Attorney Profile: Robert M. Helfend

California state laws come down hard on the criminally accused. Therefore, it is absolutely imperative for individuals who have been arrested and charged in the Los Angeles area to immediately seek strong legal defense against the charges that are being filed. I am attorney Robert M. Helfend and I have been servicing the greater Los Angeles area regarding legal matters of criminal defense since 1984. With more than 30 years of legal experience under my belt, there is almost nothing I haven’t seen when it comes to criminal allegations at both the state and federal level. That being said, you can count on my ability to represent you at every stage of the legal game, for every criminal allegation you may be facing.

I have dedicated my professional life to vehemently defending those who have been criminally accused in the Los Angeles area, including the communities of Bel Air, Bellflower, Beverly Hills, and Santa Monica. I focus exclusively on matters related to criminal law, so you can rest assured that my time and attention will not be divided while working to defend and represent your case. In fact, my focus will be solely on providing you with the most cutting-edge defense methods available. Criminal charges require the hard-hitting defense tactics of a criminal defense attorney; anything less could quickly result in a formal conviction. At my firm, you can be guaranteed that innovative methods and aggressive skills will be put to work in your defense because I understand that anything short of that would be insufficient to meet the needs and best interests of my clients. I refuse to watch an innocent person be put in jail; therefore, I will do everything in my power to ensure that your charges do not become lifetime penalties.

Legal Defense Attorney Credentials

After an arrest and charges have been made in Los Angeles, you should be looking for a legal defense attorney who can provide more than just the promise of a future free from conviction. Your legal defender should be able to back up any promises with sound schooling, winning case histories, and 100% dedication to your case. Therefore, allow me to share a little about my schooling and history as a trial lawyer.

I spent my undergrad years at the University of California, Berkeley, where I graduated in 1980. I then went on to complete my law degree at Pepperdine University School of Law. In 1983, I finished my grad school years and almost immediately joined the field of criminal defense; I have been exclusively practicing criminal defense law since 1984. Now, with more than three decades of experience to my name, I can honestly say that I have played an integral part in more than 65 jury trials in Southern California, many of which have ended successfully for my clients.

Favorable results don’t happen coincidentally; they are the result of a lot of hard work, dedication, and relentless defense tactics. I speak from personal experience when I say these things, as none of my cases have been won without 100% dedication on my end. I personally handle each and every case that my firm takes on and I won’t rest until I feel secure in knowing that everything possible has been done to better the chances of a positive case outcome for my clients. This has been my standard of operation for more than 30 years, and it will continue to be so for many years to come.
