Criminal Defense Attorney
Prior to becoming an attorney, Ms. Lothrop had an extensive career with the State of California.  Her work at the Attorney General's Office included profiling sex offenders, tracking organized crime suspects and drug traffickers, training law enforcement personnel in Uniform Crime Reporting, and  analyzing legislation.  Her work at the Department of Corrections included counseling High-Risk Serious Habitual Sex Offenders upon their release from state prison.   While at the Board of Control, she proposed recommendations for resolution of appeals filed by crime victims.  Currently, Ms. Lothrop is a criminal defense attorney and is a part-time Faculty Member at the University of Phoenix, where she teaches criminal justice courses.  Because Ms. Lothrop has an extensive background in law enforcement, she is able to provide her clients with  substantial insight into possible defenses which may lead to the dismissal or mitigation of criminal charges.   Ms. Lothrop understands that good people sometimes find themselves in very difficult situations.  Her ultimate goal is to obtain the liberty of each client while maintaining his or her professional and personal life.
