Criminal Defense Practice areas

I have over 30 years’ experience defending a number of different charges. This list includes:

  • Burglary — Depending on the circumstances of the charges and the defendant’s criminal record, this can be either a misdemeanor or felony. However, even a misdemeanor burglary charge can result in up to a year in jail and fines. This is why it is important to have an experienced Burbank criminal defense attorney on your side.
  • Identity Theft — Fraud cases and identity theft increased in Burbank by 7 percent last year. This includes situations involving mail fraud, stolen credit cards, and using stolen passwords. Identity theft can include a lot more than just those instances. Legal defenses include that you did not intend on using the information illegally and being falsely accused. There are many other defenses for identity theft depending on the circumstances.
  • DUI – This charge has many defenses. It will be key to challenge the results of any sobriety tests that was administered including breath, blood or roadside sobriety. Many of these sobriety tests can be inaccurate.
  • Sex Crimes – Having a sex crime on your record can haunt you for the rest of your life. Once you are labeled as a criminal of this nature, there are many regulations that you must follow. The law regarding sex crimes can be very tricky and having an experienced lawyer represent you is crucial.
