Criminal Defense Attorney Serving Imperial and San Diego Counties

If you have been charged with a crime, you need experienced legal counsel on your side. I am Attorney Chris Yturralde, and I am proud to serve the entire Imperial County and all of San Diego with dedicated and knowledgeable legal representation in criminal law. From misdemeanor charges to felonies, I strive to protect my clients' freedoms and reputations.

Experienced Legal Representation

I have substantial experience in criminal law and specifically, experience in criminal law in the Imperial Valley. For more than 20 years, I have worked as a Deputy District Attorney, Special Assistant U.S. Attorney and as a private criminal and civil attorney in both San Diego and Imperial Counties. Not only do I have knowledge of the law and extensive experience trying and negotiating cases, I also understand court procedures; I am attuned to the judicial officers and other prosecutors' proclivities on certain matters.


Speaks Spanish

I speak Spanish fluently and am able to communicate with you in your native tongue, without the help of a translator. You can tell me what is going on in a way that is most comfortable to you.

Providing Personal Service

I provide my clients with personal and cost-effective legal services. My rates are competitive and my billing is fair. You have a direct line of communication with me — not a paralegal or a secretary. I promptly return all calls and emails, and I always keep you informed about what is happening in your case.

Ties To The Community

I grew up in Imperial County, near El Centro. I understand the culture and have direct ties to the community. If you have been charged with a crime, you will need an attorney who understands you and your neighborhood. Contact me today.
