"Our government ... teaches ... by its example.  If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy." -- Justice Louis D. Brandeis, dissenting in Olmstead v. United States (1928) 277 U.S. 438, 485

Attorney Shirley J. Boney is a solo practitioner; and a proud member of the Cherokee Nation.  Practice Overview

Fresno Criminal Defense Attorney Shirley J. Boney graduated from University of California, Berkeley and Boston University School of Law.  She
has extensive experience in Fresno as a criminal defense attorney. 
Attorney Boney understands and appreciates the important role of the Criminal Defense Attorney in our criminal judicial system.  She aggressively and diligently defends the rights of her clients who are facing criminal prosecution.  Whether the legal issue involved is a matter of a lack of probable cause, an illegal search and seizure, the lack of a search warrant, a coerced confession, the use of excessive force, or the failure to properly give a Miranda Warning, Attorney Boney understands the importance of an early independent investigation into the facts.  Attorney Boney knows the police do not always conduct full and adequate, or fair, investigations.  Attorney Boney understands well that absent a zealous representation in defense of criminal allegations, the freedom we all enjoy would give way to a state of oppression for all.  
With this in mind, Attorney Boney vigorously defends the rights of both adults and juveniles (children) who have been charged with a variety of criminal law violations ranging from relatively minor misdemeanors to serious and violent felonies. 

The criminal defense attorney to whom you entrust your criminal law matters should be both experienced and personally attentive; as well as responsive to your ongoing inquiries concerning your case.  In that regard, as a solo practitioner, Fresno Criminal Defense Attorney Shirley J. Boney is able to offer the personal guidance and service that each client deserves.  Call 559-312-6760 
today to speak directly with Ms. Boney regarding a free initial consultation wherein you may discuss with her the criminal allegations against you for which you seek legal representation.  



The law practice of Fresno Criminal Defense Attorney Shirley J. Boney includes, but is not limited to, representation of adults and juveniles in the following matters:

  • Conspiracy
  • Criminal Threats
  • Robbery / Theft Crimes
  • Burglary:  Commercial / Residential
  • Auto Theft / Receiving Stolen Property
  • Juvenile Cases:  Adult Court & Juvenile Court
  • Probation Violation

The Law Office of Shirley J. Boney recommends the initiation of an early, strong defense against criminal allegations, regardless of how minor they may seem; as failure to do so can result in unfavorable consequences that could have been avoided. 

If you are facing criminal charges and wish to protect your legal rights
, it is recommended that you seek legal representation right away, rather than "waiting to see what happens".  The recommended course of action is that you speak to an attorney about your case before your first court appearance.  While the burden of proving each and every element of the charged offense(s) is on the government, the charges would not have been filed if the District Attorney did not think they could prove its case against you.   

You may call 559-312-6760 to speak directly with Fresno Criminal Defense Attorney Boney and arrange for a free initial consultation if you would like to discuss with her the criminal allegations and charges filed by the District Attorney against you.
