Our Areas of Practice
Any number of behaviors could land you in jail and facing serious criminal charges. Whether or not you are guilty of the charges pending in your name, you will need the aggressive skills of a defensive attorney on your side. Nowhere is this truer than in Long Beach County, where strict laws and stringent law enforcement officers are quick to arrest; some court officials are even quicker to convict. After being charged with a crime anywhere in in the Los Angeles or Long Beach areas, your first move should be to contact a criminal defense attorney from our firm. With the help of an experienced professional on your side, defense against the following charges may be possible:
Charges of domestic violence can be incurred even when no physical force is involved. Verbal abuse and threats could also land someone in trouble with the law on charges of this nature.
The price of being convicted of DUI is costly and often involves license suspension, hefty fines, and community service, just to name a few.
Being convicted of your drug possession charges will go on your permanent record and be publicly viewable by future employers.
