Alameda County has undergone quite a few changes in its history. First a part of Contra Costa County, Alameda County’s original county seat was San Leandro. The courthouse there was destroyed by an earthquake, and the county seat was moved to Brooklyn, a town eventually consumed by much larger Oakland. Over the years Alameda County has evolved from orchard groves, to suburbs of San Francisco, to the bustling urban metropolis that it is today.
Alameda County lawyers can assist you in criminal defense, personal injury litigation, bankruptcy, family law, or any other legal issue you may be facing.
Alameda County lawyers are in the national spotlight this year. Attorneys from Alameda County are on both sides of a murder trial against a Bay Area police officer. The officer is accused of murdering an unarmed, handcuffed suspect on New Years Eve. The officer claims that in attempting to restrain the suspect with his taser, he accidentally shot his gun at the suspect, killing him.
Attorneys in Alameda County should be familiar with the Alameda County Superior Court. The vast majority of cases in Alameda County begin here. California Courts are consolidated into one Superior Court for every county, which hears both criminal and civil cases. If you have a case in Alameda County, you should hire an attorney experienced with your local court system.
