Justice done for man previously serving life sentence: Beles & Beles Law Firm convinces court to resentence client who will now be going home. (Aug, 2021)

In a gratifying win for the Law Offices of Beles and Beles, a firm client, I.T., was resentenced in Alameda County Superior Court. I.T. had originally been sentenced as a “third-striker” to a 45-years-to-life state prison term. After I.T. served 19 years of his sentence and made great strides in rehabilitating himself while incarcerated, Beles and Beles worked to convince the District Attorney’s Office to file a motion for resentencing. Firm lawyers Robert Beles, Anne Beles, Manisha Daryani, and Charles Duggan presented written arguments to the District Attorney’s Office that I.T. was deserving of a lesser sentence and a second chance in life. On August 17, 2021, a Superior Court Judge agreed to resentence I.T. The new sentence means I.T. will now be going home to his family.

Major appellate victory — Murder Conviction Overturned! (Aug, 2021)

In a unanimous decision issued on August 6, 2021, the First District Court of Appeal in San Francisco reversed the murder conviction of a Beles & Beles client. In a great team effort by Robert Beles, Manisha Daryani and Joseph Ryan our firm briefed and argued the appeal. The Court of Appeal agreed with our argument that the jury in our client's case should have received a jury instruction about voluntary manslaughter, and that the error required our client's conviction be overturned. We feel vindicated that the Court of Appeal agreed with our argument and we were delighted to share the news with our client and his family.

We Win Cases - Our Winning Strategy:

We Keep Clients Informed - Call Us 24/7

We believe that an informed client can help in the defense of his/her case. We review and share with a client all discovery received from the prosecutor. This means copies of all police reports, audio and video tapes, witness statement, scientific evidence such as DNA, ballistics, blood work, expert opinions.

We Formulate A Defense Plan - All Federal and State Cases

All cases are different but we always have a defense plan based on experience and tactics. Often the defense is simply a failure of the prosecution to prove the case. The burden is on the state to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Good cross examination can create that doubt. Others might require self-defense or accident. A sexual assault might simply never have happened or, in some cases, sex occurred but the act was consensual and, therefore, not a crime.

Legal Motions

Motions to suppress, or to reveal informants, or to discover background information on the police, are crucial. All legal pressure that can be applied will be applied to win the case.


We thoroughly investigate the case. This means taking the statements of witnesses, independently testing the evidence, DNA, fingerprints, ballistics. We analyze the crime scene, take photos, use a lie detector, consult with experts - whatever it takes to win your case.

Aggressive Defense of Your Case

Our thorough, aggressive approach applies to all stages of your case: Bail, Arraignment, Motions, all the way through Trial and Sentencing, if needed, New Trial, Appeal. We assign 2 lawyers to every case. This way you can always reach an attorney that knows about your case.
