From DUI to capital murder, Mr. Torres has proven that he can provide you with a skilled and compelling defense. He has represented numerous clients accused of murder and later acquitted after a jury trial. In 2005, he defended Marcus Wesson in the biggest mass murder trial in Fresno County’s history.

In 2009, Mr. Torres represented Phillip Landry, a young man accused of the home invasion robbery and assault of a retired judge and his wife. The jury found Mr. Landry not guilty.

In 2011, Attorney Torres represented Donald Hamilton, who was accused of the unlawful taking of a vehicle and receiving stolen property and was facing a three-strikes allegation, which exposed him to a minimum of 25 years to life in prison. The jury found Mr. Hamilton not guilty.

In 2012, Mr. Torres represented Rafael Vega against charges of attempted murder and robbery, exposing him to life in prison. The vote was 10-2 for not guilty, but the jury was not unanimous and a mistrial was declared. Mr. Vega later accepted a hard-fought plea agreement guaranteeing that he will be released soon. An absolute victory.

Most recently in 2012, Mr. Torres represented Alejandro Barra against charges of capital murder, which exposed him to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Despite a vote of 10-2 for not guilty, the jury could not come to a unanimous verdict, and the court declared a mistrial. The case was later settled for a plea to voluntary manslaughter, and he too will be released soon. Another impressive victory.
