Our Los Angeles-area criminal defense lawyers are skilled and experienced in areas including, but not limited to, the following:

DUI/DWI Charges

When your blood-alcohol content (BAC) is .08 or higher while behind the wheel, you’ll be charged with driving while intoxicated. What many people don’t realize is that there are several reasons why BAC levels can appear higher than they really are. Many people also may not realize that police officers have to follow strict protocols for DUI charges to stick. Criminal defense lawyers from our office do realize things. Learn how we might be able to help you. 

Probation Violation

A probation is the start of a second chance–for someone convicted of a crime to stay out of prison under strict conditions. A probation revocation hearing threatens to undo all of that. Those charged with violating the terms of their probation face process rules that work against them at a hearing. Learn how a good lawyer can help them work through it. 

Tax Evasion 

The Internal Revenue Service brings more than its share of resources to any legal battle over allegedly unpaid taxes. It’s important that your own criminal defense lawyer be adept in understanding all the IRS has to prove and to zealously advocate for your interests. Read how you can be defended against tax evasion charges

Money Laundering

Money laundering is relied on by everyone from the local drug dealer to an international arms kingpin. The schemes are complex enough that it’s not hard for people to be unwittingly caught in the web of deception. The penalties can be severe. It’s not a legal battle that anyone should fight alone. Read about how money laundering works, how it could ensnare you and how we may be able to help if it does. 


Theft is a term often used interchangeably with robbery and burglary, but these are in fact three different crimes with three different sets of penalties. That also means there can be different types of evidence required by the prosecution. Learn precisely what theft is and the multiple avenues of defense that are available to those charged with it. 


Narcotics charges cover a lot of legal ground. It can be anyone charged with having a small bag of drugs in their car to the person charged with selling and distributing to an entire area of town. The potential penalties differ based on everything from the type of drug involved to what the accused was allegedly doing with the drug. There are also high burdens of proof for the authorities to hurdle. Before anyone rushes to take a plea deal, they should learn how a criminal defense lawyer can help. 

Illegal Search & Seizure

It’s not enough for the police to have evidence against you. They also need to obtain that evidence the right way. These are requirements that are more than mere “technicalities.” These protections to defendants are fundamental, articulated in the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. A criminal defense lawyer knows your rights and to ensure the authorities are doing their own jobs within the framework of the law. Learn more about what that means in the real world when you discuss your illegal search and seizure case
