Searching for a Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney

When Searching for a Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney – Get the Right Information Versus Your Own Wishful Thinking

I can't tell you how many times people call me who have gotten themselves whipped up into a tizzy.  They're worried about their criminal case in Los Angeles.

They're looking for a criminal defense attorney and they've already got a whole story spun in their head with their own information.

They've talk to some people over the internet who probably either aren't attorneys or who are attorneys who really aren't paying attention to what they're saying.

They don't have the details related to their case but are obviously trying to convince them to retain the attorney, so they'll say whatever is necessary to get them to hire that particular attorney.

You Need Accurate Information

But this whole wishful thinking concept is one that I see a lot in criminal defense.  The reality is, what you need is information that is accurate, that is detailed and has to do with your criminal case.

Searching for a Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney

Information based on hopes, wishes and prayers really isn't going to help you at this point. Because you're facing criminal charges, you need a great criminal defense attorney on your side.

The best are the ones who really want to hear your story, but also want to hear the story of the other side, because that has to be dealt with.

That may have to be refuted and that may have to be explained to the prosecutor and judge if we want to get you the best possible result.

Facts and Credibility

So, forget all this wishful thinking.  Let's talk facts.  Let's talk credibility.  Let's talk what information the police and prosecutors are going to have about you and then we can really sit down and start dealing with it and start either developing a defense, or:

  • coming up with rational for why you got yourself into this position; and of course
  • how we're going to get you out of this position, and
  • how we're going to explain to the judge and the prosecutor what you're going to do moving forward so you don't get yourself in this position again.

Or, in some of the cases I do, we're going to have to deal with the fact that you're going to fight the case, we have to do our investigation and show the other side of the coin and prove to a jury that you are not guilty of the crime.

Meeting to Discuss Strategy

So, these are some of the things we need to grapple with and the way that we do that is, I have you come in and sit down with me.  We talk about the case.

I put my 30 years of experience to work for you dealing with criminal cases from a district attorney's point of view and  from a judge's point of view when I worked for a superior court judge.

Also, of course, from a criminal defense attorney point of view, since 1994, when I started practicing criminal defense after I worked for the LA District Attorney's office and after I worked as a research attorney for a superior court judge.

Let me put my skill set to work for you.  I'm going to tell you the truth.  I'm going to be straightforward with you because that's what you need if you want to get through this successfully.
