I’ve been practicing criminal defense now in the Encino area for 26 years. My office is at 16000 Ventura Boulevard up in the penthouse. That address is in the famous movie Scarface in numerous scenes. It’s a great location.
I’ve been there for a long time and obviously helping people in the city of Encino. I know the area very well and I’ve represented many people who have been arrested in the Encino area.
Their court case will end up in Van Nuys if they’re arrested in the city of Encino, and of course, the Van Nuys court is about ten minutes from my office. My office is on Ventura Boulevard and I meet with a lot of people there.
Right now, during the coronavirus, I’m meeting with a lot of people over the phone. Sometimes we meet via some other outlet so we can see each other. I’m also meeting in person where we both just wear masks and keep the social distancing going.
Criminal Lawyer Local to Van Nuys Courthouse
If you or a loved one has a criminal case and you were arrested in the city of Encino and you need help, you’re going to want somebody who’s been local to the Van Nuys court and local to the San Fernando Valley criminal defense scene which I have now for a long time.
I encourage you to check out my review and check out my website. I have over 300 videos on YouTube that cover pretty much every area in criminal defense, so you can kind of get a feel for that. I’ve also written five books on some important topics that I see coming up over and over again.
But really what we do is, if you or a loved one has been arrested, we set up a meeting in my Encino office. We go over everything in the privacy of my office, and probably at first we’re going to try to figure out if the case is one that needs to be fought all the way to a jury trial and whether there’s some good issues that we can prevent any type of criminal conviction whatsoever.
Seeking Best Outcome on Your Criminal Case
The next thing we’re going to look at is, if we can’t get the case dismissed or if the case is not the right type of case to take to jury trial, then we’ll start talking about what proposed resolutions could be in a case like yours.
Having handled thousands of cases for people who have been arrested in the city of Encino over the last 26 years, I can usually give you a pretty good idea of what you’re going to be facing in your criminal case, no matter what type of a crime it is.
I’ve handled pretty much every crime you can think of, been in all the courtrooms, doing jury trials, negotiating cases in the Van Nuys courthouse, so I have a pretty good feel for what someone’s looking at.
What it will take to beat the prosecutors and when it’s a case where we want to try to do damage control and put together a mitigation package with character letters and information about all the good things in your life.
This all an effort to prevent some of the bad things that can come your way when it comes to getting a criminal conviction, being put on probation or being sent to prison, and then all the terms and conditions that can be heaped on you by a judge.
Lawyer Familiar with Judges and Prosecutors
I’m very familiar with the judges that are handling the type of case that you’re probably going to be looking at. I’ve also dealt with all of the prosecutors who staff the various courthouses in the San Fernando Valley that would cater to Encino like the Van Nuys courthouse, the San Fernando courthouse.
Really, Los Angeles county is kind of cut up into different jurisdictions and the main two courts in the San Fernando Valley where Encino is, are the Van Nuys court and the San Fernando court,
So, obviously you’d want to get an attorney who’s familiar with dealing with the prosecutors there, dealing with law enforcement there, also someone who has experience and knows how to investigate a criminal defense case, knows how to file the right motions if they’re applicable in our particular case in order to make sure that we can achieve the best possible result.
So, if you were arrested in Encino, pick up the phone now. Make the call. I stand at the ready to help you and to guard your rights, your reputation and your freedom.
