Sommer Salam is a former criminal prosecutor who served as a District Attorney for over eight years before becoming a criminal defense attorney.
As a result of her substantial time at the D.A.’s office, she handled virtually every type of criminal case, from filing and investigation stages, to negotiating plea bargains, to preliminary hearings, all the way through trial.
Sommer Salam’s level of experience handling this vast array of both felony and misdemeanor cases for so many years gives her a unique perspective on what the D.A. needs in order to successfully prosecute a case…and what it will take to weaken and eventually break the D.A.’s case.
In her final years at the District Attorney’s office, Sommer Salam specialized primarily in Domestic Violence cases at both the felony and misdemeanor levels, giving her a deep and specific understanding of cases involving Domestic Violence and how to beat them.
Even after taking numerous cases to trial, Sommer Salam’s record of trial wins is unmarred: she has never lost a trial. She is a zealous and caring advocate for her clients, and will fight to the end to protect and defend their records, reputations and freedom.
