A Defense Attorney With Law Enforcement Experience

Prior to becoming an attorney, Mr. Broughton had more than 10 years of experience in law enforcement and as a sergeant on a Bay Area law enforcement agency. As a result, he has a keen understanding and insight into the review of a case. He works hard to provide affordable, quality legal representation tailored to each client’s unique situation. His in-depth understanding of correct police procedure enables him to detect improprieties, and he fights hard to have evidence suppressed and cases dismissed when he discovers that evidence has been illegally obtained.

Dedicated to each and every client, criminal defense lawyer Terence D. Broughton provides one-on-one service, thoroughly preparing all cases as if they were going to go to trial from day one. An in-depth evaluation of your case is commenced immediately, witnesses are located and interviewed, and evidence is identified and preserved. Clients are kept up to date at every stage of their case. In addition to representing clients in DUI, drug charges and domestic violence offenses, attorney Broughton also defends clients faced with a wide range of other criminal charges.

Terry helped me through this DUI issue by handling everything from a DMV hearing to negotiating a bearable settlement. I would refer anyone in my circle of family and friends to Terry. He always kept me informed and gave me peace of mind.

Terry has been helping me with a first-offense DUI. I really had no idea what to expect in terms of dealing with the court. Terry met with me and has been nothing short of awesome. There haven’t been any surprises, and I know he has saved me thousands of dollars in the long run…


This is the best money I have ever spent… not only is Terence extremely professional but he actually cares about his clients!!! If u messed up and need someone on your side this is the man for you. Kind and knowledgeable. Call Terence.
