Practice Areas We Handle
Our knowledgeable Los Angeles criminal defense attorney has experience with an array of practice areas. If you’re facing a criminal charge, you need an attorney with experience in the specific laws you’re being accused of violating. We can help with misdemeanors and felonies, including the following:
If you are accused of willfully and maliciously setting fire to or causing to explode a structure, forest, or property, you may be charged with arson. Arson crimes are typically felonies that can result in years in prison and significant fines.
This crime involves the attempt and present ability to commit a violent injury to another person. Simple assault is a misdemeanor, but aggravated assault may result in felony charges.
Different than assault, which is the attempt at causing harm, battery is the actual use of unlawful force against another person resulting in injuries. Simple battery is a misdemeanor under California law; however, the law may charge battery against certain individuals, such as police officers, as a felony in some circumstances.
Domestic violence crimes may result in restraining orders, jail time, fines, and collateral consequences to both divorce and child custody proceedings. It’s important to seek the assistance of a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney to help you with these charges.
DUI / DWI
If you are facing a charge for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you may face both criminal charges as well as administrative penalties as a DMV hearing. We will work to have your charges dropped or reduced so you can maintain your life going forward.
Although many marijuana crimes have been decriminalized in California, the state is still harsh on drug crimes. If you’re facing possession, trafficking, manufacturing, or other charges, we can help you navigate the legal system.
If you are charged with a felony, your sentencing could be enhanced if you’re accused of taking part in a street gang. Even participation in a street gang is a crime in California. Contact our experienced Los Angeles criminal defense attorney today to find out how we can build your defense.
Manslaughter and murder charges can be complex. You therefore need someone on your side throughout the investigation and court process to make sure you protect your rights.
Juveniles may face some of the same charges adults face; however, there are others that are unique. The juvenile justice system is designed to rehabilitate instead of simply punish.
If you move another person a substantial distance by force or fear without their consent, you may face charges of kidnapping. Prosecutors must prove every element of this crime beyond any reasonable doubt to secure a conviction.
If you are on probation, you must follow rules in order to avoid further incarceration. If you’re dealing with accusations of violating any terms of probation, you should seek the help of a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney to avoid the harshest penalties.
Misdemeanor and felony sex crimes can result in incarceration, fines, and lifetime sex offender registration, as well as severe consequences to your personal life. To preserve both your reputation and future, you need an experienced attorney.
Theft crimes in California may be misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the amount of property in question. You need a strong Los Angeles criminal defense attorney to offer defense against such accusations.
Property crimes such as vandalism may be the result of an accident or misunderstanding. We will listen to your story and help you avoid large fines and jail time.
White Collar Crimes
Most white collar crimes do not involve violence, but instead focus on illegal actions such as fraud for financial benefit. Even though they are not violent in nature, white collar crimes can have serious criminal penalties.
Criminal Charges Against Military Members
If you are a combat veteran facing court, you deserve to be treated with respect. You may be dealing with severe post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or a traumatic brain injury (TBI), which the court should consider. We can guide you through the criminal court process to ensure you the best outcome possible.
Can I Expunge My Criminal Record?
You can’t expunge all crimes from a criminal record in California. If you have questions about clearing your record, we can help. Our Los Angeles criminal defense attorney will guide you through the process of filing a petition with the court, presenting evidence, and asking the judge to vacate your conviction. We can also evaluate the ability to seal your record or otherwise remove your arrest or conviction from the public eye.
