The Beginning

I was born and raised in Los Angeles and grew up in a legal environment. My father, Vic Nardoni, is pictured above on the far right. He owned Vic Nardoni Bail Bonds, which I subsequently operated. With six Nardoni family members as bail bondsmen, I had an understanding and passion for the law beginning at an early age.

I have extensive experience defending the rights of people arrested and accused of criminal offenses at every stage of the case, starting with the arrest.

My firm has years of experience dealing with arraignments, discovery, and preliminary hearings. We stay current on legal developments so that we can draft persuasive motions to suppress evidence and other pre-trial motions. All of the time spent before judges and juries has given me a thorough understanding of what is necessary to be successful in jury selection, court procedures, and evidentiary issues.
