William Kroger

Attorney banner img headshot compressor

William S. Kroger is the founder of Kroger Law Group, based in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles, CA.  A practicing attorney since 1997, Mr. Kroger attributes his success to his personal attention to each client. He reviews every case personally and does not delegate them to associates in his office.

Mr. Kroger was born in Los Angeles and attended Pepperdine University in Malibu, Oxford University in England-the Institute on International and Comparative Law and the University of West Los Angeles.

Unlike most criminal defense attorneys, I have never prosecuted or investigated anyone on behalf of a governmental entity. Many defense attorneys are proud of their accomplishments as prosecutors who worked to put people in prison. Criminal defense work requires a distinctive mindset. I have and always have been, and shall forever remain 100% defense-oriented, placing checks on the power of the prosecution, and prying investigators.”

The working relationship he has cultivated with judges, district attorneys, court clerks, and other lawyers can only be established by several years of defending clients in court on a daily basis.

Many defense attorneys were former prosecutors who, at some point in their careers, switched sides. They are proud of their work putting people in jail, but now they are defending those charged with the same crimes they once enforced.

Mr. Kroger has never worked as a prosecutor and believes that effective legal defense demands a 100% defense orientation — which former prosecutors who gave out jail sentences, can't understand.

By dedicating his career and practice entirely to criminal defense, Mr. Kroger has a unique understanding of the stakes involved for those who've been arrested and charged with a crime. His loyalties are entirely with the defense of his client. Ensuring that defendants are treated fairly and are represented with the best legal defense possible has always been of utmost concern to Mr. Kroger.
