Nicholas Ynda has been a practicing criminal trial lawyer since 2010. He has developed a record of winning criminal defense trials and getting cases dismissed via pre-trial motion across the State of California, including Orange County (Newport Beach, Westminster, Santa Ana, and Fullerton), Los Angeles County (Long Beach, Bellflower, Downey, Torrance, Los Angeles, Norwalk, El Monte, West Covina, Pomona, Whittier, etc). Mr. Ynda firmly believes that everyone deserves a great defense from experienced trial lawyers and he makes sure that the full weight of his knowledge and skills will be used to defend every client to the maximum extent allowed by law. He is a licensed attorney in both California and England. This breadth of experience has deepened his knowledge of the law and strengthened his criminal defense skills to get the best outcomes for the clients of the McCready Law Group. The law is constantly changing, and he continually stays updated on all changes in the law, always looking to benefit the client. In addition to his law practice, I spent the last 10 years counseling individuals and families as a Christian pastor, which furthered his ability to understand and clearly communicate with every client and their family. As a fluent Spanish speaker, I look forward to assisting clients from all backgrounds.
