Arson Requires An Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney

Arson in California is a complex crime, and can be tried, in certain circumstances as a misdemeanor, or more often as a felony. In addition to prison terms for the arson act itself, California law can also impose enhancements to an arson sentence, based on the circumstances of the case and/or conviction.

If you’ve been arrested for arson, you need an experienced, aggressive criminal defense attorney like Robert Helfend. Mr. Helfend has practiced criminal defense exclusively for 30 years in Los Angeles courts and takes even the toughest arson defense cases.
