Some of the criminal areas we practice are:
There is a common misconception that if your significant other says they do not want you prosecuted after you have been arrested you will not be prosecuted. That is not true. It's not your significant other against you; it's the people and special prosecuting agencies that deal with these cases. We have dealt with these cases for over 75 combined years and we know who to talk to and what to do to set the matter up and tell your story.
The bottom line is if you possess or sell narcotics you will be prosecuted. We are able in many cases to keep your criminal record clean. Call us and come sit with us. We will talk about your case. We know how to handle narcotics cases.
This is the most commonly charged crime in America and you do not have to be a criminal to get one, but a DUI is in fact a crime and not just a traffic violation and can be serious unless you have a true advocate looking out for you. The potential consequences of a first time DUI are serious. You can end up in jail for 6 months; get 3 years probation; and not to mention the excessive fines. Our Van Nuys DUI Attorneys are specially trained to deal with driving under the influence cases. We deal with the DMV and The Court.We have a law firm specifically designed to take care of these things strategically and confidentially. We will be honest with you about your case from our first meeting. Our Firm will tell you the straight honest truth. We are going to take care of the case for you.

Sentencing is very important in federal matters. Judges have a lot of power now. They have the ability to give a person whatever sentence they want. There are limitations that have become hazy and simply advisory. Our Van Nuys Federal Attorneys know the judges in the central district, have handled cases in front of them, and know their tendencies. The federal system is sophisticated so you need someone who will go right to work, being simplistic, getting the best possible results.
