Our lawyers can investigate every detail of your case in order to preserve evidence and to build the strongest possible argument in your defense. We always think outside of the box in order to come up with creative resolutions.

  • Driving Under the Influence: Highway Patrol officers can only make a stop or arrest for driving under the influence (DUI) with proper evidence and grounds to do so. Our firm can investigate your (DUI) case to uncover police misconduct and have your case thrown out or your charges dismissed.
  • Drug offenses: From charges of marijuana possession to trafficking cocaine, our lawyers have the experience and the aggressive methods to fight your charges. We can give our full attention to defending you from the harsh penalties that come with a drug crime conviction.
  • Domestic violence: Accusations of domestic abuse are often made by nosy neighbors, frightened children, angry spouses, and others. Our attorneys can skillfully defend you and prove that you have not placed your loved ones in danger or caused them harm through violence or threatened violence.
  • Juvenile crimes: Minors are generally treated differently by the justice system, but it is vital that you retain a skilled juvenile defense lawyer to defend them. Otherwise, your child could have a damaging criminal record and may even be sent to a juvenile hall.

Should I talk to the police?

No. Police officers routinely try to coerce people into talking. They threaten them with warrants and other dire consequences. All the while, they claim that they have their best interests in mind. Simply put, they don’t.

Do you handle state or federal criminal cases?

We take on the complexities of both.

Will you refer my case to another law firm?

No. Regardless of the severity of the criminal accusations, we handle all aspects of your case. In fact, we are particularly skilled in defending people charged with sex crimes and homicides in Los Angeles and Orange County.

What is arraignment?

It is your first opportunity to enter a plea of not guilty, guilty, or no contest. Pleading not guilty will lead to setting bail. Guilty and no-contest pleas go directly to sentencing hearings.

If I know I am guilty, do I even need a lawyer?

Yes. You are still entitled to an aggressive defense from an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who can get charges reduced or overturn them entirely.

What if I wasn’t read my Miranda Rights?

The most likely outcome is that your case will be dismissed. However, evidence obtained from your statement can still be used in court.

Will I be arrested for refusing to make a statement to the police?

No. You have the right to remain silent under the Fifth Amendment while being interrogated. If a police officer continues to pressure you to waive your rights, request that you speak to an attorney.

What if I refuse a chemical test after being pulled over for drunk driving?

Refusals have immediate and dire consequences, including automatic one-year suspension of your license and a possible jail sentence.

What happens at trial?

Prior to the start of trial proceedings, a jury is chosen with the requirement that they be fair and impartial at every step. Trials start with opening statements. From there, your lawyer will present evidence and members of the jury will determine if you are guilty or not guilty.
