How Our Firm Can Help Protect You
We Believe the Best Defense Is an Effective Offense
Too often, other criminal defense lawyers may view their role in the attorney-client relationship as one where the lawyer must never condescend to the level of their client, keeping them an arm’s distance from recent case developments. As an accomplished firm, we take the exact opposite approach and stay relentlessly devoted to our clients and their best interests. Every member of our team is committed to seeing your case through to a favorable end. To accomplish this, we coordinate our talents, much like a unified team, to produce a defensive strategy that confronts any legal accusation hurled your way.
- We primarily focus on the following types of legal issues:
- Criminal Defense
- Drug Offenses
- Gun Offenses
- Sex Offenses
- Theft Offenses
- Violent Offenses
- Vehicle Code Offenses
Acting immediately after an arrest can be the most powerful aspect of your defense strategy. Call our West Covina criminal defense lawyers.

"Hollyweed" Sign Vandalism Charge Against Our Client Dismissed
Our client was falsely accused of having been connected with vandalism of the Hollywood sign (modified to read "Hollyweed"). Our vandalism charges defense attorneys moved in swiftly to ensure that no charges were levied against our client. We were able to prove that there was no connection between our client and the culprit of that now-infamous vandalism event. Our client avoided arrest and no charges were filed
Criminal Investigation and Prosecution of Man Accused of Child Molestation Dismissed
Our client was accused by the alleged victim's mother of having molested her underage daughter, known as lewd and lascivious conduct with a minor under 14 years old. Our sex crimes defense attorneys challenged the investigating officer and the prosecutor to produce forensic evidence to match up the verbal accusation. It became clear the government could not produce such evidence. Accordingly, our California sex crimes defense lawyers shut down the investigation and prosecution against our client. After approximately one year after the case opening up for investigation, The Los Angeles District Attorney's Office issued a "DA reject", refusing to pursue the matter on account of a lack of evidence. Considering that this easily could have led to lifetime sex offender registration for our client, as well as significant state prison time, this is an amazing victory.
Dismissal of Driving While Intoxicated Charge & Prevention of Battery On a Peace Officer Charge
Our client, a member of the police department, was arrested for suspected driving while intoxicated in violation of California Vehicle Code Section 23152(a). The circumstances of his arrest included altercation with fellow police officers and the prosecutor had ample opportunity to file battery on a police office (a violation of California Penal Code 243(b) and 243(c)). At minimum, the prosecutor could have filed resisting arrest, a violation of California Penal Code 148(a)(1). However, due to our early and aggressive intervention, the prosecutor never filed any such charges though it would have had good reason to do so. They also dismissed the DWI count. Matter resolved for lesser plea. Client served absolutely no jail time on account of this resolution. Another successful result.
DUI with .12 BAC Dismissed in Favor of Reduced No-Jail Charge
A young man with a career in banking, who also seeks to go to law school someday, was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol in violation of California Vehicle Code 23152a and Driving with .08 BAC or higher, in violation of California Vehicle Code 23152b. Our Van Nuys courthouse DUI defense attorneys swept into action and challenged the field sobriety test, the officer's statement and the forensic evidence the prosecutor had amassed against him. Through diligent defense work and negotiating skill, our DUI defense attorneys achieved a DISMISSAL of his DUI charge. Matter resolved for a lesser plea and client served no jail time and his driving record was not besmirched by any DUI conviction.
Neighbor Vandalism Charge Dismissed
Our client came to us dismayed that he was accused of vandalism (a violation of California Penal Code 594), which could've been prosecuted as a felony because of potential high monetary amount of the alleged property damage. He was intoxicated at the time the alleged vandalism occurred, which included extensive damage to a front window of his neighbors home. Our West Covina vandalism defense attorneys sprang into action, spearheading a legal defense effort months in advance of his court date. Exclusively as a result of our early and aggressive criminal defense intervention, the prosecutor declined to prosecute the case. Case dismissed even before the arraignment.
