About Darryl A. Stallworth
Attorney At Law

After playing football at UC Berkeley and graduating with a B.A. in political science, I decided to enter into the legal profession and dedicate my life to protecting the rights of the criminally accused in my community and abroad.

For over a decade, I’ve been working with individuals throughout Oakland, CA, and Alameda County to provide them with strong representation against whatever criminal charges they may be facing.

With 15 years as a former prosecutor, I know how to challenge the prosecution. Like a football player who previously played for the rival team, I understand the strategies the other side uses — and how to discredit them. Let me put these experiences to work for you.

The most important thing you can do for yourself when you’ve been charged with a serious crime is to stay calm and cooperate with law enforcement. Actions to the contrary will only hurt your case.


This step can be critical to the outcome of your case. It is not mandatory that you answer any questions about the investigation without a lawyer present. As you have probably heard on TV, “Anything you say can and will be held against you in court.”


When you need trusted legal advice, call me. I can help ensure that your rights are protected every step of the way. I will do all that I can to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

Don't face your charges alone

I can defend your
rights in court

With extensive litigation experience, I have the knowledge and expertise needed to give you a fighting chance if your case goes to court. I will help make sure you are ready.

If there is one thing I’ve learned throughout the years, it’s how devastating a criminal conviction can be on a person’s life. Whether you’re facing a minor misdemeanor or something more substantial like murder or sexual assault, a guilty verdict can have lifelong consequences. This is why it is essential to have an experienced criminal defense attorney who actually cares about your well-being.

Whether you need a drug possession or DUI lawyer, or legal advice for murder and sexual assault charges, I’m here to advocate for you. Call Darryl A. Stallworth Law Office at (510) 907-6644 to start building your defense today!
