Summary

Antonio A. Cota has been in private criminal defense practice in Southern California since 2003. Since that time, he has successfully represented hundreds of people accused of drug and alcohol related offenses including medical marijuana dispensary related cases and DUI allegations.

Mr. Cota earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy. Eventually, after discovering how hard it is to earn a living as a philosopher, he won a scholarship for law school at Western State University College of Law in Fullerton, California. During law school, he worked as an intern at the Orange County District Attorney's office. Afterward, he focused on criminal defense.

Mr. Cota regularly consults with Nassiri Law Group on industry-related matters and often handles marijuana-related criminal matters referred by Nassiri Law Group.

Although he is far too busy keeping clients out of jail to enjoy much free time, he sometimes escapes for camping and fishing trips with his wife and two dogs.
