Certified Criminal Law Specialist, State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.


Only those lawyers that demonstrate the highest levels of proficiency, knowledge, skill, experience, and ethics in their practice area can call themselves Certified Specialists. Mr. Speredelozzi practices only criminal law and has personally handled hundreds of criminal cases. His experience ranges from simple misdemeanors to first degree murder. Our clients have the benefit of knowing their courtroom advocate is an authoritative voice on criminal law.

A network of skilled forensic experts and private investigators


We utilize a network of skilled forensic experts and private investigators. These professionals work to build a defense by investigating the facts and refuting the evidence put forth by the prosecution. Our criminal defense law firm is known by judges and prosecutors as professional and thorough defenders of the accused.



Prosecution of white collar crimes, especially cyber crimes and identity theft, has increased in recent years. These specialized crimes present an array of unique legal and factual issues. Our clients have an advantage in these cases by employing a legal team experienced in defending these complicated matters.


Mr. Speredelozzi has been working with accused children since 2007 when he completed a clerkship at the Juvenile Division of the San Diego Public Defender’s Office.  Juvenile court is vastly different from adult court and its procedures are based on a different set of laws.  Therefore it is very important to hire not just any criminal defense law firm, but an attorney who is skilled in navigating the juvenile system.


 Gang related crime is a serious issue in San Diego. In California, the law imposes substantial increases in punishment when a crime is committed at the direction of, for the benefit of, or in association with, a criminal street gang. Cases involving gang allegations present difficult obstacles for our client’s defense. Our criminal defense law firm has successfully litigated many gang cases throughout the years, and our clients have an advantage by working with attorneys knowledgeable in defending gang allegations. We work with gang experts and investigators that are familiar with issues specific to gang cases.


Federal offenses carry significantly harsher sentences than their state counterparts.  Additionally, the law that governs these cases is substantially different from state law.  The cases are heard by different judges and handled by different prosecutors.  Our clients charged with federal crimes have the advantage of a criminal defense law firm that has experience handling federal cases and conducting federal jury trials.


  • I don’t believe anyone wants to meet an attorney after a series of poor decisions.  However, I could not have been more confident about my choice of Mr. Speredelozzi as my counsel in this matter.
         From the initial consultation until the situation was resolved, he was very much engaged and an advocate for me to get the best possible outcome. Throughout the process, no matter how bleak or drawn-out it was, Mr. Speredelozzi was very professional and communicated all the particulars of the case to me. He seemed very flexible and always returned phone calls and emails quickly. There is no doubt in my mind I wouldn't have gotten the settlement I did if not for Mr. Speredelozzi's dedication, resourcefulness, and knowledge of the courts.
  • Thank you so much Matthew! You really saved me.
         I will definitely be recommending you to everyone! Thanks again. I hope I don't need a lawyer in the future, but I'm keeping your number on speed dial just in case.
  • If you need any kind of legal advice, I highly recommend contacting Matt Speredelozzi.
         Matt represented me in my second DUI. I was really worried since it was my second offense and I was a college student at the time. Matt made me feel very secure in my decision to hire him. He put a lot of time and care into my case, and it was easy to see how hard he works. He was very honest with me about my options. I decided to take my case to trial. Five days before the trial was scheduled to start, he called me to tell me the DA had dropped my case! I have never been so happy.
  • Matt gave me my life back.
    Not a day goes by that I am not grateful for everything you did for me. Thank you for your time, commitment, advice, and friendship during a very challenging time. I would not be where I am today without your help.

  • As someone who was never in trouble with the law before this incident, Matt was dedicated to helping me get a fair settlement.
    He saw the good in me when I was at my worst.  I appreciated Mr. Speredelozzi's honesty and frankness.  I never had any misconceptions about what was going to happen nor was I promised an unrealistic conclusion, but I could not have been more satisfied with the outcome of my case.  Thank you again for getting me the best possible result.

  • Matt Speredelozzi displayed confidence and made me feel like he was on my side.
    He never made me feel "grouped" in with others who have made poor decisions like I did. He won my case and made a very upsetting and possibly life shattering experience tolerable and much easier than it could have been. I feel because of Matt, I am getting a second chance.

  • I would highly recommend you to others who need help
    Thank you for working on my case. I am beyond relieved to have the expungement granted. I appreciated how you got back to me super fast every time I called or emailed. I've hired lawyers in the past that took a day or two to respond and so this was very nice to have. You have been open and honest about the case and answered any questions I had with patience and honesty. I appreciated that and knew what to prepare for. The day of court you were so eloquent and professional... I was definitely impressed and it was funny to see the prosecution stumble a bit. Thanks again for all your work and effort. I have already talked to some friends about your service and would highly recommend you to others who need help.

  • I would not hesitate to use Matt in the future if the need should arise. I highly recommend his services.
    I hired Matt to defend my 17 year old son who was cited on 2 juvenile misdemeanor charges. Matt responded promptly to my initial phone call. He explained the significance of the charges and also described in detail what my son's options were, and the possible outcomes. Matt guided my son through each step of the process leading up to his court date. We were pleased with the outcome of the court's decision. I would not hesitate to use Matt in the future if the need should arise. I highly recommend his services.

  • I was totally amazed with the final results!!!
    When I contacted Matt for professional services I wasn't sure what to expect because I lived out of town and questioned how we would communicate, but that ended up not being a problem because Matt was always up on my case and continuously kept me informed by phone and e-mail. I was totally amazed with the final results!!! He saved me lots of time, money, and frustration with my case.
