Fighting For Your Rights in Los Angeles
We pride ourselves on providing personalized service to each and every client we serve. We take your legal issues very seriously and we fight aggressively to see that your rights are protected.
Our experience and knowledge of the law allows us to work efficiently and effectively on your behalf to resolve your case. Your decision on which criminal defense lawyer to retain can have a direct impact on your personal and professional life.
We focus exclusively on criminal defense and will not just simply seek to negotiate a plea bargain, which means you would have to enter a “guilty” or “no content” plea to the court.
If you are convicted of a crime involving moral turpitude, you could be facing serious collateral consequences, such as deportation, or loss of a professional license.
Our criminal defense lawyers will guide you through every step of the complex criminal justice system, including seeking a bail reduction to be released from jail. It's important to understand the difference between a California arrest warrant and a search warrant.
We can also help you reduce a felony conviction to a misdemeanor, motion to withdraw a plea, and file a motion for factual innocence. Call our law office to discuss your particular case and options with our lawyers.
