Experienced criminal defense lawyer in the San Fernando Valley

The criminal justice system can be intimidating. It doesn’t matter if you’re facing a misdemeanor allegation or more serious criminal charges like domestic violence or sex crimes, the system is designed to scare you into to quickly confessing and accepting a punishment.

Law enforcement will do whatever it can to interview you without an attorney present. They’ll use the opportunity to trot out scary examples of long sentences in order to quickly coerce a confession. 

If you or someone you love is being held by the police in the San Fernando Valley, your first call should be to an experienced criminal defense attorney. Your attorney will meet you wherever you are. You then have a Constitutionally guaranteed right to meet with them in private, where you can give your attorney a download on the situation and begin building your defense.
