Our Mission


As a person of color and Asian American, Attorney Johnny Lai became an attorney with the purpose of serving low-income and underserved communities and helping all people assert and defend their Constitutional Rights.

The Role of a Criminal Defense Attorney

As a Criminal Defense attorney, Law Office of Johnny Lai Inc. understands that when the government accuses you of a crime, it often seems the scales of justice are tipped against you. The government prosecutor has the vast resources of the police and prosecutors office to seek to label you a criminal, a label that may seriously affect your future. A criminal conviction, even for misdemeanor crimes, could result in serious criminal punishment including probation, physical labor, community service, fines, license suspension, enhancements to future charges, and jail time. Moreover, even if the case is over, the conviction may affect your ability to obtain a job or promotion, your ability to obtain a state license, or even result in lifelong immigration consequences if you are not a U.S. citizen. Attorney Johnny Lai is a skilled criminal defense attorney who will make sure you will have someone on your side fighting for your Constitutional Rights and looking out for your interests.

When you are Accused of a Crime, You Need a Zealous Advocate on Your Side

We will do everything in our power to obtain the best result possible in your case. In some cases, Attorney Johnny Lai has been able to seek the appointment of investigators or experts at court expense on behalf of clients who could not afford to hire them. We will fight to make sure you have a fair trial and have the best possible result for your case. We will do everything we can to make sure the scales of justice are balanced so as to obtain the best outcome for you as possible.
