Bel Air is a residential community in Los Angeles. Located on the west side of L.A., the area is part of the Platinum Triangle of L.A. residential areas – an informal designation given to Beverly Hills, Holby Hills and Bel Air. Bel Air is generally considered of the most affluent areas in the Los Angeles area and is characterized by private residences and dense foliage. Hotel Bel Air and the Bel Air Country Club are located in the heart of the community. The neighborhood is located approximately 12 miles west of central L.A. Part of the area extends into the Santa Monica Mountains foothills.

Bel Air was founded by Alphonzo E. Bell, Sr. in 1923 – a multimillionaire and real estate developer. As a lifelong resident of the L.A. area, Mr. Bell contributed greatly to the community as a philanthropist and was a champion tennis player. His business ventures included establishing the Bell petroleum Co. with his father in the early 1920s and cultivating one of the richest oil fields in the state of California. He also founded Bel Air Estates and designed the Bel Air Country Club. Mr. Bell died in 1947. Today, Bel Air carries on his legacy as a beautiful and upscale residential community.

Practice Areas

As a criminal defense attorney, I am familiar with every facet of the legal process. I have defended a multitude of clients and can help you. Have you been charged with drunk driving? DUI is a serious crime with serious penalties. Let me help you stand up for your rights in court. With decades of legal experience, I have the understanding of criminal defense and the practical knowledge to help you get the favorable case outcome.

Federal crimes are taken very seriously in the United States. Depending on the type of federal crime you have been accused of, you may face years in prison, exorbitant fines and probation. Your freedom isn't the only thing that's at stake though; your reputation and well-being can suffer, too. Antittrust violations, money laundering, tax crimes and social security fraud are some of the federal crimes that I handle. If you've been accused of identity theft or fraud I can assist you. Murder is one of the most serious criminal charges you can face. If you've been accused of taking the life of another human being, you need an aggressive and powerful defense attorney going to bat for you in court. Call today and see what I can do for your case.
