Coastal Legal Center Represents People In Three Areas Of The Law:

  1. Criminal Defense Each person’s case is unique and every single person deserves an effective defense. For 35 years, our attorneys have provided aggressive, relentless and experienced criminal defense to San Diego County.

    We work in the state, federal, as well as all military courts and the DMV. We are experienced in successfully defending a wide range of criminal charges, from Minor In Possession to Homicide and nearly every chargeable offense in between (see our detailed Practice List). Lead attorney Jerrold Bodow is a former prosecutor providing crucial insight into how to relentlessly defend and WIN cases for clients. This is a tremendous strength for countering a prosecutor’s strategies in your case. More About our Criminal Defense Work

  2. Military Criminal and Administrative Defense, such as court-martial and administrative discharge boards Coastal Legal Center has represented military personnel serving throughout Southern California, including Camp Pendleton, 32nd Street Naval Base, Coronado, Miramar, Navy Region Southwest, North Island, and Spawar, as well as across the country and around the world.

    Service men and women facing court martial or other disciplinary actions need an attorney who understands the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Moreover, they need an attorney who can act on their behalf without regard for their own military career. At Coastal Legal Center in San Diego, California, we have the skill and the experience to handle military law issues for clients in the Navy, Marines, Air Force, Army, and Coast Guard.

  3. People injured due to the negligence of others, such as auto accident victims. Representing People Injured in Accidents

    Effective Representation. We will give you an honest assessment of your situation and straightforward answers to your questions.

    We employ investigators licensed by the State of California, as well as forensic experts who have proven investigative skills in criminal defense, military defense and personal injury cases.

    Cases We Handle

By limiting his area of practice, Mr. Bodow stays on the cutting edge of the law. We bring in other attorneys to work with us for you when their expertise in an area would be useful to you. Unlike many other law firms, the additional attorneys will cost you no more than if I handled the case alone. The client’s best interests come first. We also bring in non-attorney experts when their analysis and assistance will help. We at Coastal Legal Center are devoted to getting our clients the very best possible outcome in their case. Your goals become our goals.  We tailor our representation to fit your needs.

We know the nuances, local rules and technicalities of practice in the San Diego courts. We use SKYPE, Facetime and state of the art computer and case management systems. Call now for a free consultation.

We accept all major credit cards, Pay Pal, checks or cash payment.
