After working for over a decade in representing clients facing criminal prosecution, Attorney Jared Olen decided he wanted to open a law firm focused on his passion for representing clients. Jared gained invaluable experience working in both government and private practice, being mentored by some of the most well-respected criminal defense lawyers in the country. As a deputy public defender, Jared was exposed to the entire gambit of criminal offenses and thousands up on thousands of clients from all walks of life.
Jared’s philosophy in representing criminal defense clients has always been to provide each and every person with the highest-quality representation no matter how serious or difficult the case. Here at the Olen Firm, we strongly believe that every client deserves the strongest, most effective defense to their criminal case. While the United States Constitution says that all defendants are presumed innocent, sadly, the system does not always work that way. Therefore, it is our goal at the Olen Firm to hold the government to its burden of proof and to ensure that each and every client receives a fair and just resolution to their case.
At the Olen Firm, we believe that three main values set us apart from other criminal defense lawyers.
Experience. With over a decade of criminal-defense experience, Jared has seen it all. No two cases are ever the same, and there is never a “right” answer to how a case should be handled. That’s why you need a criminal defense lawyer who was the experience and proficiency to quickly assess the strengths and weaknesses of a case, form a game plan, and then fight for the best result for your case. A criminal case will likely be one of the scariest times in your life. You deserve a knowledgeable advocate who understands how to secure the best outcome for your situation.
Passion. While some lawyers get into criminal defense as simply a job, here at the Olen Firm, we believe that representing criminal defendants is a calling. Jared has dedicated his entire life to advocating for others from all walks of life. If you allow us the privilege of representing you, we will treat your case as if it were our own. You deserve the absolute best defense, and we will work tirelessly to ensure you get it.
Results. Your criminal case is only as good as the result you get. Criminal law in California is extremely complex. There are so many potential consequences to a criminal conviction, such as immigration issues, license suspensions, loss of public benefits, fines, jail time, and probation. You deserve a criminal defense lawyer who understands not only how to get the best sentencing outcome for your case but also a lawyer who will minimize other risks to your life and liberty. There are many programs and diversions available to people charged with crimes in California. Here at the Olen Firm, we will fight to get you the best outcome possible for your criminal case.
