La Quinta Criminal Defense Attorney Team

Forest Wilkerson and Joshua Mulligan have been practicing law in the Coachella Valley for almost eight years, working exclusively in criminal defense.  Forest and Josh have handled hundreds of cases originating in La Quinta and our office is conveniently located in Old Town La Quinta.

Cases originating in La Quinta will be heard at the Larson Justice Center.  Forest and Josh have are two lawyers who have been to Larson almost daily for many years and know how to handle their cases.  Your case will benefit from their years of experience in the local community.  They know the Deputy District Attorneys who will be prosecuting your case and the judges that will be deciding important legal issues that will impact you the rest of your life.  Knowing these people’s pet peeves and hot buttons will often help your case as much as understanding the law and mastering the facts of the case.

Forest’s work in the local community has earned her recognition as one of the Coachella Valley’s top criminal defense attorneys in Palm Springs Life Magazine.  In 2014 both Josh and Forest were named top attorneys.  Wilkerson & Mulligan is the only criminal defense law firm with two attorneys on the list.

Forest and Josh’s practice areas include DUI, assault, drug possession, drug sales, domestic violence, gang crimes, gun crimes, sex crimes, child molest and homicide.
