I have over 40 years of experience and have done well over 200 jury trials all over Los Angeles County. If you hire me, you will hire an attorney who is not in the business of wasting your time and money. It is my duty to see that your case is handled with your best interests in mind. While each trial has similar elements, I treat each case as if it was the most important thing in the world because if the case is yours, it is.
My job is not to hold your hand while collecting a retainer. Not every case should go to trial, but too often lawyers take the path of least resistance while their clients get a raw deal. Part of my job is to make sure you understand how the law applies to your case and the other part is to present your case to a jury in a sympathetic, favorable way.
I know many of the judges and prosecutors in Los Angeles County and especially in Santa Clarita and San Fernando. If you are accused of DUI, drug crimes, gang activity, violent crimes or are in need of any other type of criminal defense, it is absolutely necessary to examine your options. As your attorney, I will evaluate, investigate, and research issues in your case with experts in science, gangs, other fields necessary to provide you with a fair outcome for your case.
California lawmakers are continually trying to expand the scope of the law. California has some of the harshest and toughest sentencing laws in the United States. Never for a minute should you believe California is a “laid- back” state. It is not. Now more than ever before, automatic sentencing, prior strikes and enhancements are robbing years of freedom from citizens like you. Because of these new laws and sentencing conditions, it is crucial that you understand the repercussions of a plea bargain or consequences of a conviction at trial before making any decision regarding your case. As your attorney, I will guide you based on what is best for you, not just what is easier.
