Los Angeles Sex Crime Attorney
Sex Crime Lawyer in Los Angeles
Sex crime cases in Los Angeles is an area of law that very few criminal defense lawyer can effectively defend. There is so much political pressure on prosecutors and such a stigma associated with sex crime cases, that many sex crime attorneys run into barriers when they attempt to defend their clients. Over my many years of practice I have successfully defended numerous clients charged with very serious sex crime cases. I believe that I am a respected advocate for my clients and one of the few attorneys that can actually make a difference for my clients charged with a sex crime. Where many of the attorneys advertising on the web fall short is in two crucial areas:
1) They do not know the political landscape of the 40 + Courthouses in Los Angeles County...and therefore do not know what to do or who to talk to in effectively representing their clients;
2) Many of the lawyers advertising on the web have never tried a serious case (let alone a sex crime case in Los Angeles County) and could not properly defend their clients in a jury trial if their life depended on it! In looking through the attorneys on the first page of many of the major search engines, it is unbelievable to me how many of them don't try cases and don't even go to court.
If you need help, call me and I will sit down with you and educated you on what needs to be done to be successful in your particular case.
