Proudly Serving Clients In State and Federal Courts Across California

Criminal Defense

As a former Deputy District Attorney and Deputy Public Defender, I have handled thousands of criminal cases ranging from infractions and misdemeanors to three-strikes cases and other serious/violent felonies. I am also an experienced DUI and domestic violence defense attorney. I have assisted clients in drug court, domestic violence court, and veterans court. I also help clients address post-conviction issues, including violations of probation, appeals, and expungements. In the spirit of my prior public service, I also consider taking on "low-bono" cases already headed for trial.

Civil Litigation

As a former corporate litigator at a prestigious "big law" firm, I helped large corporations battle other corporations. I now apply these same skills to help small- and medium-size businesses to resolve disputes with other businesses prior to a lawsuit or to litigate all the way through trial, if necessary. I also use these same skills to help individuals resolve disputes with and fight injustices against businesses that have taken advantage of them.

Personal Injury

I am an experienced personal injury attorney who has helped others obtain full value for injuries caused by the negligence or wrongful conduct of others, including from serious collisions (car, truck, train, and bus), medical malpractice, excessive force by law enforcement and other misconduct, elder abuse, wrongful death, and other cases in which a person has been injured or has died due to the fault or negligence of others.

ABOUT CLAYTON T. ROBERTSON

As a former Deputy District Attorney and Deputy Public Defender who has litigated thousands of cases, including misdemeanors and felonies, I know how to fight for you. My background includes adult and juvenile cases, as well as serious and violent felonies and three-strikes cases. I am also an experienced civil litigator with a corporate litigation background at a prestigious "big law" firm who switched sides to sue corporations and other entities (including insurance companies, police departments, governments, and others) on behalf of individuals to obtain justice for my clients. I have seen firsthand how corporations and the government, including prosecutors, fight to protect their interests, and I use those same skills to protect individuals against the injustices inflicted upon them. 

I am a member of several of the most prestigious trial organizations in the country. I am admitted in all state and federal courts in California. I graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa with top honors from college. I later earned my MBA/JD from UCLA. I also have graduate degrees in Communications from USC and Anthropology from UCLA.

Client Testimonials

"Clayton is one phenomenal attorney! He is ABSOLUTELY THE BEST! . . . He was VERY EXPERIENCED. He asked all the right questions to get to know me as an individual in efforts to allow him to defend me properly. . . . Any time of the day as long as he was available, he responded back when I had a question of concern or needed advice. . . . He looked for avenues seeking the best deal possible for me . . . I was able to walk away from what should’ve been a FELONY-hands down. . . but was plead out as a MISDEMEANOR. I am truly thankful that I followed my first mind and chose Clayton to be my attorney with this case!"
