Ramey Warrant in a Los Angeles Criminal Case

This is a warrant that the police get by going directly to a Superior Court judge in one of the criminal courts in Los Angeles and asking the judge to issue a warrant for a particular defendant or defendants that they’re trying to get their hands on, arrest and hopefully have the prosecutors and District Attorneys in Los Angeles file a case against them. So, it’s a situation where the judge is issuing the warrant instead of the prosecutors and District Attorney’s office.  What’s interesting about this is the fact that usually, probably in 95% or better of cases in… Read More

Defense for Stealing Gas in Los Angeles

There’s a lot of schemes going on where individuals are working with inside people in gas stations to steal gas.  It could be truck drivers who are getting huge amounts of gas at a discounted rate or even paying nothing for the particular gas.

Now you’re looking at not being able to vote, having a felony conviction on your… Read More

Defense of a Dentist in Los Angeles Criminal Cases

Over the last 26 years I’ve represented a lot of dentists charged with various crimes.  Sometimes the crime charged relates to what they do in their practice.  In other words, while they’re performing some dental activities, they’re alleged to have touched the alleged victim in some inappropriate way or had sex with the alleged victim.
