Managing Attorney

Jennifer Mouzis



Hi, I’m Jennifer Mouzis. As your criminal defense attorney, I will vigorously fight to help you win your freedom and clear your name. I have built a reputation in the Sacramento area as a veteran of tough cases with an aggressive style that is proven to get results. At my law firm, I don’t see my clients as criminals, I see them as people who have made mistakes. You deserve a second chance. With me by your side, you’ll have a distinct advantage. As a former prosecutor with the Sacramento District Attorney’s Office, I gained valuable experience learning how criminal law on the other side works, and I’ve put that knowledge to good use by achieving the best possible outcomes for my clients.


I am the Chair of the Criminal Law section at the Sacramento Bar Association. I am also the current Chairwoman of the Board Of Director and volunteer for the Upper Room Dining Hall (Formerly the Secretary from 2018-2019)- a homeless feeding program in Placerville, California. 

Helping those who need it most and giving back to the Sacramento area community are the cornerstones of my law firm.
