“ If it was not for Ron, I don't know where me and family would be today. He was able to get my drug offense completely dismissed because the police violated my rights. They pulled me over, arrested me and searched my car for no reason. Ron came in like a surgeon and took the prosecutor's case apart. In the end, the matter was dismissed and I have my freedom and record protected. Thank you!”

San Fernando Valley Criminal Defense Attorney


First and foremost, it is going to take you finding a local criminal defense attorney that appears on a frequent basis in the courthouse your case is pending. That is simply common sense. If you do something all the time, know the people, the system and are well are going to be able to get the job done for your client. The criminal defense community is a very small community and everyone that is on the "inside" knows all the key players that know what they are doing!

I can not tell you how many times I have been sitting in court and see an attorney from the city approaching the prosecutors in either Van Nuys or San Fernando Court and run smack into a buzz saw! First, many criminal defense law firms now a days are using inexperienced attorneys to do the dirty work of actually going to court and fighting it out for the client. These youngsters are going to be eaten alive by an experienced prosecutor. Next, if their firm is in the city, then they are probably more known in the Airport Court or the downtown Los Angeles Courthouses and therefore they do not know the temperment of the prosecutors and judges in the Valley. They do not know who to talk to and what to say to end up with a successful result.

On the other hand, if the client is looking to fight their case in a jury trial, then the attorneys locality to the courthouse is not as important. However, they still must know the tendencies of the jury pool, the prosecutors and the judges, if they want give their client the best possible result. Like anything in life, it is not always what you know, it is who you know. And, in criminal defense, your attorney better know the landcape of the courthouse your case is pending or you will suffer the result.

I personally have been to countless bar dinners, made literally thousands of court appearances and tried hundreds of jury trials over the past 20 plus years of practicing criminal defense and there is no question that if one of my loved ones was in trouble I would choose a local attorney over an outsider any day of the week. It just makes sense to go with someone that has been down the road you are about to travel and had success!
