Antonio A. Cota

Trial Attorney Of Counsel

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.

From the moment I walked in until the moment I stepped out, I felt welcome at Damian’s law offices. His staff is very courteous, and Damian conversates with you in a manner that is understandable. He leaves the lawyer talk for the courthouses and really explains the laws in detail, but at the same time in a manner so that the average Joe can follow. Thank you for your services! Rodrigo Aranda
