Review of Case to Determine Defense Strategy
Sherman Oaks has a lot of bars and different things going on up and down Ventura Boulevard and the surrounding communities. I've represented hundreds of people who have been arrested and charged with crimes in the San Fernando Valley and the Sherman Oaks area.
All those cases have one thing in common: they end up in the Van Nuys Courthouse, which is about ten minutes from my office in Encino. So, if you've been arrested or a loved one you know has been arrested, and you're concerned about bail and hiring a criminal defense attorney who can help, you've come to the right place.
My suggestion is that you pick up the phone. Give me a call and set up a meeting. We can usually meet within a day or two, and let's look into what happened in the case. Whether it's a case that we're going to try to get dismissed or a topic that's going to go to a jury trial, or maybe it's a case like many cases in the Sherman Oaks area.
It's a good case against the person arrested, whether that's you or someone else, and we need to do some damage control and give the other side of the story. That's one thing that I've noticed in practicing now for quite some time is that the police and the prosecutors only get one slanted view of what happened. Sometimes what happens will happen in an hour or less, which defines a person's whole life.
That's not what we want. We want to paint a picture of the other person about their job, their family with character letters, and any additional information that shows that we're dealing with a good person.
Representation for All Types of Crimes
If they did get involved with some criminal activity, we want to make the argument that it's not going to happen again — that it was an aberration that is out of character. I think that's crucial when you're talking about somebody arrested in Sherman Oaks, which is a lovely area.
Sometimes somebody gets a DUI there. Maybe there's some fight — a battery or a more severe charge. So, you must contact a criminal defense attorney who can start to turn the tide in your favor. I do that by meeting with you or your loved one. We get a good sense of what happened and who they are. Then we set about trying to figure out how to tackle this problem.
We have to come to a meeting of the minds as far as the best solution that makes the most sense under your circumstances, and of course, we are looking to protect your rights, freedom, reputation, and all the things you hold dear.
That's why it's so imperative when you make that call. You're going to start the process of taking back control of your criminal case. So, do yourself a favor. Make a move now, and I will begin to turn the tide in your favor, and we're going to sit down and talk about what happened.
Seeking Best Resolution in Your Criminal Case
Then, I can get all the ins and outs of what happened so I can deal with the prosecutors and the judges who are the ones that are going to be tasked and responsible with charging the case and trying to get a punishment on the case.
They've got to hear your voice, and that's best done through your advocate — me who's been doing this for 26 years, worked for the District Attorney's office, working for a Superior Court judge, and been a criminal defense attorney since 1994. I've seen everything.
I've got hundreds of videos out on all topics of criminal defense. I've got books written. Please take the time to look at those, and let's sit down. We will make a particular plan for you and your situation to get you out of the criminal justice system as fast as possible.
