Reseda is in the middle of the San Fernando Valley. Many people are arrested for crimes either because they live in Reseda and are allegedly committing crimes, or they're passing through and arrested for a crime.

There are also several gangs in that city.  That's where I see a lot of arrests taking place.  They set up a lot of DUI checkpoints on the streets of Reseda, and of course, there are other general crimes that I've handled over the last 26 years of defending people.

Reseda is pretty close to my office in Encino on Ventura Boulevard.  It's probably about ten or fifteen minutes away. So, if you were arrested in the City of Reseda and need an excellent criminal defense attorney who has been doing it a long time, has a lot of experience, and knows the players and the court where your case will be going, too.

You either got a citation, and you have to appear in the Van Nuys Court,  or you were bailed out, and you have a court appearance coming up; either way, what we do is we have you come in.  We go over your entire case with you, and then we start to get our defense strategy together.

Deciding on Best Case Strategy

The first thing we're going to want to decide is whether this is the type of case we're going to fight and try to get a not guilty verdict or a dismissal or whether they have evidence against you that would prove you're involved with a crime.

Then, instead, we need to work out some resolution where we're going to do mitigation, get character letters, find out about your family, your job, and all the things that are important to you so we can kind of paint a different picture than the police who arrested you are going to paint.

Once the police arrest somebody — whether it be the Los Angeles police department or the Sheriffs — or any law enforcement agency — they usually have an eye towards getting a conviction, so they're going to gather the information that supports the conclusion that you're guilty and you did something wrong.

Protecting Your Rights and Freedom

We need to show the other side of the picture and get your version of events across to the prosecutor and the judge.  The prosecutors and judges who will deal with people arrested in Reseda are very fair and level-headed.

But obviously, you're going to want to get a criminal defense attorney who can be your champion and fight back against the police and the prosecutors who are not looking out for you, your rights, your freedom, your reputation, and all the things that are important to you, like protecting your job and protecting your future. Most people who get arrested have families and have a life and want to make sure they can do everything they can to protect themselves.
