Former Gang Homicide Prosecutor &
Dealing with criminal charges can be a frightening experience. With the right criminal defense lawyer by your side it doesn’t have to be. Let my 25 years of experience as a lawyer including more than 11 years of experience as one of the toughest and most successful prosecutors in the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office be on your side. I have tried cases from the simplest burglaries to the most complicated multiple defendant dual jury hardcore gang murder trials. I have handled numerous high profile and celebrity related cases which have received national and international attention. My unrivaled record speaks for itself: only one jury trial lost in my career and a 100% trial success rate for murder cases. The practice of law is not a business, it is an art and a science. I take a fresh intellectual approach to each and every case making sure you get the best possible result.
Your criminal defense lawyer has a very important function: protecting your rights and your liberty. Make certain that your attorney has graduated from an ABA accredited law school. A list of ABA accredited law schools with the year of accreditation may be found here: http://www.americanbar.org/
Secondly, make certain that your criminal defense lawyer is a member in good standing with the California State Bar. You may search whether the lawyer has a record of discipline on the California State Bar website: www.calbar.org
Third, your attorney should be an experienced trial lawyer. Ask your criminal defense lawyer how many jury trials they have completed. Not court trials, not how many cases they have handled, but how many jury trials they have completed. A lawyer who has trial experience with serious cases such as murder trials will bring valuable experience and insight into your case, even if your case is a relatively minor case.
Finally, what is your lawyer’s reputation? Ask around. See where your lawyer has worked in the past? Is your criminal defense attorney a former prosecutor or public defender? Former state government attorneys have vast experience based on the sheer volume of cases they handle which will benefit you greatly.
