Karlstrom & Krebs Decades of Legal Experience On Your Side

Kenneth H. Krebs

With thousands of cases handled throughout California, Kenneth H. Krebs has the legal insight and prowess you need both inside and outside of court. His fairness, integrity, and competency have earned him the respect of judges and peers alike.

As an Alameda County criminal defense lawyer, he has devoted his practice solely to criminal defense matters. Mr. Krebs has handled nearly every type of criminal case and has served on the Alameda County court-appointed conflict panel, as well as the Federal Defenders conflicts panel. In addition, he has argued criminal cases before most of the California Courts of Appeal.

Among Mr. Krebs' many criminal cases, he represented one of the defendants in U.S. vs. Blanco. This case was the largest federal drug conspiracy case ever brought forward to the Federal Court in California. He has also published two appellate decisions: People v. Albright and People v. Diaz , the latter which served as the authority for the joyriding jury instruction.

A lifelong resident of Alameda County, Mr. Krebs grew up in Pleasanton and went to California State University Hayward. He earned his law degree from the University of San Francisco's School of Law, which is ranked among the most prestigious law schools in California. During law school, he clerked for the Honorable Frank Shaw, San Francisco Superior Court, who was then presiding over the Mitchell Brothers pornography trials.

After law school, he worked for a criminal defense firm in Livermore for three years before joining forces with his wife, Leslie R. Karlstrom-Krebs and starting Law Offices of Karlstrom & Krebs. He prides himself on providing client-focused and reliable legal representation to his clients.
