After 17 years of prosecuting serious criminal cases, Ms. Krinick transitioned into the private practice of law.  Naturally she has defended serious criminal cases on the Peninsula and surrounding localities.  Her years of prosecuting child abusers led her to continue to advocate for the best interests of children in child custody cases.  Often described as a “shark," she has devoted her career to protecting children.
