Munoz & Associates. Experienced Drug Defense Attorneys and Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Edward R. Muñoz has over 40 years of litigation experience. He is a dedicated and passionate defense attorney with a strong background in criminal law. He has successfully defended hundreds of clients charged with misdemeanor and felony crimes. His negotiating ability, trial skills, and integrity are the keys to his success. If you have been charged with a State or Federal Drug Crime, you need to move quickly to protect yourself. A District Attorney or United States Prosecutor is not going to file charges or indict you unless they are confident that they will obtain a guilty verdict. No one likes to lose. Especially not the United States Government. If you have been accused of a crime or have already been charged, the prosecution firmly believes that they have enough evidence to win. An experienced Criminal Defense Attorney like Edward Muñoz can help. He has handled Criminal Defense Cases for over 40 years. Mr. Muñoz also spent 10 years on the other side of the fence as a Prosecutor for the Orange County District Attorney's Office. He understands how to litigate your case and how to keep you free. Fighting for your freedom is his passion. Protecting your rights is his job. “The keys to a good working relationship between a defense lawyer and their client are trust and communication. I am committed to assuring that my client understands their case. I take the time to meet with each of my clients, listen to the circumstance of their case, and provide them with an honest assessment of their legal situation. I believe that it is as important for my client to feel as comfortable with me as a defense and trial lawyer, as I am with their case.” Edward R. Muñoz
