Meet Elia A. Naqvi
Skilled Santa Ana Criminal Defense Attorney
Being a criminal defense attorney is frequently not the most popular, respected,
or lucrative career choice for lawyers. However, there is nothing Elia
A. Naqvi would rather be doing. She believes that being a
Santa Ana criminal defense lawyer is the most important job that she can do.
A genuine, sincere, and compassionate attorney, she truly believes in the
fundamental concept of “innocent until proven guilty”. She
makes a point of listening to their stories and giving them honest, straightforward
advice on their options.
“I am entrusted with the life and liberty of my clients and the future
of their families. I am the only voice that they have in the criminal
justice system that has to be heard over the governmental system that
is built against them. The prosecutions office, the police departments
and, in fact, the entire justice system has to be fought against by the
criminal defense attorney. I am proud to stand up with my client in the
courtroom and be his/her voice and fight the system for my client.”
–Elia A. Naqvi
Experienced & Knowledgeable Legal Guidance
Ms. Naqvi has more than 20 years of experience as a criminal defense attorney.
She worked for almost 7 years as a Public Defender with the County of
Orange, then as a private attorney in Orange County and the surrounding
counties. She has conducted about 50 trials and over 80 preliminary hearings.
This experience is extremely beneficial to her clients. She knows how to
conduct herself in a courtroom; when it is advantageous for her client
to negotiate and when it is beneficial to play hardball. Ms. Naqvi has
the ability to see the risks or rewards in a case that the prosecutor
or novice attorney might not have picked up on. Due to her experience,
she knows when a case is best served by taking it to trial, and she is
willing and able to do so. Her comfort and experience in the courtroom
gives her an edge on more timid defense attorneys and makes her someone
you want representing you.
