Roseline D. Feral

Roseline D. Feral is a knowledgeable San Diego criminal defense lawyer who has been serving Southern California residents for over 30 years. She also provides representation in the areas of family law and restraining orders. Attorney Feral is known for her ability to handle complex cases and sensitively guide her clients through the legal process. Her goal is to resolve legal issues as efficiently as possible and minimize their impact on the lives of her clients.

People in the San Diego area may be charged with crimes such as DUI, drug possession or trafficking, assault, theft, sex offenses, domestic violence, or fraud, among others. Attorney Feral believes that if the prosecution does not offer any concessions to her client or until such time as an acceptable offer has been extended, the case likely should move forward to a trial at which she will zealously advocate for her client’s rights. Having tried more than 100 jury trials, she understands the nuances of courtroom procedures and can tailor her strategy to a client’s particular situation.

It is important to remember that virtually any criminal charge must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt. The prosecution must meet this high burden with regard to every element of the offense. In many cases, a skilled criminal lawyer can defeat a charge by undermining the credibility of the prosecution’s witnesses, establishing an alibi for their client, challenging the admissibility of evidence, showing that law enforcement violated constitutional protections, or proving that their client lacked the required intent to commit the crime, among other strategies.

Family law relates to matters concerning divorce, custody and visitation, child and spousal support, and property division. While Attorney Feral initially honed her skills as a litigator, she is a strong negotiator as well. As a San Diego divorce attorney, she understands that negotiations may lead to outcomes that better serve a client’s long-term interests and allow them to move on with their lives. However, getting a court involved may be necessary in some circumstances, and she is ready to advocate for her clients tenaciously when that happens.

For example, spouses often dispute the amount or duration of spousal support payments that are made under a separation or divorce order. The idea of spousal support is to permit the less-earning spouse to maintain the level of living to which they were accustomed during the marriage. A number of factors may go into determining whether and how much spousal support will be awarded, including the length of the marriage, the marital standard of living, tax issues, each party’s educational level, and each party’s age and health.

If you have been accused of a crime, you are contemplating or going through a divorce, or you need help concerning a restraining order, Roseline D. Feral has the skills and knowledge to protect your interests. She can represent people in Chula Vista, Coronado, Del Mar, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Escondido, Ramona, Rancho Santa Fe, San Marcos, La Jolla, Oceanside, Valley Center, and Vista, among other Southern California communities.
