I’ve handed hundreds of cases for people who either live in the city of Northridge or were arrested in the city of Northridge on criminal charges. The college, Cal State Northridge is obviously there, and I’ve represented a bunch of college students and I have a pretty good reputation in the San Fernando Valley.
If you’re arrested in the city of Northridge, your case will either be handled by the San Fernando courthouse or the Van Nuys courthouse, depending on exactly where you were arrested and which law enforcement agency arrested you.
Whether it’s Devonshire — usually if you’re anywhere near the college, is going to be the one that will be doing the arresting in the city of Northridge.
Californian State Northridge Police Department
Northridge is a great city full of beautiful areas and the police are very concerned, especially around the college, that there’s no crime. So, they’re out in force. Believe it or not, CSUN police actually have the ability to arrest people just like regular police do.
Then they end up dealing with the case and giving it to the prosecutors themselves or they’ll send it off to the LAPD or the Sheriffs depending on who they get involved with the arrest.
But you, the person who’s been arrested, obviously you’ve got concerns. You need to do some things and typically what I have you do if you were arrested in the city of Northridge is, you pick up the phone. You call me. We’ll get you in. We’ll sit down and go over everything.
Right now, it’s the coronavirus, but we can still meet with masks on, that’s not a problem, go over what happened, talk about it and really try to figure out a game plan for how we’re going to deal with it. Is it going to be a case where we’re going to say you’re not guilty and fight the case?
Or, is there evidence that you did something wrong and we need to work out some sort of a plea bargain with the prosecutors.
Working Out a Resolution with Prosecutor
If we are going to work out a resolution with the prosecutors, then I’m going to need you and I to huddle up, get some character letters together find out about you, your future, your job, your family, and all the good things about you because a lot of times when the police arrest you.
What they’re trying to build a case against you instead of really trying to get the full picture about what happened. So, sometimes we get a lopsided version from them that’s slanted against you and it’s my job, as your criminal defense attorney to defend you.
If you’ve been arrested in the city of Northridge, I want to make sure that we get your side of the story across to the prosecutor and the judge and make sure we get a fair resolution in your case
Review of Evidence Against You
That takes us going through the paperwork, seeing exactly what they’re claiming that you did wrong criminal-wise, what evidence they have against you, what witnesses they have.
Sometimes we have to do our own investigation and get evidence that’s helpful to you to be able to show the judge and prosecutor both sides of the story. That’s crucial in criminal defense and I’m very good at doing that.
I’ve handled hundreds of cases in the city of Northridge and around the campus of Cal State Northridge and I can definitely help you with yours. What I would suggest you do is pick up the phone. Make the call now. I can get working on the case.
Once the case goes to court I’ll talk to the prosecutors and the judges on your behalf who I have a good working relationship with and I will figure out a game plan.
Obviously with your assistance, to make sure that we protect your rights, your freedom, your reputation and everything that is important to you and get you out of the criminal justice system as fast as possible.
