Banning Criminal Defense

Forest Wilkerson and Joshua Mulligan have practiced law in Riverside County for the past eight years and have handled many cases originating in Banning.

Cases originating in the Banning area will be heard at the Superior Court in Banning.  Cases on track for jury trial are currently being sent to Riverside for trial.  However, the new courthouse in Banning is scheduled for completion soon and Banning cases should be heard locally.

Forest and Josh have practiced extensively in front of the judges in Banning.  In fact, one of the judges is Forest’s former supervisor.  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.  Understanding these individuals’ personalities 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 2013 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 lawyers 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.
