The crime rates in Westwood are still higher than the U.S. average, which can leave law enforcement with a perspective that is quick to accuse you without all the facts.

Criminal Defense Practice Areas

My comprehensive experience in the Westwood courtrooms includes many different types of criminal defense practice areas. This includes everything from misdemeanor charges to felonies. While no two cases are the same, it is always good to be reassured that the lawyer you choose has had experience with many types of cases in your area, including:

  • Burglary – Burglary is a very serious offense and can mean a felony on your record if convicted. Whether the burglary charge ends up a misdemeanor or a felony is up to the courts discression which is why getting a good criminal defense lawyer is so crucial.
  • Robbery – Robbery is an offense taken very seriously in Westwood because it is one that police and prosecutors are cracking down on in the area. Robbery and armed robbery will apply to California’s three strikes law which is why keeping this conviction off your record should be a priority.
  • Federal Crimes – My experience with the federal sentencing guidelines allows me to gain an advantage in this specific area. If you have dealt with federal investigators, I have the ability to help with uncompromising defense strategies and help defend against techniques used by the most serious federal prosecutors.
  • Drug and DUI Crimes – Whether DUI, possession, manufacturing, trafficking or distribution, my firm has decades of experience to build the defense you need to fight for your freedom. This includes marijuana crimes and medical marijuana related charges.
