Inspired. Creative. Resourceful.


If you have been charged with theft, vandalism or any other property crime, your freedom could be at risk. Choosing a creative, aggressive criminal defense lawyer can make all the difference in helping you to avoid a conviction.

I am criminal defense attorney Chris W. Blaylock. At my firm, the Law Offices of C.W. Blaylock in Santa Monica, I focus on representing those who have been accused of serious crimes, including theft and other property crimes.

Innovative Representation On Your Side

In California, the value of the property stolen plays an important role in the penalties you could be facing if convicted of a theft crime. For example, grand theft constitutes the taking of property valued over $950 and can be either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending upon the circumstances of the case. A conviction for felony grand theft can bring a penalty of up to three years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

I believe that personal service is important in providing my clients with the effective representation they need. With each of my clients, I take the time to make sure that he or she understands his or her rights and options. I carefully prepare for every case to aggressively defend my clients’ rights in the courtroom.
