afraid to take your case to Jury Trial. If the evidence suggests you?re guilty, there are ways to mitigate any possible consequences. No matter your situation, we can help.

We provide exceptional legal representation in San Mateo County. Our localized knowledge of San Mateo County is a huge advantage in the courtroom. Relationships with Judges, Prosecutors and other Court Staff create a favorable environment in which to advocate on behalf of our clients. Whether taking a case to trial, or negotiating a plea bargain, local knowledge puts YOU in the best position possible.
