LAX Airport Courthouse

Learn Your Best Strategy if You Have a Matter Pending in the LAX Airport Court

The LAX Airport Courthouse, as you might guess, is near the airport and is a multi-million-dollar project that was built to basically take care of the cases on the west side of Los Angeles. Since there have been many court closures over the course of the last few years, courthouses such as Beverly Hills, Malibu, Hollywood, and a number of others have all been consolidated into the LAX court, making it a very busy courthouse. At this time, they are understaffed and are having difficulty dealing with the high volume of cases that run through their doors every day.

Therefore, it is crucial that you find an attorney who has experience in the LAX courthouse and who can successfully guide your way through it. By taking advantage of the fact that it's very busy and the prosecutors don't always have enough time to properly prepare some of the cases, skilled California criminal defense attorneys can use this to their advantage.

Being more prepared than the prosecutors and basically turning over every possible rock on your case – will give you the upper leg that you need in order to get the best possible result on your matter in the airport court.

Reviewing Every Step in Preparing Your Defense

Some of the crucial strategies that I use is will get the client and any family members that have an interest in the case, and we will sit down and go through the entire case step-by-step, piece-by-piece. I encourage the clients not to put a spin on any of the information or to leave out important facts because they think they're harmful to their case.

On the contrary, I think it's the best move to give me all the details of what happened, even as far as going from a police or prosecutor's standpoint. That way, once we get everything out on the table on how the government is going to attack you in this criminal case, we can then set about getting defenses to each of the points or at least explain what happened to either the prosecutor, judge, or a jury.

Giving your version of events and also giving the good things about yourself through character letters and other techniques gives you the best chance when you go into the criminal case. Another thing I like to do is to make sure that we sit down and we really decide what our strategy is going to be from the beginning.

I will usually ask my client, what do we have to have? What result do we need to get in order for you to be satisfied with the final outcome of your criminal case? Then we talk about whether the result they are attempting to get is actually achievable in the LAX court and what it will take to get that result. Then we both work together in putting in motion a plan that will get you the most successful result in the LAX court.

Is it a Good Idea to Take Your Case to Trial in the LAX Court?

One strategy that I've used in the right cases actually pushing the case all the way to trial, and then at the doorstep of trial, a lot of times, the prosecutors will give you the best possible result, and you can resolve your case.

This obviously is a dangerous strategy because sometimes the prosecutors are able to get their case together at the doorstep of trial, and then instead of giving you the best deal, they will actually become harsher in how they deal with your case in the airport court, and now you've put yourself in a bad position.

So, before your case is set for trial and is pushed to the edge of trial, we better make sure that you actually have a chance to win the case. This is where the best criminal defense attorneys come in because they can really break things down for you and give you a true idea of whether a jury in the LAX courthouse would actually consider finding you not guilty.

In other words, we need a road to victory and a road that can be traveled successfully without the pitfalls of a vicious judge or a prosecutor who is over-zealous in trying to get you convicted.

I encourage you to set up a free consultation, so we can sit down and go over everything and discuss the ins and outs of the LAX courthouse and the ins and outs of your case and make the right decision at the right time so that you can protect your rights, your freedom, your reputation and everything that is important to you in your life.

How Should You Handle a DUI Case?

I've been defending DUI cases in the LAX Airport courthouse since the courthouse opened.  Right now, they handle a huge amount of DUI cases because they are covering part of Malibu's jurisdiction, Beverly Hills, and of course, the whole area near the airport, so that's hundreds of cases every year that go through that courthouse.

If you've been caught, arrested, and are going to be charged with a DUI, you want to get an attorney who knows the courthouse and knows how to deal with the prosecutors and the people inside that courthouse, and also, in general, has a lot of experience dealing with DUI cases. 

We've been in and out of that courthouse almost on a daily basis, so we know what it takes to get a good result in the LAX courthouse.  Sometimes that result includes us fighting the case. Sometimes it includes us negotiating the case. 

That's one of the first things we're going to decide when we sit down and go over the case and see what evidence the prosecutors have and what type of a case the police have developed for them, and then we'll go over everything, and we'll know exactly how the Airport court is going to handle your particular case – what types of things we might be able to attack them on. We'll look at the following factors:

  • whether the stop was valid;
  • whether or not they can prove when you were actually driving the car;
  • whether they can prove what your blood alcohol level was. 

In other words, they do things the right way, or they cut corners and do things the wrong impermissible way.  These are some of the things we're going to be considering as we defend you in the Airport LAX courthouse.

We've got to look at the facts that are applicable to you – your background,  your history – how you did on the field sobriety case, how your driving was – and whether you really were unsafe on the road to operate a motor vehicle.  Sometimes that means you have a high blood alcohol level; maybe you're using marijuana or drugs.
